Technology: CDMA, EV-DO
Thin was still in when the Motorola Q came to Verizon Wireless almost a year after its 2005 unveiling. Billed as the “thinnest QWERTY device in the world,” the Q managed to hold onto that title for a couple of years (now it changes almost every week). Features were respectable even if they didn’t quite match the trendy design. You got Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone Edition, a 1.3-megapixel camera, 3G, Bluetooth, a memory card slot, and a media player.
CNET review bottom line: The Motorola Q lives up to much of the hype by offering good call quality, an excellent multimedia experience, and the essential productivity tools, all wrapped up in a sexy little package.
