That heap of parts pictured above is not the Droid you are looking for – assuming that you want one that works, that is.
iFixit user Dr. Wreck ripped apart the Droid, and posted his teardown here.
The phone was quite a handful to take apart, having a multitude of hidden screws and latches. Interestingly enough, the sliding mechanism consisted of two rails that were imbedded (sp) within the screen portion of the device, providing a simple and effective method to slide out the keyboard. Sadly, no aliens or hidden messages to Princess Leia were found inside.
iFixit promptly awarded Dr. Wreck $300 for his efforts. Sadly, the Droid didn't make it through the procedure.
