C Spire Wireless is the latest carrier in the U.S. to bring the next generation of wireless technology to its subscribers. Along with the 4G LTE network deployment, several new high-profile Android phones have been introduced to run on the carrier’s high-speed Internet network.
We learnt back in June that C Spire has enlisted the Samsung Galaxy S3 to help bring some excitement to its Android lineup, now the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE is joining the list of 4G-enabled device that C Spire will carry. There will also be a 4G LTE USB modem for those interested.
While the Galaxy S3 isn’t up for grab yet, you can make a reservation of some sort by pre-registering yourself. We’re not sure how much the phone cost is at the time of this writing, but if we find out, we’ll surely run an update this article. As for the Photon Q 4G LTE, the phone is already on sale for $200; and it will come with the obligatory two-year contract.
In case you didn’t know, the Photon Q 4G LTE packs some serious specs under the hood. The phone boasts a 4.3-inch ColorBoost display (540 x 960), a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, a full slideout keyboard, and Ice Cream Sandwich.
Seeing that the 4G network has just gone live, the coverage area is still pretty limited. As of now, it’s only available in McComb and Greenville in Mississippi. Other markets to follow include Meridian, Brookhaven, Tupelo, and six NE Mississippi communities in Lee and Prentiss counties. Those living in Hattiesburg and Petal and Yazoo city can also expect to see 4G bars on their phones in the near future.
Any C Spire subscribers out there excited to hear about the coming of 4G?
