I would like to see a touchscreen/full qwerty keyboard in the near future. But I hope it doesn't look like this. I agree a side slider would look better. Lets see what comes of this.
Mmmm white castle sliders, sadly not in Canada. :( oh wait that's not what this thread is about.
A slider BB? I would like to see a bit of a larger screen and still have my beloved keyboard. Gotta love the age old tradtion of rumours, they're only true after something becomes a reality. I will patiently await what actually come to pass. I wouldn't argue with more choices in BB.

..once upon a time I owned a Samsung i730; it was a full sized touchscreen (winmo) phone with a bottom/portriat slider. In my option it beat the side sliders hands-down, mainly becase I could operate it one handed, or with two for faster / longer typing.

As you can see by the reviews, I wasn't the only person that liked it...
Another "feature" that I really do miss from that thing was the high powered infrared transmitter.. I can't tell you how great it was to be sitting in a restaurant / bar and be able to control the TV Channel from my phone!
True. It could be smaller. I was just thinking, the good thing about a portrait slider is one handed operation while you drive :bigeyes:

For the love of god stop with the sliders. There the biggest piece of crap on a phone. Were in the new age now. The technology age. Think of something bigger and better. Enough with the old shit. Sheesh. No wonder china is way ahead of us in technology. :no:
I agree with you 100% on this. At the same time, you have to remember even though slider phones have been around since the pilgrims, it is something new to RIM. It's sad that they are so far behind on design types that they are finally getting to the slider aspect of devices.
