We've been talking about Sprint's upcoming LTE QWERTY, the Motorola Photon Q, for a few weeks now, and it's officially here. As of today, you can walk into a Sprint store and buy this "green machine with the power of Android" for the low, low price of $200 with a two-year agreement.


Need a refresher on specs? No problem.

  • 4.3" ColorBoost display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor (presumably Snapdragon S4)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 8MP 1080p rear shooter, 720p front-facing camera
  • HDMI out
  • NFC
  • Full QWERTY slider
  • LTE, global ready
  • Android 4.0.4

Sure, it's nothing to get overly-excited about, but if you're a fan of QWERTYs, the Photon Q is probably the best that you can buy right now.


Of course, don't forget that if you order any new smartphone through Sprint's website and add a new line of service, they'll hook you up with a $100 American Express gift card. If you have no plans to add a new line, and are patient enough to wait just a few more days to get your new smartphone, you can still save a few bones through Wirefly, which has the device for $150.

Otherwise, march yourself to the nearest Sprint store and demand that they sell you a Photon Q. They'll be impressed with your commanding spirit, and you'll get a new smartphone. That's a win for everyone.
