Motorola PHOTON 4G available now at Sprint

Motorola PHOTON 4G available now at Sprint
Motorola's latest high end Android handset is now available from Sprint's retail outlets. The Motorola PHOTON 4G, as we reported, could have been ordered a couple of days ago online, but for those who would rather head into a store to make the purchase in person, that option is now available to you. The PHOTON 4G is priced at $199.99 with a signed 2-year contract , $549.99 off contract, and is Motorola's first 4G enabled device for Sprint.

The specs scream out "high-end" starting with the 4.3 inch qHD display and the dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor under the hood. Unlike the recently launched Motorola DROID 3, which offers 512MB of RAM, the PHOTON 4G has 1GB of RAM on board. As you would expect from a high-end device these days, the PHOTON 4G brings you not one, but two cameras. The one on the rear is 8MP while the front-facing camera is .3MP. Video can be captured at HD 720p. Android 2.3.4 is installed as is Netflix right out of the box. 16GB of internal memory can be raised to as high as 48GB using a 32GB microSD card. The diamond cut edges bring a distinctive look to the unit, and the WiMax connectivity puts the 4G in the name of the phone.

Where Motorola seems to be having problems combining dual-core TI OMAP4 processors and LTE connectivity for Verizon, the PHOTON 4G's mixture of Tegra 2 and WiMax seems to be working fine, happily for Sprint customers. Those customers of the nation's third largest mobile carrier who favor Motorola over HTC and Samsung, can head over to their local Sprint store today and be able to show off their new Motorola PHOTON 4G to co-workers tomorrow.
