Hands-on with the Motorola Evoke QA4--photos

The Evoke sports and eye-catching slider design with a touch screen and multimedia features. It doesn't offer much new, but at least it's not another Razr.

The Moto Evoke's 2.8-inch touch-screen is a little small for our tastes. The icon-based menu is intuitive, however. Just one physical control sits below the display while the keypad hides behind the sliding design. The keypad buttons are large, but also flat.

The virtual QWERTY keybaord will be your primary interface for messages, notes and e-mails. It's relatively easy to use, but the display's small size means that few shortcut controls are available. Also, you must click through to a second keyboard for numeric keys.

You also can tap out messages using the virtual dialpad. We'd rather use the physical keys, though.

On the rear of the Evoke, you'll find the camera lens. We like the handset's smooth shape and curved ends.

The Evoke has a relatively thin profile. It has a comfortable, solid feel in the hand.

The Evoke has several widgets. You can cycle through them by swiping your finger across the display.
