Sprint and Motorola may be teaming up to bring consumers a QWERTY slider Android phone.  While Android 4.0 ICS aims to eliminate the need for a hard keypad, it doesn’t hurt to also have an ICS device with some solid buttons for those that don’t like to touch their screens.

A picture alone doesn’t say much about the phone, but chances are the Sprint-Motorola slider phone is an entry to mid-range device.  Several years ago the QWERTY Sidekick from Motorola seemed to dominate the hands of teens and young adults.  Perhaps Sprint and Motorola is aiming to bring back the past.

From the screenshot, the phone shows the possibility that it’s running ICS—evident through the virtual buttons on the right side of the screen.  It’s hard to gauge the size of the screen as there’s no reference objects in the picture, but it’s quite realistic to expect the screen to be 3.5-4.0’’.

Hardware-wise, if the phone is running ICS, we can guess that a 1.0+GHz single or dual core CPU is humming under the hood, 4GB of internal storage for the ICS firmware, and at least 512MB RAM for minimal multitasking.
