Default Upcoming sliders?

My SE x10 mini pro is nice, but getting a but sluggish with its A2.1 . Time to start looking for a replacement.

Any news on upcoming sliders which will run A4.0 or above? anything from Sony?

TIA

Sliders and qwerty keyboard phones in general are going by the wayside in favor of slates.
The latest that I know of is the Photon Q which I believe is tied to Sprint.

I think you need a certain post count to take links, i don't know exactly but that could be the issue.

This is a CDMA keyboard slider from LG: LG Mach LS860 - Full phone specifications

This is a GSM one from Samsung: Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G T699 - Full phone specifications

I think the Samsung one will be available on T-Mobile in the US. Not sure about the LG one as I just heard about it this past week.
