Could it soon be time to bin your Blackberry? In a surprise move Motorola has extended its ultra skinny RAZR range into the corporate zone with the debut of Q, a Windows Mobile powered smartphone. The thinnest handset to feature a QWERTY keyboard, the mobile mimics the design of the BlackBerry with the keyboard underneath the (320 x 240 pixels, 65K TFT) screen, but it is obviously significantly slimmer. Moto has kept the feature count high too including a 1.3 mega pixel camera, Bluetooth, MP3, AAC, WMA and WAV audio file playback and video capture. The device is also Motorola’s first to run on microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 and so includes Outlook, Pocket Explorer and compatibility with Word and Excel.
It has also been optimized to work with a range of email solutions, though there’s no mention if it BlackBerry compatible. Might this be the mobile phone that corporate America finally ditches their BlackBerry for? Much depends on the quality of that QWERTY keyboard and whether it works with a push email solution. Still with a launch date of Q1 next year it won’t be long before we find out. More pics and full details here
