Sprint and Motorola Launching More than 10 Devices in 2011

ABC News Radio(NEW YORK) -- Sprint and Motorola are renewing their relationship in a deal that will see them launch a number of new Motorola devices together, according to a joint statement from the companies.

Sprint, along with its prepaid brands -- Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile USA -- plans on releasing more than 10 new wireless devices by the end of 2011.

“We are excited to be partnering with Sprint to announce a new portfolio of innovative, differentiated Android-based products that make the mobile experience better for people -- whether at home or at work,” said Sanjay Jha, chairman and chief executive officer, Motorola Mobility. “These devices showcase our deep insight into consumer needs and harness the power of Sprint’s networks.”

Sprint and Motorola launched two of the devices Thursday -- the Motorola Photon 4G and the Motorola Triumph.  The Photon is Motorola's first Sprint 4G device, while the Triumph is the first Virgin Mobile USA device by Motorola and will feature a touchscreen and two cameras.  

The two devices will be available to Sprint and Virgin Mobile USA customers this summer.

Recently unveiled devices include the Motorola Xoom -- a tablet computer -- and the Motorola XPRT smartphone.

Among other coming attractions are the  Motorola i412 phone, which will be available in late June; and the Motorola Titanium, the first Nextel Direct Connect smartphone built on the Android 2.1 operating system, debuting late summer.
