Images of the BlackBerry "slider" smartphone
Why make a vertical slider instead of a horizontal slider? If you're going to browse a web page, you probably want your smartphone to be in a horizontal position so that you can effectively view web pages. However, if you tend to use your smartphone using one hand, then it really helps to have a vertical slider so that you can access the keyboard buttons with a single hand. The problem with a horizontal slider is that it's difficult to type on those buttons using a single hand.
