    Pentax Releases The Q Camera, The Smallest Interchangeable Lens Camera In Most Of The World


    The ultra-tiny Pentax Q is the smallest interchangeable lens camera (which leaked today) in all the land and costs a little over $800, a wild price to pay for a camera that is arguably tiny. Sadly, as Engadget points out, the value for money just isn’t there with a “1/2.3-inch backlit CMOS image sensor” that competes with other compact cameras rather than other cameras… Read More

    Qualcomm calls 'first!' on Windows Phone 7 devices

    In case you didn’t know, snappy processors are all the rage these days. When I think of fast processors, the first one that comes to mind is Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon processor which is currently found on devices like the Nexus One, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and the LG eXpo. After Microsoft made its Windows Phone 7 announcement this morning, Qualcomm has come out and said that it… Read More

    Motorola officially launches the silver MOTO Q Global

    Remember that Silver MOTO Q we mentioned had found its way into a few AT&T stores last week? Its made the jump to the land of the official, available immediately as an AT&T exclusive. As mentioned before, it’s pretty much a MOTO Q9h pre-flashed with Windows Mobile 6.1 and given a flashy silver makeover. Same quad-band radio, UMTS dual-band 3G, 2.0 megapixel camera —… Read More

  • Motorola Q 9m Review

    Motorola Q 9m Review


    Motorola is in a bad way. Wilson over at Giz basically tore them a new orifice over the Q 9m and I have always thought they’ve squandered the RAZR good-will on a series of odd products that were either violently crippled or ahead of their time — like the Moto PEBL, for example. That said, they’ve remained in high in the pantheon of phone gods that I have in my heads, up… Read More

  • Hunt Ghosts With The Moto Q!

    I’ve adjusted to a certain amount of heavy-handed product placement in TV shows, but this is new territory. On the CW show, Supernatural, one of the characters, Dean, has been using a Motorola Q stamped with Verizon Wireless for part of the season. In this past week’s show, he used the camera — and its video abilities — to find and shoot ghosts. It’s a real… Read More

  • Motorola Q Pro Finally Hits the Streets

    was coming, and today it’s official. The Q Pro is essentially a Q with added security features and document editing capabilities, using the MOTOPRO Mobility suite to allow a user to securely edit and save Office documents remotely. In addition, it includes a secure VPN client and other enterprise enhancements. Why is Motorola so concerned about security of its Q users? Because, according… Read More

    Motorola Q Joins Sprint Lineup

    Not earth-shattering news here or anything, but the Motorola Q has officially been added to Sprint’s lineup of devices. Sprint’s version includes access to its Powerdreck portal, EV-DO broadband with their Power Vision network, NFL mobile news and updates, and a plethora of new content for users. Other than that, same old Q. Smart move on the NFL deal though, I’m sure… Read More

  • Motorla Q Pro to Vodafone, Plus Hungarian Photo Goodness

    If you’re an avid CrunchGear reader, and we know you are, then you’ll recall a few weeks ago we brought you news that Motorola has plans for its popular Q smartphone that include a second, upgraded model called the “Q Pro.” We told you about the differences between the Q and the Q Pro (mostly involving BlackBerry-like enterprise support), but now we find news (from the… Read More

  • Motorola Q Pro, Back in Black

    The Motorola Q was the brief-but-exciting sweetheart of the Windows Mobile world but a few months ago. Affordable, with a slick Treo-meets-RAZR form factor, it made smartphones sexy for the first time in awhile. But it’s been lamented for being stale, with other contenders improving on Moto’s design while Moto just stands there. But the Motorola people are upgrading the Q. The… Read More

  • Crappy Video Of Motorola Vending Machine

    I stopped by Macy’s today to play with the new Motorola vending machine. I need a new phone, but I’m not sure that I want a PEBL or SLVR (which were the only upgrades available to me since I have a RAZR and they were out of Qs). The machine is pretty sweet, and it has instructions on how to change your service over to your new phone. Also available were mono and stereo… Read More

    First Labeling of the HTC Excalibur to be on German O2 Network

    We’ve been watching the progress of HTC’s Excalibur for awhile now. HTC is the shadowy man-behind-the-curtain for Cingular’s self-branded smartphones, and T-Mobile’s MDA and SDA. The Excalibur is the codename for their new smartphone that’s poised to go toe-to-toe with the Motorola Q. It’s first incarnation appears to be on Germany’s O2… Read More

    Remember the UBiQUiO 501 smart phone from Tech Faith Wireless? Yea the smart phone that looked conspicuously similar to the now ubiquitous Motorola Q. Well Mobility News writes that the UBiQUiO has appeared on Expansys for a paltry $514.95. So if you’re interested in paying $300 more for a Q, grab your credit card and head over to Expansys. To be fair, the UBiQUiO (I feel like I’m… Read More
