Sprint is getting ready to apply a welcome price cut to the Motorola Photon 4G it’s been selling since August. This Android-powered smartphone launched being priced at $199.99 with a new two-year contract.
Starting on January 15, though, you’ll be able to get a Photon 4G from Sprint for just $99.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate). That’s according to the leaked info you can see below courtesy of SprintFeed. It’s certainly a good price for what’s still a plenty capable phone, however if you want to buy a Photon 4G you should probably do it at Amazon.
That’s because the well known third-party retailer has it right now for just $49.99 with the same two-year Sprint contract. Furthermore, there are no pesky mail-in rebates to fiddle with when buying from Amazon.
If you’re upgrading, Amazon’s price is $79.99, which is also very decent. If you’re interested in picking up a Photon 4G from Amazon, just go here.
The Motorola Photon 4G has a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540) touchscreen, a 1 GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, an 8 MP rear camera with 720p HD video recording, a VGA front-facing camera for video calls, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, and all the usual connectivity options.
