Review: Motorola Q
Motorola's experience creating solid, desirable phones really shows when you compare the Q to other Windows Mobile phones created by ODMs. However even ODMs such as HTC have a leg up on Motorola in one category: QWERTY keyboards. Motorola has yet to launch a phone that is easy to type on.
Most people looking to buy the Q probably won't to type many long emails or hundreds of text messages a week. And for the casual keyboard, the Q offers a solid smartphone experience in an attractive and easily pocketable form.
For heavy texters and email warriors, the Q isn't quite the slam dunk that it is for others. You'll have to evaluate whether the slim form factor and other positive attributes will outweigh your typing slowed down by frequent trips to the delete key to correct mistakes.
