Increasing Compatibility of Sprint and Android
The news circulating around is that Sprint is currently testing one of the versions of Apple’s iPhone for its network. Sources of the Apple-centric blog 9to5Mac, say that the physical appearance of this phone is very much similar to the present iPhone 4S. As per the news posted on the blog on June 8, it looks like Apple has (in late 2010) ordered Sprint-Compatible cell towers – for usage on their campus and for testing. For the past few months the silence of the Sprint executives about the impending iPhone is noticeable.
Currently Sprint offers a line of 4G smartphones; these phones have some real unique aesthetic and features. On June 9 in a big event in New York City, the company introduced two new Android phones: the Motorola Photon 4G, this is a touch-screen device with a dual-core processor and Android 2.3, and the other is a Motorola Triumph, an Android 2.2 device for Virgin Mobile. Both the devices are to be made available in the market this summer.
Motorola Photon 4G is the first dual-core smartphone from Sprint. It has special features, a big 4.3-inch screen and a dominantly powerful 8-megapixel rear camera. Photon users can access and create content on large screen, via a Webtop application and a special smartphone dock. This Android device also has special features like a kickstand for hands-free viewing; this is good for the users who are in the habit of watching movies and television while moving around.
