Earlier this year, while speaking at the Bank Of America/Merill Lynch technology summit, Motorola Mobility CEO, Sanjay Jha kept eluding to the fact that they would be working with Sprint. A couple of weeks later in New York City Sanjay Jha stood alongside Sprint CEO Dan Hesse to introduce the Motorola Photon 4G and the Motorola Triumph headed to Sprint and Virgin Mobile respectively.
Both Motorola and Sprint confirmed that they have a number of devices in their collective portfolio to bring to Sprint and their prepaid brands this year. This photo obtained earlier today by Popherald.com clearly shows a new qwerty form factor handset sporting both Motorola and Sprint logos.
According to Pop Herald’s source this portrait qwerty device will come out of the box running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It’s also rumored to have 4G/Wimax connectivity. Sprint’s WiMax 4G service currently offers the best value proposition. In markets where customers have access to Sprint’s 4G/Wimax on an unlimited plan it is truly unlimited with no cap. Sprint 3G will throttle after 5gb.
There is no word on the phones name, cost or other features. Stay tuned as this one looks like a mid-range winner.
