Sprint revealed today that the Motorola Photon 4G will be available starting July 31 for $199.99 with a two-year contract.

Introduced in early June, along with the Motorola Triumph for Virgin Mobile, the Photon 4G is Sprint's latest Android smartphone and the carrier's first device to feature Nvidia's Tegra 2 dual-core processor.

The Gingerbread device also offers world-roaming capabilities, 4G support, a 4.3-inch qHD touch screen, and a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture and a front-facing VGA camera for video calls.

Sprint Premier customers will get an opportunity to purchase the phone online three days in advance of general availability, while supplies last.
