HTC Slider Passes Through FCC With AT&T 3G

Well, look what we have here! The above HTC Android handset has just passed through the FCC with AT&T 3G bands.  Yippee!  I have got to be honest, I am loving the form factor, looks a lot like an HTC Touch Pro 2.  Typing on an Android version of the Touch Pro 2 makes me drool just thinking about it.  What do you guys think? Nice form factor?  Let us know in the comments!

    Looks interesting, I've been wanting an Android slider but imo it needs a call and end key like the moment, still I'll wait to see full specs and if it can be rooted.

    Sorry, I think it looks horrible and at least 3 years old!

    like Giovani, i've been waiting for an HTC slider. shame this one looks like some teenager's sidekick-inspired social networking phone. i guess htc figure if you want a keybaord then you must be in that twitter/facebook addicted crowd. where's the android phone aimed at the blackberry market, or the palm-pre market?

  • Depending on the specs it might make a very nice business-friendly phone.

    Keyboard layout seems to be non-standard. I wonder if it's going to be a deterrent to the phone adoption.

    Another factor to consider is AT&T's current reputation as a provider of crippled proprietary Android implementations. Will people care about that? The time will tell.

    It's also interesting to see what kind of marketing budget AT&T will allocate to this little guy.

    A very promising phone overall. Might be a healthy Droid competition if spun right.

    I personally detest the Palm Pre form factor like most Americans (you can slit someone's throat with those sharp edges). As far as Blackberry is concerned, to put that type of keyboard on a phone would make the screen as tiny as those horrible phones. As it is, this slider looks OK, but the screen is still too small; I'm guessing 3.2 inches, and it needs a dedicated number row like the G1 or the Moment.

    The palm pre form factor bad? You mean like a vertical slider or like the Treo and Blackberry? Or, is it just the sharp edges?

    I don't mind a vertical slider-I don't want to have to turn the phone to type…
