I’ve been keeping my eye on the new Sprint “Android” offerings since both Sprint and HP Palm have been a bit quiet on the slow motion release of the HP Palm Pre 3. The recent news from Sprint is that it will have the Motorola Photon 4G running Gingerbread 2.3 – the latest Android release. The Photon is similar in function to ATT’s Atrix although Sprint’s version will have a little larger screen and use a docking feature with TV, computer monitor and keyboard RATHER than the cool laptop-like docking station. Let’s say I’m thinking about a new phone, but not in a rush … although playing with my daughter’s new EVO 4G does make me a bit more anxious. (another temptation is the new HP Touchpad soon to be released … but not sure it is a ‘need’ items if one has a full featured smarphone and regularly uses a laptop?)
The Motorola Photon 4G features a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 16GB of storage, front-facing VGA camera, rear-facing 8-megapixel camera with full 1080p HD video capture support, 4G WiMAX, 16 Gb of internal memory , external up to 32 Gb and GSM worldphone.
The Motorola Photon will be available this Summer via Sprint, price and date, still unknown.
