HTC Touch HD to gain a slide-out keyboard?

There is an interesting rumour floating about that the HTC Touch HD could soon get a sibling with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. This would be similar to what we saw with the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro where both non-keyboard and keyboard options are offered.

A mockup of said device already exists. It would be interesting to know how much thicker the keyboard version would be compared to the 1.2 centimeters of the HTC Touch HD.

I just hope that if such a device does surface, North America will not be locked out again as it was with the HTC Touch HD.
