Motorola sliding QWERTY keyboard Android phone for Sprint

Good news for Sprint customers that are jealous of the recent T-Mobile QWERTY slider leak: a similar device has just surfaced for the Now Network. The photo you see above popped up in the Android Central forums and, as you can tell in the shot, the Motorola-made handset's got a five-row physical keyboard and Android 4.0 with a set of on-screen navigation keys. There's also a Sprint Music app visible in the shot. Outside of those few details, though, there's not much known about this unannounced smartphone.

It feels like it's been a while since we've seen any new Android devices with physical keyboards on Sprint, so this Motorola device and the recently-leaked LG LS860 should be welcome sights for QWERTY enthusiasts on the Now Network. While there's still a lot that we don't know about this new Motorola phone, it's possible it's the "Photon Q 4G LTE" that we got wind of back in April, especially since this slider appears to have angled corners that are reminiscent of the original Photon 4G. Good thing that we've at least got this leaked shot to keep us occupied until more details on it come out. What do all of you Sprint folk make of this keyboard-equipped Motorola phone? Any of you think that you'd be interested in checking it out if it hits Sprint's shelves?
