Itâ€™s always nice to get a shot at technology that we ordinarily donâ€™t get to use. Thatâ€™s one of the best things about working in the TigerTV Labs; getting the hands on with a lot of different technologyâ€”some of it very cool, some of it that definitely requires a bit of pondering to figure out what the designers were thinking. Kudos to the Designers of the Motorola Q Unlocked GSM Smartphoneâ€”Theyâ€™ve designed a phone that is as versatile as it is useful. Check it out!
Until recently, the Motorola Q was under an exclusive contract with a non-GSM carrier. This meant that us sim-card-crazy phone-fans were out of luck. But that contract has run out and with it, our time with the Motorola has arrived. The full-color 2.4-inch LCD screen is bright, and easy to see. The QWERTY keyboard makes typing emails, documents, or just instant messages easy and quick. And those well-designed features are just the tip of the mobile iceberg.
This smartphone comes running Windows Mobile 6.0, one of the most complete operating systems yet for a mobile device. This means that you can access, write, and edit any Microsoft office document or file, anywhere you are. This makes out-of-office auto-replies obsolete, donâ€™t you think? Oh, rightâ€”wrong function. Thereâ€™s so many itâ€™s easy to get confused. Thereâ€™s full email and Internet access via Microsoft Explorer. Keep your appointments, check email, and work remotely with easeâ€”thatâ€™s the whole point of a smartphone, isnâ€™t it? Of course it is. Connectivity is taken care of by on-board EDGE Class 10 technology, one of the most widely used networks ever.
The Motorola Q gives fun more credence than many of its competitors as well. With a 1.3 megapixel camera that can shoot both still pictures and MPEG4 quality video, youâ€™ll be able to capture anything you see, anywhere you might roam. Thereâ€™s picture messaging along with the regular old text messaging, too. This is actually a pretty impressive little camera tucked into the Q. It has a fixed focus for easy use, but an adjustable aperture and a digital zoom function that lets you get in close for portraitsâ€¦or to snap a pic of the ding somebody put in your car door for insurance purposes. Hey, the phone is designed to be useful.
The Motorola Q has 128MB of flash memory, and about 40MB of User Memory available. But donâ€™t despairâ€”thereâ€™s a regular sized SD Card slot, so you can pack up to 1GB worth of songs, movies, and anything else spawned by your myriad multimedia interests. Itâ€™s Bluetooth stereo enabled, so whether youâ€™re listening to a headset or headphones (for music) you can do so in either ear. Audio that accompanies video is better in stereo, anyway. If youâ€™ve been shopping for a smartphone, consider this one. It is as thin as it is useful, and comes from one of the most trusted names in Cellular technology. The Motorola Q Unlocked GSM Smartphoneâ€”a smart buy for quite a number of reasons.
