Motorola Q9m now available
For those who have been holding out for a new cellphone and want to hop aboard the EV-DO bandwagon, why not consider the Motorola Q9m smartphone from Verizon? Where the original Motorola Q has failed, it is hoped that improvements and revisions made to the Q9m will be erase memories of its predecessor, bringing users a pretty strong case for a smartphone that works seamlessly with Verizon’s very own V CAST 3G EV-DO network. Some of these features a include a full QWERTY keyboard that makes messaging a cinch, a side scrolling thumbwheel for easier navigation (kinda reminds me of the Sony Jog Dial found in older Sony cellphones), dedicated keys for one handed navigation, as well as support for over-the-air music downloads, making the Q9m a pretty strong case for a mobile music player.
Currently, there are more than two million songs available for download – with such a vast library, chances are you won’t get bored of your playlist anytime soon, unless you listen to extremely obscure bands that have not yet jumped onto the MP3 bandwagon. The Motorola Q9m comes in a black and red design (it reminds me of the black and red color scheme of the new DS Lite and Brain Age 2 bundle), housing a pretty impressive bunch of features such as voice activated dialing, smart contacts dialing, speakerphone functionality, and Bluetooth connectivity.
Some of the other features available on the Motorola Q9m include:
- Two home screens (standard and multimedia) with easy toggle
