Motorola, Inc. and Verizon Wireless today announced that the highly anticipated Moto Q will be available starting on May 31. The Moto Q is exclusively available through Verizon Wireless.

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 to send and receive data.

“The Moto Q is a real must-have device that enables true seamless mobility by liberating all of us from the constraints of our offices and living rooms,” said Ed Zander, chief executive officer of Motorola, Inc. “On Verizon Wireless’ broadband EV-DO network, the Moto Q brings together all of the converged solutions you need to work, stay in touch or have fun. With the best voice, data and design technology in one ultra-thin, intelligent, hard-working device, the Moto Q allows you to be productive and entertained wherever you go.”

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.

Features of the Moto Q include:

-- Integrated Bluetooth 1.2 wireless technology for communicating with compatible headsets, car kits and certain other devices equipped with Bluetooth technology
-- EV-DO access for fast downloads of data, email and large attachments
-- Wireless Sync for anytime connectivity with e-mail, calendar and contacts synchronization
-- Thinnest QWERTY device in the world – 11.5mm includes a familiar thumbwheel to enhance the navigation experience
-- Seamless access to corporate applications, messaging, organizational tools and IT support, from across the campus and around the world
-- Synchronization with e-mail, calendar, contacts, and tasks entries, regardless of platform or ISP
-- Integrated with Windows Mobile 5.0 software for the convenience of users and IT with access to Yahoo!, Hotmail and other POP3
--All standard desktop document views supported including: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, etc.
-- Supports audio and video formats
-- Dual, stereo-quality speakers
-- Easy integration with existing IT systems for enhanced IT support
-- Enabled for leading corporate e-mail solutions
-- Flexibility enables loading of standard corporate VPN
-- Password authentication helps ensure network integrity

Customers may purchase the Moto Q for $199.99 after a $100 instant credit when purchased with a qualified Verizon Wireless voice and data plan and two-year customer agreement.
