    Absolutely, but I just don't buy it. Thorsten is far too security conscious and Anti-leaking (believe it or not) to let his friends or family use a product that's only in its conception stage, let alone at a preproduction stage. He didn't use a Z10 until a couple of weeks before it was publicly announced.

    I think there is a not insignificant latent demand for qwerty devices in the market place that no one other than Blackberry is even attempting to tap into but at the same time accept that the Q10/5 form factor may not be to everyone's taste.

    I really like the look of the never brought to market Nokia N950 with it's touch screen display and good size slide out qwerty for when you've got some proper writing to do. I'd almost throw my money as someone who brought out an up to date phone like that.

    Lol really? So I guess that means that all these A10 videos are fake.? Or does this mean they are gonna announce that the A10 is gonna be announced this week? Just because THORS son was using a new BB10 phone to try doesn't mean anything . It could be one of 30 slider prototypes ! Doesn't mean it's the final product. If you want why don't you PM me and I can give you his FB info and shoot him an email and ask him if he gets tester phones??? Better yet let's get crackberry Kevin to contact him Via Facebook for an interview and he can ask him

    I would definitely buy that. All my phones have been sliders for a long time. And portrait sliders seem better to me. As long as there isn't a balance problem. The Palm Pre was small, bigger phones would have to pay more attention to balance. If they build it, I will come.

    What about Thorsten saying not more then 6 devices...or was it seven? Is the sixth one the slider instead of a Z5 or whatever?
    Don't think Thor included the BBOS in his 6 new devices . . . . . . . so . . . . . Z10, Q10, Q5, A10, ? and ?. Ya never know. LoL

    I would definitely get another slider. Had both 9800 and 9810.

    I would buy a slider. Big screen with keyboard is a win win. I have to believe!

    And then I woke up.
    this i agree, i miss my QWERTY on my Z10 if this comes out around the same time as the A-series if it is for real then i'm on it like flies on sh*t

    Does it look something like this?
    Holding on to my Torch 9810, provided BlackBerry does not screw up (like again...), I will buy. I simply love the form factor of Torch.

    Is it just me, or wouldn't one of those bottom sliders get top heavy very easily? Wouldn't it be awkward to hold in the hand as you type?

    That would be an amazing phone. I've seen people with Torches and have honestly just gravitated towards that phone. It's so gorgeous. Perhaps we will see a BB10 slider; and it makes sense, since they seem to be going in all directions, between all-touch, touch and keyboard, and this might be the next step.

    I would take a BB10 slider if it was offered. Ultimate form factor: Bigger screen plus slide-out keyboard.

    All of BB's rivals are pretty much making touchscreen slates only now. How sad and how boring. BB has distinguished itself nicely with the Q10 - would love to see an S10 (slider!) in the mix too.

    I would be all over a BB10 slider like Paula Deen on a cake.

    I really like my Z10, but man do I miss my 9810.

    I still use a 9800 and it has never given me a problem-the way a phone should be. I would definitely consider moving up to an OS10 slider.

    i had a 9800 for a short time, lost it in a cab, and went for a 9700 to replace it because the early 9800 was a little buggy on the os. If they could nail both the power/battery of the Q10 and give us a keyboard that did not feel as shallow as the 9800 i would be there for the screen size of a Z10. It would be especially sweet if you could use glass keyboard for short messages and slide for real work.

    It actually would have been smarter for BBRY to launch OS10 with a killer spec slider rather than a Q & Z strategy. If they were making/marketing/selling one high-end phone they could have later launched mid range phones like the Z or Q which would be optimized against an OS which was already optimized for both glass and hard keyboards.

    Who thinks a bb10 slider would be a bad idea given that the screen unlock/awake motion could cause the slider to flick slightly upwards?
