Motorola first debuted the, uh, Debut i856 for Boost Mobile early last month, and now it has brought the handset to Sprint Nextel as well.

Touted as the first slider phone to feature Nextel's push-to-talk technology, the Debut also has multimedia features like a 1.3-megapixel camera and a music player. You can also switch from a push-to-talk call to a regular voice call. Aside from the carrier difference, the Nextel Debut is the same as the one for Boost.

Since the Nextel version is subsidized, it will be available for $99.99 with a two-year service agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate (compare to the non-contract Boost price of $170).
