Motorola's cool new QWERTY, the Photon Q 4G LTE (pictures)
For $199.99 the Motorola Photon Q carries the Droid 4's superb physical keyboard over to Sprint. The QWERTY slider also boasts LTE support, a fast 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a bright 4.3-inch display.
Big, bright, and colorful
The Photon Q 4G LTE has a 4.3-inch qHD LCD that uses what Motorola calls ColorBoost technology. The result is extra brightness and colors that pop almost like an AMOLED screen.
The Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE's primary life purpose is to provide an awesome physical typing experience and it succeeds. The phone's keyboard layout is virtually identical to that of the Motorola Droid 4, another excellent QWERTY made by Moto. There are five rows, including a dedicated number row, a wide spacebar, plus bright LED backlighting.
On the left side of the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE are ports for Micro-USB and HDMI connections. The phone is also compatible with an optional HD Dock accessory to charge and output video content to HDTVs simultaneously.
