Moto Hint QA30

(Updated with Alltel launch info) Motorola today leapt into the growing field of non-smartphone messaging hardware and released the Hint QA30. The handset has the recent squat, wide-aspect design of devices like the LG Lotus to make room for a full QWERTY keyboard. Rather than cater to full mobile apps, though, the Hint is designed for social networking with e-mail, SMS and text-heavy social sites like Facebook. Motorola claims a more advanced web browser than on most simpler devices with quick scrolling and zooming for navigating pages.

The device is also branded as a media playback device with a full 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth with stereo audio, dedicated playback keys and a microSDHC slot that holds 8GB or more of storage. A two-megapixel camera at the back handles basic photo and video capture.

Confirming a recent leak, the Hint QA30 is coming to Alltel and should support both CDMA calling and EVDO data with support for Internet-based XM Radio. Alltel will carry the phone in its stores on Friday the 28th and sell it for $100 with a two-year contract.
