Am I the only one that wants this?

"The cancellation of the i645, combined with availability problems for the Motorola MPx220 in Cingular's lineup, leaves a vacuum of new Windows Mobile Smartphones in a traditional clamshell form factor, as the trend toward QWERTY-keyboard devices like the Moto Q and Palm's Treo accelerates.
"
I want a flip style phone with Windows Mobile so I can have Outlook, and I want to get it under contract so that the features will be supported and the price will be discounted. Just seems impossible right now. It's a little frustrating. 😕 Oh well, another one bites the dust.

hmmmm.. did anyone want this or did anyone even know about this phone?

Interesting looking phone and i didnt even know that this one existed. 🙂 lol.

any one else?
I had no clue of this phones existence... looks pretty bad ass though, 'tis a shame. Oh well, I'll just stick with my E815

I am dying for a small flip smartphone. I definitely would have considered it. I can't stand those large "PDF" type clunkers.

Sprint is supposedly considering this variant of the i645.
I'm a Sprint customer and would buy such a phone in a heartbeat, price no issue!

the q is a tmo exclusive

verizon will not be getting the Q first as it will initially be gsm and a t-mobile exclusive. i have heard this from t-mobile but Also from executives at Motorola. i work for tmobile if you are trying to question my credibility. 😉
Honestly, I don't belive this.

1. Cingular has bought the exclusive rights to Motorola's RAZR line. The Q is a part of that line. T-Mobile will most likely get it at a later time.

2. I don't think T-Mobile is dumb enough to blow their money ...

I've heard differently from a source at Motorola.

While there is a GSM prototype of the Q, apparently its production is not certain. They may skip it and work on a 3G WCDMA version instead.

The CDMA EV-DO version, however, is definite. So if T-M...

yeah, let tmobile mess up again! Seems as if tmobile, sprint, and cingular always try the phones first then have multiple problems with them 😁

Is anyone else a little worried...

Now, I truely couldn't care less about the cancelation of this phone. However it marks a disturbing trend away from clamshell style PDA and smartphones.

It is very very likely that I'll not get another PDA/Smartphone until they start making new clamshell models.

Am I the only one?

hmm.. good point.
I too am concerned about the availability of flip-style PDA phones. I've been using a Samsung i500 for over two years and there is still no suitable replacement available or even on the horizon. Sprint cancelled the anticipated replacement (i550) las...

I concur.

thats fine

The Q will be a much better phone anyway.I don't think verizon is going to be know very much longer for having the worst handset line up. They seem to be really stepping up to the plate in so many aspects. Go verizon Go baby! 🙂
