Yea, you would think if it were going to drop in July it would actually have the date by now.

FWIW, I was in a Sprint store yesterday (7/5/11) and the sales guy said he had UNofficially heard that the Photon would be available on 7/18 - one day before the VirginMobile Moto Triumph. As I said this is NOT an offiical date but seems to be the rumor within Sprint's own ranks. I put my name on a list and they said they'd call me when they're ready to take an order.

Sprint didn't give the release date for the EVo3D two weeks before the release, so there is still some time for an official announcement.

I wouldn't get discourage just yet.

Seeing as Sprint doesn't seem to like mid-week releases, I am betting the release is going sometime around the 29th to the 31st.

I will tell you this, I got the Evo 3D and as a phone its been a huge disappointment, difficult to hear people sometimes, hoping the motorola radio and call quality is better, and motorola has always offered great signal and call quality, so if it is the 18th, that would be awesome!

That early? Wow, I hate to say I hope he's wrong. That's way sooner than I anticipated and might not have the cash set aside that I would've liked to have by then.

At the same time, I just couldn't see that happening, considering no official release date has been announced and they haven't really done any marketing for the release.

i dont think Sprint is a big fan of advertising before a device is released (ala nexus ,evo shift,conquer moto XPRT) I peronally think it is a real possibilty that this phone releases somewhere between july 18 -july 24. I dont know any "inside scoop " just kinda how i see this all going down. Also if i might add..... the samsung galaxy s2 has been rumored to be out sometime in july and i havent even heard of a official release of the phone from sprint. iknow , i know we have leaks of the phone bieng named the Samsung Within ...but it still has not been OFICIALLY announced by Sprint or any other company in the states for that matter. Basiclly just hurry up and come to me Photon ! before i change my mind and fall in love with another phone! A Whorre i am lol

Well you are saying "somewhere between july 18 -july 24." and someone else mentioned July 17, which makes sense since Sprint employees need to be trained on the features of the new phone (usually a day before) so both statements make sense.

As for you drex not having the money. its nothing a simple bank robbery can't handle. I plan on doing Chase, but hear Bank of America is easy too.

Im using Go Launcher and really like it so far. There were some widgets I miss a bit from Sense but overall its a big improvement over sense since it constantly crashes and reboots on me. I didnt notice any difference with battery life.

Since the fcc filing was made, if it's anything like the evo 3d release, we're looking at the last week of july, which goes in line with the joint release reports with the triumph and another phone I can't remember.

Since updating my Evo to Gingerbread it has become a huge p.o.s.! When I bought it from Best Buy they were just starting their Buy Back program & enrolled me free of charge. I plan on testing that program out as soon as the Photon is released (hopefully this month). If I upgrade within 6 months of the purchase date I get 1/2 of the retail price to put towards a new phone (Photon). I'm realllllllly hoping this is all they make it out to be.

I like the fact that this phone has an extra mic for noise cancellation, every high end phone should have that, makes a huge difference with call clarity

The 25th is a Monday and the last week of the months, so it's all starting to make sense. I just ordered my screen protection for my photon.

While to my knowledge it's never been confirmed, there were people who were saying that the first batch of EVOs did not have Gorilla Glass. When did you get yours?

I don't have a first batch EVO, but the EVO is listed at the gorilla glass makers web site. Gorilla glass can be easily scratched by sand anyway and I live by the beach.

Define faster.

The Tegra2 does well in benchmarks, but the Snapdragon eats up 1080P like candy while the Tegra2 chokes.

In real use, the differences will be small, but each phone will have its niche areas where they are flat out superior to the competition.

I don't meant to go off topic but am I the only one who sees no point in watching HD movies or clips on a cell phone? I know that was the big push with the Evo when it came out, but I just don't get the point on a cell phone. So I guess in the end having a phone that doesn't play 1080p video well just isn't a big deal to me.

I hear ya. I mean, unless you are hooked up to a charging source how could one watch an entire movie and not worry about having any battery for actual phone/text use for the rest of the day. And if you are somewhere that there is a charging source (home/work) then most would watch on a computer/ipad etc. The only use I see for it is in a car while plugged into the car charger or on a plane maybe but then your battery will be dead when you land. Like Burgertime, its not a big deal to me.

I watch movies on my phone during flights pretty regularly and bring some kinda pocket charger with me for that exact reason. I'm going to get a tablet for that reason when I'm flying to Korea this winter.

I'm curious to know where this July 22nd date came from as well....especially since we don't even have a price yet.

Yeah, the 22nd is a little odd considering no price has been announced and there is usually a 2-3 week lead up of marketing at least on the internet. I'd love the 22nd to be the date for my own personal needs, but I'm doubtful that's going to be the date.

They are spending so much money promoting the evo 3d, I would not be surprised if they just release the Photon with no Fan fair at all.

I wouldn't mind that, but there is an opportunity to get the business market with this phone.

I can't find an off contract price for the Photon but the Evo 3D is $199 w/ contract & $549 without. I'd guess the Photon is going to be about the same, especially since it's being called a competitor.

This is very exciting news! When I bought the Evo, Best Buy enrolled me in the Buy Back program so this will be a test of how worthwhile that program really is.
