Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE Sprint open

The Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE got a brief tease during Sprint's Q2 2012 earnings call earlier this morning, but now the handset has been made officially official, complete with its own press release. Now that the Photon Q 4G LTE has been announced, that means we've also got a full spec sheet for it. Here's the list:

  • 4.3-inch qHD (540x960) touchscreen with ColorBoost, which Motorola says will allow the phone's display to show richer and more vibrant colors than other devices
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 8-megapixel rear, "720p HD" front cameras
  • 1GB RAM, 8GB built-in storage
  • microSD slot
  • NFC
  • HDMI support
  • Sliding QWERTY keyboard
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • GSM roaming support
  • 3G/4G mobile hotspot for up to 8 devices
  • 1,785mAh battery
  • Motorola SmartActions
  • Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich

So when can you get your hands on one? That's still up in the air at this point, though Sprint does say that it'll share availability and pricing information "within the next few weeks." While the Photon Q 4G LTE's display resolution may not be as high as other smartphones on Sprint, I'm sure that QWERTY lovers that call the Now Network home are glad to see another device with a keyboard headed their way, especially since it supports Sprint's (expanding) 4G LTE network. You can find Sprint's full announcement of the Photon Q 4G LTE right here. Any of you Sprint folk thinking about picking one of these up?
