    Motorola Photon announced for Sprint, ships with unlocked boatloader?


    Today Sprint has announced a new high end Motorola android phoned dubbed the Motorola Photon. This new Gingerbread beast is packed with great hardware including: dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of ram, 4.3" qHD (Quarter High Definition) display screen, dual cameras (8mp, dual LED back), 16mb onboard memory and supports up to a 32gb sd card.

    No doubt this phone will be a solid contender against the HTC EVO 3D, but there is something else that just might give it the edge. According to a recent post at Android Central the Motorola Photon will ship with an unlocked boot-loader.

    If this is true, it's a very good sign for things to come!

    ** Update, AndroidandMe has confirmed the same good news.


    ** Update #2
    Here's the official word:

    "As we've previously communicated, it is our intention to include the unlockable/relockable bootloader in software releases starting in late 2011, where operator and channel partners will allow it. However, this feature is not included in the software found on PHOTON 4G."

    Wow..

    Too bad Sprint sucks in my area. Its Verizon or AT&T for me. If this really is unlocked and the one on Verizon is locked...I dont know what to say...

    Man, I wonder how Sprint coverage is in my area. This and HTC Evo 3D are very impressive.

    I would rather go without a cell phone than go with Sprint.

    You could easily say that Verizon is the muscle behind locking their phones bootloaders.

    Also, Sprint sucks for me too. Oh well.

    step in the right direction MOTO now unlock the remainder of your devices.. then you will get the respect back from community.
