"Better late than never" definitely applies here, seeing how Sprint beat Verizon to the punch by three and a half months. Don't bite the hand that feeds you software updates, right? Big Red and Moto have finally outed an official Windows Mobile 6.1 upgrade for the Q9c, bringing copy / paste and thre...

The secret sauce to extending any phone's shelf life by at least a few months seems to be adding a new color or two into the mix (the Curve comes immediately to mind), and smartphones are no exception to the rule. It falls short of the lime green CDMA version's sheer wackiness, but AT&T's appar...

Mettlesome souls have been swimming in the Windows Mobile 6.1 seas on their Motorola Q9h for a few weeks now, but those waiting (and waiting) on a proper update can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The official ROM update that brings WinMo 6.1 to AT&T's Q9 is all ready for your attention, thoug...

Nothing official just yet, but MOTOMODDING has managed to pull what appears to be a leaked version of AT&T's upcoming branded Windows Mobile 6.1 ROM for the Motorola Q9h. Cooked ROMs are so ubiquitous these days that it's easy to dismiss it as having zero bearing on an actual carrier / manufactu...

It looks like Motorola and Verizon are getting ready to take a third crack at the Q9 form factor, following up the Q9m and Q9c -- and this time around, there's a little something extra in store. On top of the EV-DO Rev. A radio, the so-called "Napoleon" (codename, of course) features GSM, because -...

First things first: this isn't the first time (in the past quarter) that we've seen a handset vanish from Sprint's website, only to get fanboys riled up and it reappear days later when stock refreshed. That being said, quite a few Q9 / Q9c users are thinking the smartphone may be gone for good from...

We weren't really seeing a market for Motorola's Q9 with the 3G removed, but we suppose that's what makes us journalists, and Motorola... Motorola. In its infinite wisdom, Moto has released the Q9e on its US web store, which is simply a Q9 with a quadband GSM radio that tops out with EDGE data -- n...

There are certain phones that seem to have the uncanny ability to unite a fabulous cross section of carriers across North America, and these two are clearly headed in that direction. Telus way up there in Canada has launched the Motorola Q9c and announced the eventual availability of the BlackBerry...

Well, here are three that we didn't see coming or anything -- Verizon has officially announced the Motorola Q9c, LG enV(2), and HTC-sourced XV6900 today, all for April availability. The Moto Q9c is a more business-savvy version of the consumer-focused Q9m that was launched on Verizon late last year...
