This phone looks macho due to its octagonal design (with macho specs as well).
Please make a proper GSM/UMTS (900mhz) version avialable and bring it to South Africa ASAP! Love the design of this phone!
OH...please add a radio! :-)
The Photon 4G has a beautiful 4.3 inch qHD display, a 1 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB onboard memory, WiMAX connectivity, and it's webtop ready. It's a world phone, and it's running Android 2.3 Gingerbread at release. It's got the same Blur you've all come to love, which Sprint execs lauded for its enterprise-friendly security features.
looks good.. but fat and heavy.. also no gprs, no edge and no 1080p support...
Wow. Please release this phone in dubai, moto.. And hook it up with du, with du mobile tv, and my money is yours.. I will surely buy this phone!!!
I think the moto photon is better than sgs2 or the htc sensation!!! Please release price and final specs.. Hope there will be hdmi adapter included in box :))
I hope this comes out in Europe. It has the right GSM and WCDMA bands (see spec sheet in link). But Motorola dont seem to like Europe, so I wont hold my breath. Pity. It looks so cool.
This phone is also GSM phone although it tied to Sprint, but can it use local sim card when travelling abroad? I heard Sprint doesn't lock GSM sim-slot in it GSM/CDMA phones, it's true?.
photon vs evo 3d
SMR (Sprint's restructuring of the Nextel frequencies) should be ready to actually do something late this year. It's possible we will see a push-to-talk solution for phones that support it, like the EVO 3D. No word on any SMR support for the Photon, but world capabilities will trump PTT for most folks.
Bluetooth has been a pain for Android since, well since forever. Having Bluetooth 3.0 support on the EVO 3D could be a deciding factor for folks who have trouble connecting Android phones to their car stereo.
They both look about the same size and weight. You won't notice .5 mm in your hands.
Even if you don't give a hoot about 3D, there's still the question of the Photon having a PenTile matrix display or not. Let's hope not.
Cameras are a wash until we see pictures and video from each. 1080p doesn't mean much if it's jittery and blurry. If the camera is going to be your deciding factor, wait for the reviews.
The Adreno 220 outperforms the Nvidia GeForce on paper. Nvidia supports developers of 3D games like no other. I give the edge to the Photon here, just because there will be (and already are) Tegra optimized games. And they rock.
16 GB storage on the Photon, 4 on the EVO 3D. Hello HTC, step that up will ya?
We don't know for sure that the EVO 3D doesn't have DDR2 RAM. We do know that Sprint and Motorola made sure that everyone knew the Photon does.
I found that using a keyboard and mouse made the Photon 4G much easier to navigate than using the phone's on screen keyboard . My first impressions were that the phone works well at browsing the web,sending emails and showing online videos while in the dock . The best part is that even when it's docked,the Photon is still free to make and take calls . (computerworld)
