my name is Judy, and I plan to exchange my Hero for the Moment as soon as Best Buy gets it in (I have already talked to them about doing that) precisely because the Moment does have the landscape slider.  Don't you just love having choices?  I want to stay with Sprint and Android, so I couldn't be happier that Sprint is committed to providing choices for everyone. Share your view with me at a fans site for the upcoming Samsung Moment.
