Sprint’s Motorola Admiral Pictured in the Wild

Sprint’s Motorola Admiral has been pictured in the wild, and wouldn’t you know, it looks a lot like the handset pictured in an official promo video posted last month. While we speculated an announcement would be forthcoming shortly, the video was pulled and no further word has been given about the Sprint Direct Connect device. Given that history, we are hesitant to speculate on whether or not the new photos suggest a release could be imminent, but expecting the phone sometime in the near future is a safe bet.

Word along with the photos confirms the specs laid out previously: a 1.2GHz single-core CPU, 3.1-inch display, 5MP camera, and Android 2.3.

    I just don’t get it. Do we REALLY need this form factor AGAIN?! We already have the Samsung Replenish, Kyocera Brio, Sanyo SCP-2700, Blackberry Curve, Blackberry Tour, Motorola XPRT, Motorola Titanium, Motorola ES400S ..and now this?!

    Why was the LG Optimus Slider cancelled?!?! Why can’t we get something cool like the LG note slider?
