UnwiredView spotted HTC has filed a patent for a new, smaller type of slider phone:
Make the numeric keypad a part of the QWERTY keyboard plate. Have the phone display covering most of QWERTY keyboard, except for the numeric keypad part, in a closed mode.

To open into a text/mesaging QWERTY landscape mode, just slide the screen diagonally across the keyboard plate and fix the display in the top/middle of it.

Voila. You still have all the benefits of the S730 smartphone, the same display size, but in a smaller package.
