Motorola Photon 4G Gets Big Price Cut to $99 at 'The Shack'

Radio Shack has halved the price of the Motorola Photon 4G to just $99 with a two-year Sprint contract.

Sprint only launched its latest 4G smartphone, the Motorola Photon 4G, a week ago for $199.99 (with a two-year contract), but the price has already been cut.

Radio Shack is now offering the Photon 4G for just $99.99 with a new two-year Sprint contract. In fact, if you order the Photon 4G now, Radio Shack will even ship it to you via FedEx for free.

The 5.57-ounce Motorola Photon 4G comes packed with an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of on-board storage. The Photon runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), along with Motorola's MotoBlur service, and has an attractive 4.3-inch qHD display. Design-wise, the phone is a little different from most phones--it's got cut-off corners, which gives it a slightly octagonal shape--though it still has the standard Android touch buttons, the regular ports and jacks, and a dedicated camera button. In PCWorld's review of the Photon 4G, our reviewers called the phone the best Motorola phone they've seen this year. According to our reviewers, the Tegra 2 processor works extremely well in conjunction with Sprint's 4G network.

In other words, the Photon 4G is one of the best phones of the summer--and now you can get it for just $100. Go check it out at Radio Shack.
