I'd like to dispel some of the notions posted here that either "Oregon clam"
or "US Senator's" ear to mouth dimensions served as
guidelines of my original designs.

I agree, thanks. Maybe if some of the Motorola's marketing management didn't
try so hard to kill the flip internally, it would still be synonymous with
the company that originally popularized it.
