Amp'd to adopt smartphones
Amp'd Mobile may be ready to carry smartphones, writes CrunchGear. Though smartphones have generally been the province of businessmen and the wealthy, an anonymous tipster is saying that the trendy MVNO provider will soon offer self-branded Motorola Qs. Photos have been provided as evidence, which follow after the jump. It's unknown what unique features an Amp'd Q might have, but the Verizon model has Windows Mobile 5, 1x EVDO/aGPS, a MiniSD slot, music and video playback, and more. It costs $470 without a contract, or as little as $100 with a rebate and a new Verizon Wireless account.
