The Motorola Photon 4G is here, and we got a nice up-close look at it today in New York City. CEOs of Sprint and Motorola Mobility, Dan Hesse and Sanjay Jha respectively, took the opportunity to reiterate their companies' commitment to each other, promising ten new devices within the next year.
The Photon 4G has a beautiful 4.3 inch qHD display, a 1 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB onboard memory, WiMAX connectivity, and it's webtop ready. It's a world phone, and it's running Android 2.3 Gingerbread at release. It's got the same Blur you've all come to love, which Sprint execs lauded for its enterprise-friendly security features.
And contain your excitement: Motorola reps have said that it does NOT, I repeat does NOT have a locked bootloader. Is Motorola reconciling with the developer community? EDIT: Looks like some of the reps at today's event weren't on the same page as Motorola, as the company has backtracked and said that the Photon does indeed come with a locked bootloader. Bummer. Check the pics and the video after the break.
