The "QD" in "N-Gage QD" doesn't stand for anything

Straight from the horse's mouth: we just rang up Nokia's PR guy and he told us that the "QD" in "N-Gage QD" doesn't stand for anything, it's just a couple of random letters that they picked because they wanted a name that didn't mean anything in any particular language. But why not just call it the N-Gage 2, since it is the follow-up to the first one? He didn't have a good answer for this, but we're guessing that it could be because they plan to keep selling the original N-Gage alongside the new one, at least for a little while, and it's easier to market an older product if there isn't something that is so obviously its replacement already out (sorta like how Nintendo has both the Game Boy Advance and the Game Boy Advance SP).
