Motorola and Verizon Wireless announced that the Moto Q will be available starting on May 31. The Moto Q is exclusively available through Verizon Wireless and customers can purchase it online at on May 31 or at any Verizon Wireless Communications Store on June 5.

Perfect for customers who multi-task and want flexibility in today’s fast-paced business environment, the Moto Q’s style and phone-first mantra is built upon the design revolution created by the Motorola RAZR – the best-selling clamshell handset in the world. The Moto Q – which runs Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 software - delivers an uncompromising mobile experience in an all-in-one handheld device that combines the reliability of a great phone, personal productivity capabilities, powerful enterprise connectivity and entertainment in a thin and stylish form factor. The Moto Q also utilizes Verizon Wireless’ BroadbandAccess network – the nation’s most award-winning wireless broadband network – to send and receive data.

The Moto Q will redefine what customers expect from a QWERTY handheld. With Windows Mobile software, the Moto Q puts a “mini notebook” in Verizon Wireless customers’ pockets by providing enough power to let them leave their laptop at home to check email*, review presentations, documents, and stay connected for a week or a weekend. Couple that with its “cool enough for Friday night” design, multiple entertainment options and simple, intuitive features, and the Moto Q will help Verizon Wireless customers stay productive, creative and in-touch while on the go and however they choose.

The Moto Q also makes good business sense for companies – big and small – providing a converged mobility solution to help organizations improve their business, increase productivity and efficiency and enhance customer satisfaction. Features of the Moto Q from Verizon Wireless include:
  • Integrated Bluetooth 1.2 wireless technology for communicating with compatible headsets, car kits and certain other devices equipped with Bluetooth technology
