Motorola Photon 4G and Motorola Triumph set to release on Sprint
Sprint plans to sell the Motorola Photon 4G this summer. The Motorola will also release the Triumph on Sprint’s Virgin Mobile pre-paid network. No prices were given, but both phones are due out this summer.
The Photon 4G is a powerful device. It has a 1-gigahertz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 16-gigabytes of storage with HDMI capabilities allowing users to connect the device to HDTVs. The phone will also include an 8-megapixel camera with a front VGA camera as well.The Photon 4G supports the LapDoc accessory and will support Motorola’s WebTop when connected to a docking station, like the Atrix on AT&T’s network.
Photon looks are a kind of unique and chopped off the corners making the phone into sort of an octagon. This makes it look a little smoother but still have that futuristic, angular look. It felt light, but sturdy, and not like a cheap toy. The back is rubberized, which should help keep you from dropping the dang thing. It’s got a dedicated camera button.
Motorola hopes this phone catches on with not only regular customers, but businesses as well. The launch of the Photon 4G will also help Sprint in its fight to stay relevant in the smartphone business. The launch of the latest iPhones have always stolen Sprint’s summer handset launches. This year, though, Apple won’t release a new device until possibly September, giving Sprint a window of opportunity they cannot pass up.
