Bell Canada is now offering the Motorola Q, a Windows Mobile Smartphone with a built-in keyboard and EV-DO support.
Until now, this model has come only in silver. The new version, though, has a black casing.
Customers may purchase the Motorola Q from Bell Canada’s web site for $149.95 CAN when activating a voice plan and minimum $60 CAN email and Internet data feature package on a 3-year agreement.
This is not the first Canadian carrier to offer this smartphone. It has been available from Telus for some time.

This smartphone supports the push email system Microsoft released earlier this year. It can view Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Adobe Acrobat files that come in as attachments.
It isn’t just about email, though. It is able to play music in a variety of formats and sports dual speakers.
In a slightly unusual move, the Motorola Q has a 2.4-inch, 320-by-240-pixel (QVGA) that is in landscape mode by default.
A miniSD slot offers additional storage for music, as well as other types of files.
Naturally, this smartphone runs on Bell Canada’s CDMA network, and it also use this carrier’s high-speed EV-DO network.
It includes a 1.3 megapixel camera and Bluetooth short-range wireless networking.
The Motorola Q runs Windows Mobile 5 and has 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of Flash ROM.
