What is a Mobile “Slide”

The world of design of cell phones and smartphones is one of the most eclectic possible. But within that diversity, cell phones can take on a few different types of formats. One of these formats for a device is the so-called “slide” cell phone.

Slide Cell Phone: What is it?

Some readers still unfamiliar with the terms regarding cell phone in general send me message asking about what the term ” slide ” means and also why it is called ” slide cell phone “. The answer is simple.

The term ” slide ” means “to slip, to slide”. Cellular devices that show the keyboard when sliding one part over the other are so-called ” slide ” style mobiles . There are also other types that will be spoken in other articles, such as the flip cell phone and the bar cell phone.

Examples of slide cell phones

In the photos below you can see some examples of slide mobiles.

An interesting feature of the slide phone is that the “sliding” keys allow the device to be more compact when closed, taking up less space in a bag, for example.

With the popularization of smartphones with touchscreen, slide cell phone models have fallen into disuse. But big manufacturers are still releasing top-of-the-line mobile phones with slide features every once in a while.
For a long time, the slide was the “top of the line” market. Today, not even the simplest brother, the “flip” model, is used by many models of smartphone manufacturers.
It’s interesting to see how the trends change, is not it? And it looks like the slide cell phone was a trend less than 10 years ago! With the advancements in technology, it is surprising to see how even the design of an appliance is capable of changing so much in such a short time. Who knows, the popularization of watches with Android is not the next step of these designs? What do you think? Leave a Reply
