Sprint is updating their cell lineup with 10+ Motorola phones throughout 2011 including the Photon 4G, XPRT, and the Triumph across their main networks as well as their pre-paid partners. The 10 new Motorola devices will be unveiled to Sprint, Boost Mobile, and Virgin Mobile USA customers which will bring a load of up to date devices to the networks.
The Photon is Sprint’s first Motorola 4G smartphone with a dual core Tegra 2 processor to even out the competition with the other providers such as AT&T with the Atrix, and Verizon with the Droid X2 both running Tegra 2 processors. Although the timing of the Photon’s arrival isn’t exactly best, due to the upcoming release of the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint, hopefully the device will hold its own and keep up the competition in the markets.
The Motorola Triumph is the first Motorola Android smartphone to hit Virgin Mobile and is a stepping stone for Virgin Mobile to receive more high-end Androids this year. The Triumph is roughly the same specifications as the Galaxy S line, running a 1Ghz processor with a 5MP rear facing camera as well as a VGA front facing camera. The new mobile device running a 4” screen will be available something this July on www.virginmobileusa.com and retail outlets throughout the nation.
