Motorola Q - the Q is for question mark?
Having just been stopped out of my RIMM (Blackberry) stock position, I can't wait to try out the products of the companies that may make me stop out of RIMM, the product. Motorola and Nokia have the money and global reach to stick it to RIMM if their products really work.
The Motorola Q sure looks good enough for me to switch and has all the bells and whistles.
As Seinfeld says in one of his classic TV show lines:
"You know how to take the reservation, you just don't know how to HOLLLLDDD the reservation."
For an early adapter like me, Motorola and Nokia will get me to take it, but whether I will HOLLDDD it remains to be seen.
Om Malik has a good post on the "Blackberry Killers" with lot's of comments from the nerds . That may help more than this avid consumer's viewpoint.
You may want to take a look at a couple of other units as well. Personally I am not too fond of using (and thereby supporting) Microsoft Windows Mobile, I would much rather own a phone that utilizes the Symbian platform. For a Mac-enthusiast like yourself you should look at Nokia e61 and the SonyEricsson M600i (links below). They should both be available later this year. They both feature the new worldwide standard WCDMA - better known as 3G - and will transport data at incredible speeds compared to todays networks. My guess is that Cingular will be the first operator with this kind of network in the US.
