    Unfortunately, the globe-trotting successor to the Motorola Q, which we had reviewed, will still be sporting [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]Windows [COLOR=blue ! important]Mobile[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] 6.1 Standard. Especially now that we have gotten a glimpse of 6.5, this is kind of devastating as the phone looks good. The new Napoleon should conquer the world, at least using Verizon Wireless' network, with GSM roaming for overseas coverage and CDMA/EVDO for State-side support.

    The device has appeared some time ago, and disappeared without a release. Now, it's popping its head up again, and the thing comes with a biometric fingerprint [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]scanner[/COLOR][/COLOR] for paranoid corporate execs. The device would have fared a lot better against [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]BlackBerry[/COLOR][/COLOR] users who may want to drop their Curve for this one. Unfortunately, a QVGA screen may drive people to a more high-resolution BlackBerry Bold or Storm with display resolutions being upped. Better yet, an HTC device with Windows Mobile 6.5 and high resolution display may be worth the wait.

    @shonz

    that is referencing a phonearena article
    we still believe that Q is dead and this is misinformation

    our own resident Moto Engineer has stated the Q is dead and the Napoleon is not coming out

    so unless something ridiculous happens i wouldnt count on seeing this released by verizon

    my guess (as I speculated over at pocketnow)
    is that someone saw the Q9n(s) for sale on ebay and wrote the article based on that

    i would have to agree or some variation upon that (friend had one, craigslist, saw them on EQ:laugh2:)

    notice they didnt show the sides
    would be pretty funny if they said 'Engineering Sample' like the ones in circulation now

    Read the post your pets thread and you'll know where I was most of the day. <G>

    According to Phone Scoop....

    Saga: Processor384 MHz MSM7500

    HTC Touch Pro:

    Processor528 MHz Qualcomm MSM7500a

    So faster, but not 2x.

    I talked to a Verizon Lead Tech at one of their stores and he said that the Moto rep said at a meeting that there was going to be a replacement for the q9, just he forgot what it was (or pulling my chain and knew, but wasn't tellin'). So if someone can get a hold of a rep, they would know for sure. If I was still working in retail, I would find out for y'all just to put this to rest.

    it pretty much had been put to rest (since this thread has been dead for 2 months). pair that with moto's announcement that it's going to be at least 7 months before they make a phone with WinMo again.
