Motorola unveils thin phone for e-mail addict
Motorola Inc. unveiled on Monday an ultra thin mobile phone with a keyboard, aimed at people who have become addicted to Blackberry e-mail and messaging devices, reports Reuters
"Motorola said the latest handset, dubbed the "Q," was inspired by the ultra-thin design of its popular Razr phone -- which has become a design icon and status symbol. The "Q" is slimmer than the Razr and about 50 percent thinner than top rival phones that have tiny keyboards built-in, it said.
Motorola's "Q" is based on software from Microsoft Corp. and can support e-mail from a variety of third party applications, including Microsoft's, Motorola said. It expects the device to go on sale in the first quarter of 2006."
