Blackberry variant of Pinephone/Pinephone Pro
(12-03-2021, 06:24 AM)beta-user Wrote: Many people just want a keyboard that slides so that you could still use the phone as a phone. With PinePhone's keyboard what am I supposed to do when someone calls me? Am I supposed to quickly change the backplate to remove the keyboard so that I could put the phone to my ear? It's really cool that Pine is making this, but I'm not yet convinced this design will be practical. Slider keyboards were used in many phones and we know what to expect from them.

Yes, the N900 KB option, the difficulty is in making a good thin tactile click keyboard(like the Zaurus and N900) and a strong slider rail mechanism.  A rubber pad keys keyboard would fail early and there is no tactile click to know you had made a keystroke.
