That would be pretty sweet, although I think it would make the phone a little bulky.
That’s one of my main concerns when it comes to phones. I very much like the dimensions of my Blackberry Tour 9630. It’s easy to pocket and small enough that it can fit easily in a belt holder. Newer smartphones are getting pretty large. While they are thinner than a Blackberry, the Samsung Galaxy and HTC Evo, for example, are more than an inch longer than my Blackberry, and the new iPhone 5 will be half an inch longer. While I recognize that people like a nice screen for their phones, they’re getting big enough to be a little unwieldy. I carry my phone for business purposes, and I carry it much more than I use it. I hope that when RIM finally coughs up new phones, they don’t follow that trend. If not, then I’ll be looking elsewhere for something more compact.
