Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Motorola Photon 4G Forums Added
It seems that Motorola enjoyed the success of the Atrix and the Bionic, and went ahead with the release of their latest Tegra dual core equipped mobile device. The Photon 4G is the manufacturer’s latest response to the high demand for 4G enabled devices. The Photon is loaded with many of the same powerful specs that its competitor’s carry: 8 MP camera with HD capabilities, 16 GB of internal storage, 1 GB of RAM, and a huge 4.3″ 540×960 screen for a crisp and clear multimedia experience. Also, it seems that Motorola decided to include a kick stand on the device as well (wonder where they got that idea from). As it is customary with this particular manufacturer, the device is locked, very locked. This sets the perfect environment for our devs to bring ideas to the table to try and unlock it.
So, if you have had a chance to play with one or if you are thinking about the possibility of getting this device, be sure to drop by and read some of the experiences from others as well as catch up on some of the latest developments.
