FCC Approves Motorola Q
Apr 20, 2006, 2:02 AM by (staff)
The FCC today approved the Motorola Q, though no new information was revealed in the filing. The documents confirm all the facts previously revealed about the Q. It will be a CDMA EV-DO handset running Windows Mobile 5 for Smartphone. The Q features a QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, a 1.3 Megapixel camera and Mini SD slot. All documents in the filing continue to carefully avoid mentioning a carrier for the device, but it is known to be coming to Verizon. At CTIA both Microsoft and Motorola employees told Phone Scoop the software and hardware for the Q was close to finalized. Now that the Q has received the green light from the FCC, there should be no more road blocks left to prevent the launch of this phone.
So, which carrier(s) will carry this?
VZ Navigation capable?
The issue with the Motorola 325 is no Bluetooth, so you can't use it with a hands free car kit.
The LG 9800 only allows use of VZ Nav with the phone flipped open, which unfortunately disables any Bluetooth device, and enables the speakerphone.
So I'm still waiting for the right VZ-Nav capable phone.
