Sprint, Motorola to Hold June Press Event; Might Intro Photon 4G
Both Sprint and Motorola are holding an “exclusive luncheon” event this coming June 9 at The Metropolitan Pavilion in New York. The announcement on Sprint says that there will be demos on the latest collaborative handiwork of Sprint and Motorola.
News sources are guessing that the event will spotlight the Motorola Titanium and/or the Motorola XPRT, both Android smartphones built for business and enterprise use. Several sources also speculate that the press event may also see the Motorola Photon 4G being launched.
Reliable sources have confirmed to us that Sprint indeed will be having an Android phone equipped with NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 superchip. And, there have been talks about the phone’s having almost the same features of the Motorola Atrix 4G and the looks of the HTC EVO 4G.
Our sources recently relayed to us that the phone will be debuted as the Motorola Photon 4G (MB855). Sprint is reported to be the official carrier. Photon 4G already earned Wi-Fi certification last month. Sources say the Photon’s display will be a 4.3-inch qHD display. It’s also expected to ride on 4G, so you can look forward to high-speed connectivity for this upcoming gadget.
Recent reports say that Motorola Photon 4G will run on the firmer Android 2.3 Gingerbread rather than on the softer Android 2.2 Froyo, as has been reported earlier.
No confirmation has been circulated yet from either Sprint or Motorola as to when Photons will start hitting the market, but rumors have been spreading that the time frame is some time this June or July.
Tech sites monitoring the news about Photon 4G have yet to find FCC documents regarding the phone, but this does not mean Sprint is not ready to release the phone into the US market. This will be Sprint’s first-ever Android phone to sport a Tegra 2. T-Mobile already has the G2x, AT&T the Atrix 4G, and Verizon the Droid X2. With Photon 4G, Sprint will be officially joining the superchips party.
Sprint was set to bring out their version of the Motorola Atrix 4G last March, but decided to delay it. According to reports, the delay was necessary as Sprint found it a better a idea to tweak the Motorola Atrix’s design further. The result? The upcoming Motorola Photon 4G.
With Sprint joining the other carriers in the superchips party with the Motorola Photon 4G, do you think there will be a change in party rules?
