|Motorola Q has now gone in for the UMTS look. With Nokia also jumping into the fray, it was not going to be long before everyone else joining the band wagon. Obviously Motorola must have known about this and have the Q with UMTS support ready for release.|
Touted as the first family of devices that blend style with productivity; the Q offers an uncompromising combination of a great phone, powerful email and captivating entertainment features that deliver a strong business and personal mobile experience. People of all professions, interests and ambitions can be productive, in-touch and stylish whenever and wherever they choose.
“The addition of UMTS to the Motorola Q family expands the capabilities and geographic reach for those that want a true mobile PC-like experience without the size and weight of a PC,” said Ron Garriques, Executive Vice President, President, Mobile Devices, Motorola, Inc. “Q liberates everyone from the restraints of today’s office and lets them stay productive, creative and entertained whenever and wherever they are.”
The first Q is expected to ship with CDMA/EVDO capabilities later this quarter with the newly unveiled version expected to be available for operator trials in late Q4 2006. The Q device family leverages Microsoft’s familiar and trusted Windows Mobile software which delivers corporate mobile messaging support out of the box with Exchange 2003, and is also optimized for a variety of third party email solutions that enable an even broader set of corporate email capabilities.
