It doesn’t look like there are many strings with rebates that never come or debit cards, as you can order it online for about $100 when you sign up for a new, two-year Sprint account. It will work with the $69.99 Everything plan on Sprint, too. Existing customers trying to upgrade will have to pay the $199 for the handset.
While we weren’t completely blown away by the Motorola Photon 4G in our review, it’s definitely a powerful handset with the Tegra 2 processor, 4.3-inch screen and an 8-megapixel camera. Blake summed it up by saying:
The Photon 4G is a nice phone with a great feature set, this much is true. That said, Motorola fails to genuinely impress more and more. I’m not saying I’m thouroughly disappointed with the Photon 4G in the least bit but such great hardware should have at least some decent software to back it up. Motoblur has been refined over and over and is more usable than ever but that still doesn’t make for a great experience.
So if you don’t mind MotoBlur, give this thing a shot.
