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...

Fido has announced the availability of the Samsung JACK (Americans will know this one better as the BlackJack II) and the Motorola Q9h, and although both these phones are old news for customers of Rogers proper, the handsets are actually a pretty big deal for folks on Fido. Why? Well, it turns out t...

We know for a fact that there are Q9s in existence with WiFi under hood -- that much isn't in dispute (it may be impossible to actually purchase such a Q9 from a carrier at this point, but that's another story altogether). What's new to us, though, is the concept that existing Q9s in the field can s...

So this weird Motorola Q9 that Boy Genius Report came across is turning into quite a gold mine. First it revealed AT&T's apparent intention to let its guard down just a tad and start bringing more devices into the WiFi fold -- despite the obvious risk to data revenue -- and now it turns out tha...

AT&T has a long, storied history of shunning WiFi on the lion's share of its smartphones in an effort to corral folks into picking up a hearty helping of its own HSDPA instead (much to the chagrin of many a BlackJack, N75, and Curve owner, may we add). Not only is an unlimited data package a si...

We've been hearing about the Q9h coming out on AT&T in months' worth of leaked memos, but now we can finally put it to bed. On sale tomorrow November 2nd for a surprisingly low (and temporary) price of $200; you get the following. Windows Mobile 6 (duh) HSDPA (not sure yet if it's 3.6M...

Like pretty much everything else in life, carriers' launch dates tend to slip, sometimes to the extreme (oh, come on, you can't tell us you've never procrastinated to the point where you couldn't make a due date!). To that end, we've gotten an updated look at AT&T's expected drop dates, and it s...

Using and loving Windows Mobile isn't always sunshine and roses -- sometimes your favorite carrier doesn't carry the phone you're looking for, sometimes your manufacturer doesn't release the WM6 upgrade in a timely fashion, sometimes the next-gen platform arrives years later than you'd hoped. But ev...

Boy Genius Report is reporting (which makes sense, since it's the Boy Genius Report, after all) that Rogers is gearing up for some sort of huge Windows Mobile push. Of course, to push Windows Mobile, you need some hot hardware -- the Motorola Q9h and HTC Kaiser, to be exact. Promotional stuff has ap...
