Motorola Photon 4G

Last updated: Jun 9th, 2011.

Sprint and Motorola have teamed up to bring us the Motorola Photon 4G, the carrier's first international handset with Android. It's a 4.3 inch powerhouse with its dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and more.

The phone carries much in common with AT&T's Motorola Atrix 4G, and even gets the same Webtop connectivity that sees the Photon 4G transform into a powerful computing device when connected to a seperate dock accessory. Motorola has placed a custom user interface over the Android operating system that is enhanced with features perfect for enterprise use. A flip-out kickstand built into the Photon 4G makes its qHD display great for taking in video.
