by Reads (6,482)

The Voq Smartphone from Sierra Wireless can now be purchased for the bargain-basement price of $165.

This device was discontinued a few months ago after very poor sales.

It is now being offered on the Woot web site for $160 plus $5 s/h. It originally sold for around $500.

More About the Voq

The Voq runs Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 for Smartphone. It features both a phone keypad and unique flip-open QWERTY thumbpad.

This device uses a 200 MHz Intel PXA262 XScale processor. It includes 32 MB of RAM, of which 16 MB is available to the user to run applications. It also has 48 MB of Flash memory, of which 20 MB is available to store data and software.

It also has an SD/MMC slot for removable memory cards, allowing even more applications and files to be stored.

The Voq has a 2.2-inch, 220-by-176-pixel screen and a joystick for user input, not a touch screen.

Users are able to access email and the Web, send instant messages, make phone calls, play games, and run other types of applications.

This is tri-band world phone, supporting global GSM voice networks and GPRS data networks.

The version of the Voq being sold by Woot is unlocked, so it can be used with any GSM/GPRS carrier.
