Poll results: Would you buy a flip or slider phone with Android?

Nothing says "this conversation is over" better than the satisfying click of a flip phone, while the BlackBerry Priv is already proving there is a market for decked-out sliders, too. That is why we asked you yesterday if you would buy an Android flip phone or a slider in today's world of thin phones with large displays. Well, well, well, it looks like these ancient form factors still have plenty of fans, as only 27% of our respondents said a resounding "no," so manufacturers might want to take note, and issue a richer variety.
The rumor mill on Samsung's next clamshell with Android, the Galaxy Golden 3, is in overdrive, as the flip leaked today from the Chinese certification agency TENAA, flaunting pretty great specs for what has been a nearly forgotten form factor.
Would you buy a flip or slider phone with Android?
Absolutely, I love those form factors
Depends on the specs

Here folks is how Apple simply brainwashed the entire human race that a certain product would only matter if it has an Apple logo attached.

I think tmobile should try the sidekick one more time... miss having a slide out keyboard but a flip phone would be cool to have as well. Something that can slide into my pocket as opposed to having it hanging off my belt. I am a big guy that tends to bump into things lol

If T-Mobile did a Sidekick with Android and the original circle slide around style- I would get one and so would my kids- They recently found all of my old sidekicks and wanted me to activate them for them. I told them they don't really work anymore. Shame, As I miss that specific form factor- Sidekick D Wade edition anyone...???

Definitively, QWERTY keyboards are much, much better than those hard to use touch keyboards. I know touch were introduced to lower costs and make phones more reliable, but when one has enormous fingers, you simple write: tttttttjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. So hard to use them and so much waste of time. And APPLE isn't as good as people say. They just have brand name and extremely expensive phones performing almost the same as a good USD60.00 one.
