Motorola Photon 4G now available for pre-order at Walmart; just $159.99

Are you looking to save $40 on that Motorola Photon 4G you’ve been eying since last month? Well, Walmart has your back. The retail giant is currently letting people pre-order Sprint’s Photon 4G for the relatively low price of $159.99 with a 2-year contract. You can expect Walmart to ship the device any day after the official launch date on July 31th.

In case you’re not sure if the Photon 4G is the ‘droid you’re looking for, you can read our comparison between Motorola’s phone and the HTC EVO 3D. Spoiler alert: They’re both awesome. You should also take a look at the spec sheet below. Maybe that’ll convince you:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 4.3-inch qHD display (540 x 960)
  • 16GB of onboard memory (support for up to 32GB SD Card)
  • 8 MP rear-facing camera / VGA front-facing camera
  • 4G WiMAX capable

Finally, if you need more convincing, you can watch this video of the Motorola Photon 4G in all its CGI glory. If none of this convinces you to buy a Photon 4G, you have no soul. Or maybe your heart belongs to another superphone, like the HTC EVO 3D or the Samsung Galaxy S II.

      Hate to burst your bubble but how is verizon releasing phones every month did I miss something in these last 90 days??? Whatever has the verizon branding that was released within the last 6months are actually device with the same specs as my past evo 4g I brought in June 2010. Look at all those OVERPRICED UNDERSPECED DEVICES and really ask yourself WHO’S RIPPING WHO OFF???VERIZON IS A JOKE AT BEST REGARDLESS OF THIS LTE NETWORK all it does is DRAIN THE LIFE OUT OF YOUR BATTERY INSIDE OF 3 TO 4 HRS. You as well as the rest of the verizon customers are totally living in a FANTASY LAND…ONE DAY YOU WILL WAKE UP

    Hmm…the walmart website is saying that its actually 179.99 not 159.99. So where did the writer of this article get 159.99?
