    I was under the impression that the Magnum and/or the Dakota were not going to be slider devices (speculation of course)...looks like I was wrong. I really am not a fan of the slider form. I would be so happy with a phone like my 9700...except if it were touch screen, as well. Am I alone here in not liking the slider?

    full size screen
    real keyboard

    it's the only one i do want.

    best of both worlds.

    someday i expect they'll add a touchscreen so it has both.

    I worry about the actual slider because of the moving parts. More that can go wrong! I can picture the threads now.

    Dakota is not the slider. Talladega aka Mr. T is the slider.

    But people seem to think that the dakota/magnum concept led to the slider and that the dakota concept will be left on the pre production concept cutting room floor. All rumor mill of course.

    Dakota is the 9000 with a touch screen.

    i agree with the slider hate as well. I've had sliders and i just don't like them , plus it adds to the bulkyness of a phone which BB is already pushing the limit on in my opinion anyways.

    The Magnum/Dakota concept probably isn't gone, simply pushed back by a carrier wanting a slider before that and having the order numbers to convince them too.

    can't wait for a slider... it's the only way to have both a LARGE screen and a PHYSICAL keyboard... unless you want a friggin tablet sized device... i welcome the slider with open arms... I hope it comes soon so I can ditch android...
