  • Motorola has developed several products that would work well with the Photon 4G, including a wireless keyboard ($69.99) and additional battery options ($49.99). But the two that Motorola and Sprint want consumers to know about the most are the HD Station ($99.99) and the Vehicle Navigation Dock ($59.99).

    (For the full review, check it out here on Between the Lines.)

  • The Photon is also Sprint's first international 4G device with CDMA and WiMax connectivity. But when it is a world phone, it roams on GSM. Motorola has designed the device so that users will not have to change the SIM card, and it is really hard to get at under the back hood, so hopefully that's never necessary.
