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?

Sprint, VzW, Alltel, US Cellular? They're all CDMA carriers. So which will offer this?
i think its a vzw exclusive for a while

VZ Navigation capable?

Does anyone know if this phone will have Verizon's VZ Navigation? I've used it for a few days on the Motorola 325 and the LG 9800, and it is terrific. It is nearly as good as a factory navigation system.

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.

does the FCC ever reject a cell phone, things are always getting approved... i wonder if any applications ever fail?
I would guess that there are lots of failed applications - it would explain why certain phones don't come to the market right away, because they didn't get approved without going back to the manufacturer for modification.

Gsm Version?

Simple answer. No. Now switch a real carrier and you can get one.

. . . now if only this lives up to the hype. Even my dad has heard of it, & asked me if Cingular was getting it. Personally, I'm somewhat intrigued, but wary of Motos being less substance than icon. At least now we'll all have a chance to find out.
