Probably forgetting a few. And before that I walked around with Psion and predecessors. It was either stylus (PalmPilot) or keyboard.

The poll is slightly inaccurate because it did not allow for having both smart and not smart phones with keyboards (as I had both) 

Yeah, can be hard to make groups mutually exclusive and yet covering everyone. And with a reasonably limited number of groups....

How do you count a Samsung S8- with a click on keyboard that I did not use all the time... Or what about people using BT keyboards rarely/frequently/always...

I called it option 3

Somehow I felt it obvious smartphone is then the choise to list, thinking over it consciously however... I myself used an n900 followed by a slab followed by a nokia e72 and then slab again, so i should know better :D.

I thought that "not-so-smart" phone would mean a low-spec smartphone (since it was slow as hell).
But I don't think it does really matter...

What I meant is featurephones, alas polls are not editable.

Feature-phones are a lot more than dumb phones.  Feaurephones have internet access, dumb phones don't.   I assumed that's what he meant, as very few went straight from dumb-phone to smart-phone.  All analog phones were dumbphones.

Palm Treo, Palm Centro, HTC Wizard, Nokia N900 ... heck I can’t even recall what it is like to have a phone with keyboard anymore. Looking forward to feeling young again with Pro1.

I mean, I got this Moto Z to use the keyboard mod with it... and that fell flat. Don't blame me.
I should've waited, but at the same time I had an Xperia Pro which kinda had no space left to install any new apps. Got a bit painful after a while, especially when moving apps to SD means to only move a tiny part of them.

Keyboard sliders met their end here earlier than in the US too. I don't think there was anything with multiple cores or LTE here unless you imported it.
And well, at the point when I had an incentive to ditch the Xperia, the importable devices were also kinda old as well.

And before that I had something uhh, interesting I guess? An E-Ten Glofiish M800. Back when in my mind, Windows Mobile was a valid choice. It had a backlit keyboard and pen input, so that was nice. The software and 64 MB RAM (24~ free for apps) not so much. Still boots, but the battery is pretty much dead at this point.

What is the latest slider keyboard phone we have currently? Is it the Photon Q or are there newer devices with better hardware?

I didn't hear about the Nokia N950 before so I probably just lived on the moon.

The N950 was a device only ever made as a development kit and not available for sale to the public, but being very beautiful it hasn't been forgotten. I believe it was one of the main inspirations for the Pro1.

I would have been hurting a lot more than I am if I didn't have the Link2SD app on my Galaxy S Relay 4G.  The internal storage in my phone runs *slower* than the SD card does, so my apps run *faster* with them moved to that card through this app.  And the app moves everything over, unlike some other methods.
