I am not a fan of slider phones in the first place. I have seen too many instances where the slide breaks or rips the cables. (thats partly why i am sworn off of flip phones too)Personal: Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE, Nexus 7 16gb tablet

No. No interest in going to a smaller phone (once you go 4.3, you never go back).
Also, sliding qwerty is just another moving part that can break / adds bulk (besides, I like the on-screen keyboard = Swype).
I'll leave the EVO when they come out with an EVO Pro / EVO Deluxe / EVO with Cheese that has a dual core processor, more RAM, internal memory etc.

Ya ya it something new but they are sorta downgrading alot of thing I'm not going to name but if you own and Evo like me then you saw what was going on speedy what ever don't care when your loosing so much and adding more weakening part that are deff going to brake soon or later and I will say like alot of people are saying now I'm sticking with the BIG SIMPLY PERFECT EVO :-) SORRY 800 MHZ processer I'm happy with my mid range 1ghz old chip haha and front facing video camera

Absolutely not. I cant stand sliders. Also I think it looks terrible. There's WAY too much wasted space on the bottom. It looks really weird. While it may be faster than the original Evo, the Evo is still fast enough. NO FFC, no HDMI, no kickstand, smaller screen.. ya I'll pass..
And just for the record.. Even though it's rated at "only 800mhz", it's gonna be at least as fast as the 1ghz Evo, possibly even slightly faster. But still not enough for me to switch over. Not a chance in hell

Ok, so I don't "need" a physical keyboard after having gotten used to the touch screen keyboard on my Evo, but the reality is (as a former Blackberry user) it's much easier to type longer emails on the go using a physical keyboard.
That being said, I don't see how they couldn't have put a 4 inch screen on this thing. Or a higher clocked processor. And the other big thing missing (if this is aimed towards business customers) is a GSM radio for international roaming. I mean the Droid 2 global with a 1.2 ghz processor, a 3.7 inch screen, and a GSM radio has been out for over a month and it's pretty much the same form factor as the shift. In comparison, this device looks like it's already 4 months outdated before it's even released.Former Android user trying iOS on for size.
