Motorola Q at Sprint

Cellular provider Sprint today added Motorola's Q to its range of smartphones. Available in the US chiefly through Verizon beforehand, the Q in Sprint guise includes access to the company's new Powerdeck portal, a Web link built into the phone's web browser that gives quick access to special mobile-formatted content as well as an online help guide. The handset also taps into the carrier's EVDO-based PowerVision broadband access, NFL Mobile news and score updates, and customized on-demand content from a myriad of sources.

Technical features of the Q remain largely unchanged; however, Sprint says its incarnation of the phone maintains the full Bluetooth functionality that Verizon has partially disabled in its version, including the ability to use the phone as a broadband modem for a nearby computer. Motorola's device will be available through Sprint in mid-February. Pricing remains unknown but should compete closely with the $200 Verizon price when combined with a two-year contract.
