It is called the Q because it comes with a QWERTY keyboard.
What makes this phone so cool?
- Full keyboard
- Big 320x240 screen
- Super thin
- One of first phones to run Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 OS
- Internet Explorer for web browsing
- Mobile Outlook for email, contacts, calendar, and task lists
- Mobile versions of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint
- Side scroll wheel for one handed web browsing (IE will reformat pages so they fit the width of the screen)
- Windows Media Player
- No external antenna
- 1.3 Megapixel camera with light
- Video camera
Another *really* cool feature this phone has is support for SlingPlayer Mobile. With a Slingbox connected to your TV at home, you can use SlingPlayer Mobile to stream whatever your TV can view to your cell phone screen. The phone acts as a remote control to your TV. With the Q, a Slingbox, and my current home theater setup I could use my cell phone to...
- Watch DirecTV (local channels, ESPN, CNN, HBO, etc.)
- Watch whatever shows TIVO has stored on its hard drive
- Schedule TIVO recordings
- Watch whatever DVD is in my DVD player
- Listen to AM/FM radio
- Listen to my MP3 collection stored on my computer (via my Xbox 360)
- View all the photos stored on my computer as a slideshow (via my Xbox 360)
