Just after the touchscreen BlackBerry patent was published yesterday and from what I believe to be pressure from my “Should RIM come out with a slider phone BlackBerry” poll?, new BlackBerry patents were published today describing describing tilting and slide-out keyboards.

The whole line about the pressure from my poll may be be a big far fetched, however, a Touch Screen BlackBerry with a slide-out keyboard is looking more and more like something that will soon some to fruition.
