Moto Q 9c at Verizon
Verizon has released a second phone today with the final launch of the Moto Q 9c. Like the version already making its way to Sprint and Telus, the 9c is more business-oriented than the Q 9m already in service at Verizon and uses the standard Windows Mobile 6 front end rather than a custom media layer. The switch gives the device DocumentsToGo for editing most Office documents on the road.
While given a black shell and a custom Windows Mobile skin, the Verizon model is close to the stock version with a 1.3-megapixel camera, 128MB of built-in memory, and microSDHC card support. Assisted GPS is available using the optional VZ Navigator service, the carrier adds. Verizon is shipping the phone significantly past its original April target and will sell it beginning tomorrow for $250 with a two-year plan and a rebate.
