    I am also thinking about that. BlackBerry knows what to do. It will be surely an awesome device...

    Remains to be seen. If I pick this up, I'm not sure if I'll even use the PKB

    You need to have the top half of the screen clipped onto your ears. The clips are included.

    Everyone thought the Passport was impossible to type on either.. I think we just naturally adapt and get to find a way to hold a device.

    Blackberry has made stupid decisions before, but I'm pretty sure that they made sure that the phone wasn't out of balance when opened. So relax.

    I used to have a Pre3, a wonderful slider phone whose release HP botched. I think if BlackBerry keeps the screen at no more than 5" it should be all right to manage as I once did with my webOS device.

    Using the keyboard. How else would you type on this?

    The Torch devices had both hardware and software keyboards, I'm sure this slider will too.

    Passport is wide, there is a big difference here. And even then Passport requires to be held with both hands.

    Yes but if typing on the physical keyboard is not very comfortable, then what is the point?

    Thank you. Only Pre 3 owners will know why this phone should not be beyond 5". Everyone else thinks I'm crazy.

    My best assumption is it'd be the same logic as the Torch for typing. The back part of the phone is the weightier part and would hold the battery part, so it'll naturally balance itself in your hands when you're holding same as the Torch's.

    As for keyboard, my best guess would be that it will have the PKB, as well as the BlackBerry10 virtual keyboard for when the slider is closed. This would make sense since the Torch's on BBOS had the BlackBerryOS virtual keyboard (which was god-awful, but the idea was there). Plus for simple messages, why bother sliding it out when you are just typing one emotion or a few letters/numbers?

    And why modify the entire OS to remove the virtual keyboard when they could just reuse the say, Z30 OS with just adding the PKB and curved screen drivers.

    It will probably be just like the Torch. Nice in normal use, but if you use it while laying down, it will most definitely fall on your face. And since it's a slider, it will be heavy and hurt a lot.

    Trust me, I would know. I used a BlackBerry Torch for two years.

    Ya it looks huge. If it was Z10 sized it'd be perfect. Obviously it'll be bottom heavy. Just when I think I've bought my last BlackBerry they do something like this. Damn you BlackBerry. I loved my torch and after classic purchase now I gotta buy this guy? Booooo

    I second that, I used mine between both the BBOS6 and 7 models for a few years and dropped it on me face numerous times -.-

    It'll be nicer with this though as the phone would be lighter than those old hunks! :P

    What I can say from my own personal, extensive, BlackBerry Torch slider experiences (9800/9810), is that the physical keyboard typing on those devices was not uncomfortable at all. It worked perfectly fine and I used those hardware keyboards a lot.

    None of us (I think) have experienced this new slider at all. But if I were to remember how my previous experience was on those old sliders, combine that with how much bigger this new device keyboard will be, I'd have to conclude that the new one will be even better than the Torch sliders.
