Since the first launch of the Windows Mobile Smartphone, we get "tons" (if you can say this in relation to Windows Mobile Smartphones) of candybar Smartphones. From the HTC SPVs to the Samsung i300/310 and the soon to be launched HTC Breeze. However, in the same time (and I'm only talking about GSM phones now) we only got three clamshell devices (Motorola MPx200/MPx220) and the soon to be launched HTC Star Trek (aka Dopod S300). We haven't seen a single Windows Mobile Smartphone slider yet, such a nice one as recently released by LG as the Chocolate or the soon to be launched Samsung SGH-E900 and it makes me wonder why we haven't seen this form factor for Smartphones by now?
Is there no market for slider Smartphones, does the OMDs just misses an opportunity or is it just me who like sliders as well?

What would be your favorite Smartphone form factor?

Until I got a MPx220, I was always a candybar user. However, this changed with the MPx220 and I'm looking forward the new HTC Star Trek now. But I'm also attracted by the idea of the slider concept, what's about you?
