    So Moto is releasing another QWERTY phone, the Photon Q Motorola PHOTON Q specs

    It's meant for Sprint, but aside from that it's pretty much the same as the D4 but has ICS, a slightly faster processor, 4.3 inch screen, and will have an unlockable bootloader Motorola PHOTON

    Only drawback of the Photon is that the SIM card is nonremoveable but I've never had the need to remove it.

    Comparison between Photon Q and the D4 http://www.phonearena.com/phones/compare/Motorola-PHOTON-Q-4G,Motorola-DROID-4/phones/7253,6431

    The specs are not a big leap above the D4, but the unlockable bootloader makes me jealous. What do you guys think about it?

    I read it has a non-removable SIM card, so don't jump up and down just yet.

    Nice phone. Too bad that Sprint sucks. Also, SIM card not being removable is a big no-go.

    I am quite happy with the Droid 4. The slighter faster processor or the 4.3 inch screen doesn't really bother me. Now I wouldn't mind a unlocked bootloader.
