Another BlackBerry slider rumor. Is a portrait slider in the future?
We have been hearing about rumors of a BlackBerry slider for a while now. We have also heard (and seen) rumors about the touchscreen/QWERTY hybrid device known as the Magnum/Dakota. Well, here is another one to throw in the pot. Boy Genius has been given some information about a new portrait slider rumor. This slider is said to include OS 6.0 and 100% support for 802.11n.
Now the picture above is just a photoshopped picture that I made up. But in a weird kind of way, I think I would really like it. Having a nice big touchscreen is what I want for reading emails and browsing the web. But a sliding QWERTY keyboard would make the device great for typing. But I don't know if a portrait slider would be as easy to use as a landscape slider. So what do you guys think? Would you like to see this portrait slider become reality? Or would you rather just have a traditional slider BlackBerry?
