Motorola intros Q9c for Alltel, Verizon, US Cellular

updated 10:00 am EDT, Mon March 31, 2008

Moto Q9c Alltel, VZ, USC

Motorola started its CTIA efforts by launching multiple versions of its Q9 smartphone for the US. Alltel, US Cellular, and Verizon all receive the Q9c. Like the Sprint model, the version for the new carriers drops the media interface of Verizon's Q9m for a more traditional Windows Mobile 6 interface but adds real GPS navigation. Every version also has 32GB microSDHC card support and Documents to Go preloaded to make edits to Office files on the road.

Besides color changes to the interface, the differences between carrier versions are primarily based around color: while the Verizon Q9c only ships in black, Alltel and US Cellular also get the option of the Q9c lime, which adds green to the normally conservative smartphone look. Verizon picks up the phone first in April and will sell the phone for $149 with a two-year contract; the other two carriers get their phones in the summer with pricing to be set later.
