It’s no secret that Sprint will soon begin offering the Motorola Q; this carrier’s president promised it would do so back in August. But little new information on this has emerged since then.
That changed today, when Engadget was leaked some pictures of the Sprint version of this Windows Mobile Smartphone showing that it will have a black casing, not the silver one currently being offered by Verizon Wireless.
Aside from this change, though, it appears that Sprint’s model will essentially be identical to the one currently available.

As for when Sprint will launch the Q, no one knows aside from "soon".
Back in Black
Sprint won’t be the first carrier to offer this Motorola device with a black casing, though it will be the first in the U.S..
Both Bell Canada and Telus have been offering the black Q for several weeks.
More About the Motorola Q
The Motorola Q has a tablet design, with a 320-by-240-pixel screen above a backlit QWERTY keyboard.
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.
A miniSD slot offers additional storage for music, as well as other types of files.
So far, the only versions of this smartphone to be released run on CDMA networks, and also support the 3G standard EV-DO.
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.
