Motorola Q9h

BlackBerry Connect is still kicking, doing its best to bring BlackBerry services like push e-mail and PIM synchronization to other devices. Although its future with Nokia looks grim, Windows Mobile just an updated version for the Motorola Q9h. Any Moto Q users in the house can grab the new software from the IM & Chat folder if they’re running Windows Mobile 6.1, or go to www.motorola.com/us/Q9h/BlackBerryConnect on their mobile browser if running WinMo 6.0.

Australia gets BlackBerry Connect for Moto Q9h

Comments

BlackBerry Connect for Motorola Q9hIf there are any Windows Mobile lovers out there outside of that one cricket in the corner, you’ll be happy to hear that BlackBerry Connect will be supporting the Motorola Q9h in Asia-Pacific. The Windows Mobile 6 device has enjoyed BlackBerry services abroad since December, but clearly there were some localization issues to iron out. With BlackBerry Connect, WinMo users can get their push e-mail fix, and access a lot of the standard BlackBerry features – it even plugs into the BES and has all the usual IT policies and security standards in place. Interested? Head on over to the Motorola BlackBerry Connect site for your download.

The Motley Fool calls out Motorola

Comments

Court JesterYou know it’s hard times for a company when someone wearing a three-pronged hat with bells on it calls you out. But considering the bad luck Motorola has been having recently, maybe we shouldn’t be so surprised. Pointing to Moto’s financial downturn in the face of across the board industry success and the iPhone‘s drive to make smartphones cool for everyone, the analysts at the Fool wonder why a company with such a hugely successful product like the RAZR can’t make enough money.

Here’s a potential answer: Motorola’s product line is stagnant. The RAZR’s selling point (which is now 3 years old, mind you) was that it was sleek, exclusive, and cool. When the device went from haute couture to mass market in 2005 and even your grandma was sporting a pink V3, the RAZR lost that cachet with trend setters. Future iterations have failed to hit the magical trifecta of the original, and most seem to be slightly revised models of a device that everyone already owns (which they are). Hey, Motorola: there’s a reason why a $500 device made by a computer company gets dubbed the “Jesus Phone” and receives national news coverage during its release. Hit us with something new already, please. And no, we don’t mean the Q9h.

CDMA Motorola Q9h (“Nelson”) coming

Comments

Motorola Q9hThose crazy cats at the Morning Paper, who also broke news on the Palm Gandolf, are now bringing word of a CDMA Motorola Q9h, which has only recently been seen on the GSM side of the fence. Dubbed the Motorola “Nelson” (which should ring bells to anyone who knew the Q9h as “Norman”), the device should be rocking WM6, 2.0 Mpx camera, miniSD expansion, Bluetooh, EV-DO and “ultra thin” stylings.

Sprint’s rumored as the featured carrier, but nothing is as yet confirmed (does anything ever get confirmed anymore?). All we know is that our boy the BG is raving over the Q9h, so we’ll keep tabs on this BlackBerry competitor.

Boy Genius brings news on Q9h, i620

Comments
Motorola Q9h

On an icky Thursday in Ottawa, there’s really nothing that can brighten up your day like screens of new devices from the Boy Genius. BG’s got his bling’d out hands on the new Motorola Q9h and Samsung’s i620 (think BlackJack 2) and delivers his usual brand of impressions. While he digs the new keypad on the Q9h, he laments Samsung’s decision to keep the BlackJack’s terrible design. However, it seems as though the i620 is packing Wi-Fi, HSDPA, and a front facing VGA camera (2 Mpx cam on the back) to compensate.

Not bad at all, but also not really anything to make us forget about the BlackBerry Curve. Thoughts, people?
