The Motorola PHOTON 4G is shaping up to be Sprint's alternative to the Motorola ATRIX 4G, yet it comes with an extra trick or two up its sleeve. Offering plenty of processing power and display real estate, the Tegra 2-powered device...

Yes another winner for Sprint. Wow just another great 4G phone on Sprint. That is not to mention that the Samsung Galaxy S II is STILL not even out yet. Sprint has a killer line of ultra powerful Android phones. Just another notch on the belt of America's hottest carrier Sprint!

Yeah, I gotta give the thumbs up to Sprint on this one. Very impressive. If they can continue to improve their coverage and customer service, they could a few consecutive quarters in the black.

And so far (at least with the EVO 3D), Sprint is ordering sufficient stock of their high end handsets. At the same time after sales started last year, the EVO had sold out, and no one knew when new stock would be available.
Give Sprint credit for adequately ordering this time around. (thumb up)

If this and other new phones will not get upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich why buy them as in less then a year they will be dated with no future upgrades.

It's shipping with Gingerbread, which means it most probably WILL be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. Most high end Android phones right now have gone through two software updates: the original DROID started out with Android 2.0 and ended up with 2.2, the DROID X started with 2.1 and now has 2.3, and the same with the Evo.

Am I the only one who thinks it is kinda ironic that, considering how important Verizon was to Motorola's success, both AT&T (Atrix) and Sprint will most likely have a premium device from Moto before the Bionic on Big Red?

My biggest question about the Photon is: Why does a phone, that is significantly larger than its sibling, with essentially the same internal hardware, have a smaller capacity battery? If Motorola can stuff a 1930 mAh battery into the, relatively, svelte Atrix why can't they do the same for the more physically imposing Photon?

I'm so glad to know that Sprint's phone line-up won't stay Samsung and HTC centric. Come on LG, Kyocera/Sanyo, HP/Palm! Show us something good w/4G! You can do it! Don't let Samsung or HTC hog up the spot light!

Kyocera tried it's hand twice with Android devices on Sprint. The Zio and the incredibly depressing Echo. Both those phones had some major flaws in their design and delivery. LG has been making some noise on some other carriers, so hopefully they come up with a big daddy and HP/Palm might not ever come back to Sprint. (Or might not be welcome.)

Im really considering this, As a sprint fan-boy I was happy we had this speedster but i never really liked Motorola, Im a Samsung guy, My epic is awesome but The sequel will be so wack, sound like and the galaxy s2 or full touch 4g not sure i don't like to guess, but whatever it has to be dominant, But i think i want this its fast and sexy looking,
