The Photon 4G is a touchscreen smartphone from the Motorola company. Functioning as a direct competitor to other leading units from Apple, Blackberry and HTC, this model runs the Android 2.3 (a.k.a. "Gingerbread") operating system and is fitted with a 4.3-inch TFT LCD display. Advertising "4G" wireless internet capabilities, Motorola claims that the Photon performs markedly faster than 3G counterparts when processing data-intensive operations. The inclusion of Adobe's Flash Player will appeal to users who frequently visit Flash-based websites and video players, a feature that is noticeably lacking in Apple's popular iPhone product. The Photon also features an 8-megapixel digital camera with a dual LED flash and digital zoom, paired with a number of image editing tools that include cropping, rotation, geotagging and more. Virtually all leading digital audio formats are supported within the phone's music player, alongside an FM transmitter for on-the-go radio tuning. 720p HD video capture is available with full 1080p playback, with an additional front-facing webcam included for self-portraits and videoconferencing needs. In addition, a host of native applications are offered that aim to benefit web browsing and social networking needs, including Google contacts, calendar and Gmail, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and LinkedIn.
