    any word when Sprint might come up with a 4G LTE phone which is also global, a la Razr Maxx? I bought a Photon for its world capabilities, but it does not have SVDO, or LTE. I'm considering buying a SGS3 but I don't wanna shell that kind of money out yet.

    LTE is not everywhere yet. 3G is still the king. Keep your Photon for now. I am not changing my Photon yet

    Yeah, that looks good, except the qHD display.

    I assume that's the same as the screen on the photon, which I'm happy with. But I wish it had jelly bean. Motorola is slow to update their sprint phones.

    I'm also really curious if this will work with the photon peripherals. The car dock is VERY roomy, and could accommodate a thicker phone.

    I wish the keyboard was portrait, like a blackberry (our my beloved pre) and I wish it had a beefier battery. But I may upgrade anyway.
