So you love QWERTYs. We get that. Apparently, so does Sprint and Motorola, because last month they announced the Photon Q, which is probably the most powerful QWERTY slider on the market right now.

Hopefully you haven't already pre-ordered through Sprint, because Wirefly and Let's Talk just dropped the pre-order price by $50. That means you can get this keyboard-packing LTE slider for $150 instead of $200. That's not a bad savings for a phone that hasn't even been released yet.

Of course, if you're considering jumping to Sprint from another carrier, you may want to take advantage of the current "add a line, get a $100 AMEX giftcard" deal going on exclusively through The Now Network, instead.

    Why wouldn't you just go with Sprint directly if you're a new customer and get the $100 Amex card instead?

      That's only for new customers though. Plus there's tax involved, and things may get close. The Wirefly/LetsTalk deal is for upgrades too.

      Btw, I never get charged for activation - just call them if they do and ask to take it off, and they do every time.
