Moto QA4 Evoke

Motorola today ended speculation by launching the QA4 Evoke, one of its very few full-touchscreen phones not originally designed for the Asian market and its closest current rival to the iPhone. Pitched as a social networking device, the phone's 2.8-inch display is used as a large view for a full HTML browser, RSS feeds and shortcuts to MySpace and YouTube but becomes a landscape QWERTY keyboard when the phone is tilted on its side. A slide-out number pad streamlines calling.

The handset is designed with North American networks in mind and will support both EVDO Rev. A for its 3G as well as CDMA for calls. Motorola also gives it a 2-megapixel camera, true GPS and microSD storage up to 8GB. The company names no carriers and only mentions a spring release timeframe, though the network choice will likely put it on Sprint or Verizon.
