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.

A little bit thick

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

Don't forget the touch screen

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.
