New Slider MS Smartphone – the Remo

Rumors are surfacing about a new Smartphone from “New Uroa-Tech/ICT Technologies” (yeah, I’ve never heard of them, either) called the Remo:

The most distinguishing factor about this unit is the slider keypad. This design seems to be gaining popularity in feature phones, so I guess it was only a matter of time until we saw a Smartphone take advantage of it.

No idea if these pics are real or not, but they’re interesting, nonetheless. I’m not sure if I would choose a slider over a clamshell (or even a candybar, for that matter), but I’m all for innovation in hardware design for Smartphones.
