Call it "Motorola's dying gasp."Dying gasp, of course, because the iPhone stole Motorola's thunder.

Call it "Motorola's dying gasp."

Dying gasp, of course, because the iPhone stole Motorola's thunder.

Four handsets are coming to Verizon Wireless in 2009, code-named "Flash," "Rush 2," "Calgary" and "Inferno," according to the rascally reporters at BoyGeniusReport, and if these leaked images are indeed the real thing, here's a glimpse at Motorola's latest styling cues:

Motorola "Flash"

Three more handsets, after the jump...

Motorola "Calgary"

Motorola "Inferno"

Some signature styling cues for sure...and some very new ones indeed.

The edgy handsets -- Flash, and to a lesser extent, Calgary -- are the most notable, I think. Strikes me as a nice way to separate a product from the saturation-point iPhone styling without losing sight of the fact that one flat side of the device must be dedicated to the surface by whicha user operates the phone.
