Sliding phones are all the rage nowadays, but I don’t quite see a promising future for them, specially if we continue to buy full touchscreen devices without physical QWERTY keyboards. However, a new slider design could save this category of handsets. Swiss designer Matthias Pugin comes to the rescue, with his cool t02 concept phone.


This handset is small enough to be hidden in your palm and it comes with an innovative sliding mechanism, as shown in the images below. You should also know that the t02 concept phone is a classy device, with a black piano finish and a modern look. The keypad is strange, though and I’m not sure how comfortable it is to use.
