The Slider's keyboard is accented nicely with red detailing, has four rows of keys, and includes navigational arrows.

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.

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

Even as a keyboard device, the Slider is a bulky 0.58-inch thick, and weighs 5.11 ounces.

In addition to navigating your handset with the keyboard, the Slider also has a 3.2-inch touch screen, similar to its predecessor, the Optimus V.
