Other features added to the Photon 4G include support for Motorola's LapDock accessory and webtop mode; improved in-car audio quality; improved performance of the panorama shooting mode; and the introduction of international roaming 3G UMTS hotspot functionality for a single Wi-Fi device. Instructions for installing the update are available from Motorola's suport site.
