Sprint posts full video of the Motorola PHOTON 4G announcement
Sprint and Motorola have come together for a promising partnership and just yesterday everyone could look at the first fruit it bore – the dual-core Motorola PHOTON 4G. The PHOTON 4G is a 4.3-inch handset with qHD resolution, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and the latest of Gingerbread spiced up with Motoblur, but it could also be used on a GSM network and features Sprint's 4G WiMAX network.
Sprint has traditionally offered a strong Android portfolio, and the company's VP of product development and operations, Fared Adib, confirmed that with hard numbers: half of Sprint's phone sales are smartphones, while 70% of those smartphones are running Android. The Photon 4G brings Sprint on par with what other carriers have to offer in the dual-core space. One can't help but notice the similarity between AT&T's Motorola Atrix 4G and the PHOTON 4G. But the latter differs with some neat little additions. Check out the full video below where both Sprint and Motorola elaborate on the handset's design and functions pointing out its corporate appeal, but if that's not enough you could always take a look at our Photon 4G hands-on.
