Moto Q 9c Phasing Out

Motorola's Q 9c smartphone may already be exiting the market just months after making its debut, according to customers' online posts. The Windows Mobile smartphone has been removed from Sprint's online store; although the practice is typical for temporary shortages at the carrier, calls to representatives suggest there are no plans to restock.

No formal explanations have been given by Sprint for the low stock.

One report from a user points to Sprint having to retire the original Q 9c early to make room for a version preloaded with Windows Mobile 6.1, which adds a new home screen with at-a-glance viewing as well as better e-mail and threaded SMS. While downloadable upgrades are possible, the early swap allows the phone's return to Sprint without having to wait for a complete downloadable upgrade. [via Gear Diary]

    This is why ---

    the iPhone is so great and MS mobile sucks.

    To upgrade what you can do you need a new phone, every time you turn around. Upgrade software, get a new phone..... Great if you want to sell lots of phones.

    Sucks if you just bought the phone. With the exception of adding new hardware (G3 and GPS) the iPhones can be upgraded on the fly. Don't change your phone, change your software. Such a neat idea.

    Just a thought.
