Moto ROKR E8 - it really does exist

In fact, BGR has it in their grubby hands as we speak. The part of the phone they seem to be most intrigued with is the haptic, touch sensitive, morphing, keypad.

It's hard to explain, but the keypad area of the front fascia of the phone is flat, and blank. Haptics offer up the tactile feedback for the phones keypad which changes based on what you are doing. For example, if you are using the phone function, it's a number pad, if you are using the media player function, it has music controls for buttons, and if you are using the camera function, there is a set of buttons for that too.

Other than that it has a 2MP cam, Bluetooth, quad-band GSM/EDGE, a 3.5mm headset jack, and the MOTOMAGX platform to run on. There isn't any word on price or availability or even which carriers are getting it, but you'll know as soon as we do.
