It’s essentially an open secret at this point that Verizon Wireless intends to introduce a black version of the Motorola Q, to supplement the silver one it has been offering for months. The only question at this point is when will happen.
According to Engadget, the newer version of this WM Smartphone will be available on Verizon’s web site on December 12, and in this carrier’s stores on January 12.
This same source says that, in addition to having a black casing, this new Q will have some software fixes and an improved battery life. It will also cost $50 more, which means it should cost about $250 with a two-year contract.
