Verizon got the latest Motorola Q music 9m smartphone. Complete with Windows 6, EV-DO support, a 1.3 megapixel camera, miniSD card support (up to 32 GB), a 2.5mm headphone jack and a sleek design, the Q 9m is poised to be another big seller from Motorola. The Motorola Q 9m will set you back $300.
Gizmodo claims the Q 9M isn’t all it’s cracked up to be: “I just got my hands on the first Moto Q9m, and after a couple of hours, I’m ready to send it right back. Seriously, if you buy this phone, you are dumb… Last and least, Motorola is at fault for this trainwreck. It’s not a bad looking phone, but the red-and-black motif and Verizon branding says it all, that Moto is willing to set aside all of its own quality priorities in order to sell a phone through a carrier. Spineless decisions out of Schaumburg, IL made the RAZR both ubiquitous and worthless, and it’s apparently still happening.”
BGR reports that Motorola is currently working upon the new 3G Z9 slider phone. The successor to Motorola’s Z8 slider, the Z9 will have a 2 megapixel camera with flash, Live Video Share, a microSD slot, and run the Motorola Synergy OS. You can expect the Z9 slider to launch with AT&T.
Behold the Zante. This is Motorola’s version of the Sidekick. The Zante, aka the Motorola Q900, will be released in October 2007. It’s features include full multimedia support, Java, games, Danger OS, EDGE (T-Mobile), 128 mb of internal memory, and a miniSD slot (up to 2 GB). There’s an average of 5.9 talk hours, and the estimated price is $269.
The 11.8 mm thick Motorola Q9 has Windows Mobile 6, Quad-Band (EDGE/GPRS) functionality, video capture and playback at 30 fps, HSDPA, Bluetooth A2DP, 256 mb of internal memory, a microSD slot, a 320 x 240 display, and a 2 megapixel camera. The Motorola Q9 is rumoured to become available in the second quarter of this year, but it remains uncertain if Motorola will release the Q9 to the US via carriers.
Motorola just rolled out the RAZR 2: update to the best selling, original RAZR. The RAZR 2 has 3.6 Mbps HSDPA, EV-DO, GSM/EDGE, and is a full 2 mm thinner than the first RAZR. The RAZR 2 is available as the V9, V9m, or V8. It also has the feature of “Crystal Talk” technology, which adjusts volume settings and tone based upon background noise. Other specifications include a 2 inch external display, external music controls, a full HTML browser, a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a Windows Media Player synchronizer, and double the screen resolution (compared to the RAZR 1).
