Though, slide out QWERTY Windows Phone seems to be a dying breed, people’s affection towards QWERTY slider has not crumbed down yet. With revised hardware specification for Windows Phone 8 family handsets, it would not be surprising if you get to see one or two QWERTY slider handsets. Nokia and Acer seems to be in race for creating such handsets to alleviate user’s yearn for physical keyboard equipped handset.
Acer allegedly working on Acer W11 WP8 handset with such capability. With WP8 (OS and handset) slated for later this year, we will definitely get more information by the time Acer releases it. Take this news with a grain of salt as there is no solid evidence available as of yet.
With slider keyword out of context, at-least in iOS device, this is an extremely viable option for Acer and Nokia to earn more dedicated users. In the past Acer has provided QWERTY smartphone, though on Windows Mobile platform. We can not deny the possibility of such option completely.
