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

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

We've just been tipped on a fresh roadmap for AT&T's fall launches, and goodness, there's a little something for everyone in here! Note that these are order dates, subject to change -- not necessarily in-store dates -- so your mileage may vary trying to grab these devices on the dates you see he

Call it the q9, the Q9h, the Q9 global, whatever, but AT&T's apparently going by the \"Q Global\" moniker (properly capitalized, no less!) for Motorola's latest QWERTY smartphone when it goes on sale shortly. The carrier has thrown up a teaser site to help hold over the throngs of impatient masse

Seeing how the original Q came to CDMA first, it'd only make sense that the updated version of the now-ubiquitous QWERTY smartphone -- currently announced only in GSM / HSDPA form as the Q9h -- would return to its roots. Morning Paper (the folks that brought us the Palm Gandolf) is reporting that th

Will Italians be the first to wrap their eager paws around Motorola's latest lust machine? The Q9h has made what appears to be its first official bow on a carrier site, showing up with Vodafone's Italian outpost (so much for the European exclusivity theory for 3, we guess). No word on an exact rele

Hutchison 3's flagship \"X-Series\" platform of data-enabled goodies is missing a pretty critical piece of the puzzle -- Windows Mobile support -- but it now looks like the carrier plans to add it with a bang. Despite seeing a Vodafone-branded unit some time ago, MoDaCo reports that 3 is positioning i
