Moto Q2 Teaser at Sprint
Sprint will be the next to use Motorola's Q9 smartphone but should apply its own twist to the core design, says a new teaser that has appeared on the company's website without an announcement. To be called the Motorola Q2, the phone will be a close cousin of the Q9m at Verizon but should be more faithful to the original design with blue lighting. The rendering shows the Palm OS running on the device, though this is believed to be a mockup; Windows Mobile 6 is expected to come standard as with the Q9's launch on other carriers.
The teaser provides few details other than to suggest a release before the end of the year. Services are expected to include Good Mobile Messaging for "push" style e-mail sync with Outlook and Exchange servers as well as Sprint's own software store for third-party apps. Prices may be higher than for the current Moto Q, which sells for $150 with a two-year contract at Sprint.
