    Well, it has been 2.5 years since the Quantum debuted, but you never know. The trend now is the slab, but trends come and go. Maybe the BB Q10 is a huge success and sparks renewed interest in being able to type without constantly hitting the backspace soft key. Although, I prefer landscape sliders, so yeah maybe I'm SOL. It's OK for now as WP8 seems like an upgrade/downgrade hybrid which I intend to skip, so I will hang on to this Quantum at least until GDR2.

    Except the n900 still is a fit to your criteria, depending on your weightpoints on the OS part.
    And several other phones, like Nokias E-range with Belle.

    That being said you can easily type tons without using a soft backspace key on at least Android.

    I like vertical sliders like the dvp, but if the surface phone had a clip on for either type, that would be awesome.

    I've never been on the Nokia ship, or any other ship. Brand loyalty is stupid, as are people who believe in it. I've owned older Nokia candybar phones and N series phones. I wasn't wowwed by them. I've had phones from every manufacturer. Get whatever is good. Companies change and products change. The hamsters making and designing these phones come and go. Companies do not have "souls" or any allegiance to anyone or any principle except for their investors and quarterly reports. I only care about Nokia again because of the Pureview camera. Once they abandon that or screw it up, or someone else like Sony or Panasonic or whoever decides to make a competing product, I'll weigh the choices and change accordingly. People seem to forget that only a little over a year ago, Nokia was an incorrigible dinosaur stuck on Symbian and making subpar smartphones, having ignored the cries of their fans and the hand of the market, as iPhones and Galaxy phones had been eating away at them voraciously for years and yet they didn't do anything about it. Yes, it's the same Nokia as today. Same name anyway. It's just another company after all.
