Motorola Q Global updated

Motorola has announced the latest version of the Q Global, now including Windows Media 6.1. With the new capabilities of WM 6.1, Motorola is developing its Q line to compete with the variety of smartphones being released by companies like RIM, Apple, and HTC. The operating system was refined, adding capabilities, streamlining functions, and improving security.

The Q Global works in 6 modes-- GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and WCDMA 850/1900. CrystalTalk technology is included, claimed by Motorola to reduce unwanted noise. The updated operating system now allows use of ATT&T's video share service and uploading to Windows Live Space. The camera takes 2.0MP pictures, and TV-out is now included in the OS. Content from Internet Explorer can now be cut and pasted, or the browser window zoomed in/out.

The looks have been changed to silver and chrome with gray accents. Assisted GPS capability is included for location based services. Motorola is clearly pricing the new phone to compete with Apple's $200 release of the iPhone 3G. AT&T will be selling the phone for $150 with a 2-year contract, $100 less than the previous version.
