It isn’t official yet, but there’s some very strong evidence that the Motorola Q will be launched in just a few weeks.
Verizon Wireless and Motorola have scheduled a press event in New York City for May 22. They haven’t given a reason, but this is almost certainly when a certain Windows Mobile Smartphone will be announced.
When Brighthand‘s Brian Beeler met with Motorola representatives last month, he was told that the Q would hit the market in the near future.
And, thanks to various leaks, it is clear it will be 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.
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.
In a slightly unusual move, it will have a 320-by-240-pixel (QVGA) that is in landscape mode by default.
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.
