Another Portrait QWERTY Motorola Handset for Sprint

Thanks to a freshly leaked (and blurry) photo, we’re getting our first look at a new Motorola handset headed to Sprint.  Bearing a very XPRT-like form factor, the phone looks to have a portrait QWERTY keyboard below a smallish (maybe 3.1-inch 320×480) display.  According to a source close to The Pop Herald, this new guy will be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and could possibly support Sprint’s 4G WiMAX network.  Yeah, we know… not much of a stretch.

We can’t say for certain until we get more details or better pics, but we might be looking at a Palm Pre-esque design with a slide-out keyboard.  Looking through the blur here, we can totally imagine the keys sliding out from under the rounded bottom.  Motorola has a history of constantly changing the design up from one Android model to the next.  Whatever the case, it looks like this is the next in the renewed relationship between Motorola and Sprint.
