Review: Motorola Q

Is It Your Type Body Three S's

In Depth review of the highly-anticipated Motorola Q, the first EVDO Windows Mobile Smartphone and slimmest smartphone to date.

Almost a year ago, Motorola announced the Q and everyone was clamoring for it. To date, no one had announced such a slim smartphone - especially one with a QWERTY keyboard. But now that the Q is finally coming to stores this week, the Q isn't so special anymore. Everyone (well, except for BlackBerry maker RIM) has announced an ultra slim "BlackBerry killer."

The Q is definitely more pocketable than a BlackBerry, and certainly more versatile than one. With a camera and the ability to load a wide variety of applications, it is clearly not just for corporate users. But Exchange synchronization, the keyboard and the familiarity of Windows will make the Q a strong contender for corporate users as well.

While the Q is still a looker, and worth looking at, it is no longer unique. It is a solid phone for many, but with so many similar models, there may be better options out there now - especially if you plan on using the keyboard quite a bit.
