Aaron takes a first look at the Motorola PHOTON 4G, Sprint's newest Android superphone.  Specs include a 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, a front-facing camera, kickstand for easy viewing of pictures and video, and Android 2.3 with the Motorola Applications Platform.  It's unique in that it's the first Sprint 4G device to offer global roaming capabilities via a SIM card slot, so those that travel internationally on a regular basis don't have to worry about switching phones prior to leaving.

The Motorola PHOTON 4G launches at Sprint on July 31 for $199.99.
