Motorola PHOTON 4G Hands-On [Video]

If you happened to miss our last few posts you would have noticed we've been hanging out at the Motorola Event today in NYC. They announced some exciting new devices coming soon. A few of those are the Photon 4G, the Titanium, Triumph, and the XPRT. It was a busy day here in NYC but right now I'm here to show you the Photon 4G and its awesome kickstand. The Motorola Photon 4G has a unique diamond-like shape but under the hood it has all the features you'd want and love in an android phone.

Motorola TRIUMPH Announced

What lies beneath is the first really fantastic Android device offered by Motorola for Virgin Mobile. In fact it's the first Motorola device EVER offered on the carrier, so your ears should be perking up if you're a fan of the big white-teeth grin, if you know what I mean. Virgin Mobile is known for its flexibility, and the TRIUMPH is no exception, coming in on a no contract plan. The specs on this device certainly don't win it any big favors for those looking for the race-winners, but there certainly are some surprises waiting for you inside.

Motorola TITANIUM Announced

What follows is a mightily little device that makes up what it lacks in processor speed and Android up-to-datedness with a rather strong punch in the hardware. What this phone represents is the successor to the Motorola i1, this little monster coming out as an iDEN device, surprisingly stocked with the now-several-gen-old Android 2.1 Eclair, and a full QUERTY keyboard below a 3.1-inch touchscreen display. But why is this phone called the TITANIUM? Why it's because it meets Military Specification 810G for dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperature and low temperature of course!

Motorola XPRT Announced, Gigantic Battery in Tow

You may remember from a few months ago a phone by the name of DROID Pro. This was an Android phone that essentially everyone familiar with the situation called the BlackBerry killer. In fact our pal Vince over on SlashGear did a major review of the device as it was back then compared directly to the BlackBerry Torch. Such distinct insides with such similar chassis. Now there's a new telephone on the way by the name of Motorola XPRT. You'll notice that it looks QUITE similar to the DROID Pro, which was also a Motorola device, but eyes will deceive: this is indeed a new device.

Motorola PHOTON 4G Announced

This is the powerhouse that eclipses Motorola's last big gun, that being the ATRIX 4G. With a name like PHOTON it certainly better be doing some eclipsing, and it will with a selection of Motorola factory-made accessories, a rather unique diamond-shaped form factor, dual cameras, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and a 1GHz Tegra 2 dual-core processor from NVIDIA. Does that mean I'll be able to play all my favorite Tegra Zone apps? Why yes, that is what that means. While this phone isn't quite the first to the market with any one of these specs alone, together this is a whallop of a dual-core "4G" device to be sure.

Motorola XPRT Brings Droid Pro Hardware to the World for Non-Verizon Lovers

Starting today Motorola's XPRT (better known as the Droid Pro on Verizon) is available for those not wanting to head out with big red. The XPRT is aimed at professional users, with it's portrait qwerty keyboard, reminiscent of another popular smartphone. The XPRT is only the second Motorola Android phone to make it to the carriers in yellow, after the Motorola i1, which featured push-to-talk. If you are looking for a business-centric Android phone and you've got a taste for BlackBerry-looking hardware, you can pick up the XPRT for $399.99 or $129.99 with a new 2-year contract.
