AT&T launched the Motorola Atrix 2 with very little fanfare, slotting it in with a set of low-end Android smartphones on October 11th. However, the Atrix 2 is the successor to the venerable Atrix 4G and as such at least bears the name of a top-of-the-line Android phone. That name is belied by middle-of-the-road specs and a price point — $99 on-contract — that implies that neither Motorola nor AT&T think of the phone as a hero device.

Description

The Photon 4G is Motorola's first 4G WiMAX phone for Sprint and it features Android 2.3 with a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. The Photon 4G also features international GSM capabilities, dual cameras, a 4.3-inch high quality HD display, and a kickstand for hands-free viewing.
