Motorola Q Not Cancelled, Just Really Late

Motorola Q

A report from Engadget citing a “highly reliable source” claims the Motorola Q is definitely coming to market but not until April. And that’s just the CDMA version slated for Verizon.

There are no further details in their report about the GSM version, but Engadget swears that model is still going to be produced.

We know this is going to hurt, but we’ve just learned from a highly reliable source that Motorola won’t be delivering their new Q Smartphone to Verizon Wireless until sometime in early April. Not sure what the speficic hold up is, but we do know that Moto has been steadily improving the Q’s keyboard and software — oh, and we can’t forget that Verizon does have a reputation for running phones through the wringer before carrying them. Disappointing news for all the Q fans out there, but a little delay is better than putting a handset out there that isn’t quite ready for primetime, right?

Assuming the April release date is true, that would make the Motorola Q 3-4 months later than announced by Motorola CEO Ed Zander. The big question is whether or not the market will wait with devices like the Treo 700w, PPC-6700 and new entries from HP and Palm expected out in March.
