    The prompt I receieved when I went to the download page actually lists "Sprint Motorola Q' as the device. The installation went perfectly.

    Every time I try to launch the new icon (MSNBC) it hangs on a screen that says "Please wait while new resources are downloaded." I keep waiting but nothing appears to happen and I end up killing the app...?

    After you downloaded the CAB file, did you find the file with the File Manager and click the silver button? That will start the install. Then you will find MSNBC on your start menu.

    My reception/speed is normally great... I can watch YouTube videos, stream audio, etc. with only the occasional lag. The last speed test I ran clocked me @ 340kbps.

    oh, so you have to stand outside in the elements to watch the news and hear the weather which you already know because you're standing outside ? or is there a bar or someone you know so you can at least get inside ? :}

    I have a Verizon Q and downloaded the Verizon Pantech download and it installed without a hitch. Once I opened the app icon, it searched for an update which took about a minute to download and self install. I've been running videos ever since, no issues. I did this about a half hour ago, it took a couple minutes to be up and running.

    If you have a Verizon Q, you want to pick the Verizon Pantech download. Once you do that, it does everything else intuitively - extracting the CAB file and then downloading the patch or whatever it needs when you click the icon. No cost involved.

    Thanks for the link. I have MobiTV, which I really like, but if I decide to unload it instead of paying monthly, it's nice to have a video news source free.

    This is a great app but,...

    I have used this for a few months now and it runs great no matter where i am (I live in ohio) but tis is a major drain on my battery if I watch too much of it.

    Anybody else get this problem?

    This is probably the coolest feature for the Q yet. It does wonders for your long commutes and traffic jams, but it does suck the life out your battery. Well worth it in my opinion. Does anybody know of any other similar multimedia apps?
