Motorola PHOTON 4G pre-order price slashed at Walmart, Wirefly
The Motorola PHOTON 4G release date was just officially announced for July 31st, but the dual-core 4G WiMAX handset is already up for pre-order for the pretty standard price of $199.99. Walmart and Wirefly, though, have already discounted the device. In Walmart the PHOTON 4G can be had for $159.99, or $40 less than the original price, while in Wirefly the price of the handset is slashed by $20.

You still need to sign a two-year agreement with Sprint and while that's not a huge price cut, it'll definitely lure even more buyers into getting this dual-core powerhouse. The phone runs Android on a 4.3-inch qHD display, all powered by a Tegra 2 chip clocked at 1GHz working in concert with 1GB of RAM. Will this make you line up for the first WiMAX device made by Moto?

I have to agree, these Motorola Android phones all come out with bugs, as do the other manufacturers. But the difference is, Motorola comes out and says nothing is wrong, while the other manufacturers send out updates to fix things. @Synack, you could be waiting forever for the Prime, we don't even know if that's an actual phone yet. It was a rumor created by one guy, There's no guarantee yet that Samsung is even making the next Nexus phone. My guess is, after the huge failure of the Nexus S 4g, Google will go back to HTC or give it to LG.
