Easy-to-feel buttons

Not only do the keyboard buttons rise above the surface, but also the four usual navigational buttons below the screen -- making them that much easier to press.

No flash photography

On the back, the Slider has a 3.2-megapixel camera with a Macro-focus feature. Unfortunately, a flash isn't included.
