Motorola Q Finally Launching Next Week

by Reads (6,794)

Over the last few months, it has been a regular occurrence for the hopes of potential Motorola Q buyers to be raised that this smartphone was finally going to be released, only to have these hopes dashed when this introduction was pushed back yet again.

Now is seems that these people’s long wait might finally be nearing its end. Motorola CEO Ed Zander has promised CNET that this Windows Mobile Smartphone will finally be launched next week.

Zander didn’t reveal which day next week the Q will hit the market, but a previous rumor indicated that it will be Monday, May 22.

Verizon Wireless and Motorola have scheduled a press event in New York City for that day. They haven’t given a reason, but this is almost certainly when a certain smartphone will be announced because, thanks to various leaks, it is clear this device will be first offered by Verizon Wireless.

More About the Motorola Q

Its maker claims that the Motorola Q will be “the world’s thinnest, lightest QWERTY phone”.

It will have a tablet design, with a 320-by-240-pixel screen above a backlit keyboard. In a slightly unusual move, this screen will be in landscape mode by default.

This device will run Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone, and therefore will support Microsoft’s push email system.

The Motorola Q won’t just be about email, though. It will be able to play music in a variety of formats and it will sport dual speakers.

A miniSD slot will offer additional Storage for music, as well as other types of files.

It will include a 1.3 megapixel camera and Bluetooth short-range wireless networking.

Motorola hasn’t given all the specifications on this device, but, according to a leaked description of this model, it will have 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of Flash ROM.
