    I have edited the original post. I made the keyboard smaller, and changed the length the entire device is when it slides out. The screen and everything else is the same. Oh and I added a trackpad to use when the device is open because tapping all the way the hell up top is impossible one handed.

    What about a sliding keyboard on the side ?

    Not so Blackberry-like but hey , it'd do a better job in my opinion. I'd feel weird type like that

    They dont even have landscape mode for full touch devices let alone a landscape slider

    Looks nice, not realistically comfy to hold though......the trackpad again!

    Trackpad is there because touching stuff up top with the slider open would be difficult one handed.

    You guys do realize how bloody awkward this keyboard would be to actually use, right? Tiny keyboard and 4+ inches of screen hanging off the top.

    The bottom lip of this phone would be packing a counterweight for the top

    It's still physically awkward and not a classically, aesthetically pleasing proportion.

    It's a nice mockup, don't get me wrong, but a Z30-sized vertical slider isn't something that makes sense. I could see it as a powerful horizontal slider, however. Something more akin to a miniature laptop.

    Anyone saying sliders wear out you've not carried. 9810 for 2.5 years. I would love a slider. They'd have a hit with best virtual keyboard and best qwerty keyboard all in one.

    Exactly, BB makes the best slider out there.

    With the rumors of a Z50 and Q30, this might have a sliver of a chance.

    Good images you created to match with your idea there. However;

    As others have said, the phone would be too unwieldy. Open, it would be huge and inelegant. In addition, the battery size is too small. The problem is that there is little innovation here: combining a phablet with a slider form requires some creativity and rather you have simply slapped the two forms together. There's a reason why this phone doesn't exist and why Samsung (A mobile maker who isn't afraid to try a new idea) has not put the two together - that reason is due to the concept being unworkable and unattractive to the consumer and that a slider phone is dated.

    Blackberry needs to get its meat and potatoes, its bread and butter right before trying to make something outlandish.

    If they did make it, it would be a huge failure, one they cannot afford to have right now.

    I suddenly feel like this should be relevant again, with the trackpad and all. I think I'll make a new version of it when I get home tonight.
