Motorola Photon 4G

Sprint just dropped word that the long-awaited Motorola Photon 4G — the first Wimax device from Moto — will be available on July 31 for $199 on contract. As you’ll recall from our hands-on with it in June, it’s a 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass-sporting, 8MP-shooting, 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2-processing, Gingerbread world phone, with Sprint ID thrown in to boot.

More specs, straight from the source:

  • Dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor with each core running at 1GHz and 1GB of RAM
  • Large 4.3-inch touchscreen with qHD (Quarter High Definition) display
  • Dual cameras – 8-megapixel, dual-LED flash camera with front-facing webcam and VGA front-facing camera for video chat
  • Android Market™ for access to more than 200,000 useful applications, widgets and games available for download to customize the experience
  • 16GB of onboard memory, support for up to 32GB SD Card, for a total of up to 48GB
  • Worldphone capabilities to access emails, calendars and news from anywhere around the globe
  • 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability, supporting up to eight devices on the Sprint 3G or 4G networks.
  • Supports critical IT device policies commonly requested by enterprises and governmental entities, including integration ease, cost-of-management and data security concerns

And because we know some of you are going to ask, no, it’s not supposed to ship with an unlocked bootloader. Remember that Motorola said it’d get into the unlocking thing in late-2011. July is mid-2011. So let’s all wait a couple more months before we go through this with every new Moto phone that’s announced, m’kay?

That said, we’re plenty excited to see a phone with this much depth and power on Sprint. What about y’all?
