Sprint and its prepaid brands of Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA will launch more than 10 new Motorola devices in 2011, including the newly unveiled Motorola PHOTON 4G, boasting Sprint 4G, Android 2.3, Sprint ID and worldphone capabilities.

"I am pleased to see our collaboration grow. Together we will enhance the customer experience by bringing innovative devices to market, such as the Motorola PHOTON 4G and Motorola TRIUMPH."
