Smartphone Thoughts thinks that the Motorola Q, the super-thin Windows mobile handset that was announced last month, will ship on Verizon Wireless in the first quarter of 2006.

While the handset was announced, details like if it would be GSM or CDMA (or both) were not announced. The article notes that Verizon's model will include EV-DO while the GSM model will sport EDGE.

Features of the Motorola Q include:

  • Windows Mobile 5.0 OS
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • RAZR thin design, .45" thick

Q1 2006 is when Motorola said the device would begin shipping.
