Motorola's 'BlackBerry killer' coming May 31

Motorola has set May 31 as the launch date for its highly anticipated "Q" smart phone, dubbed the BlackBerry killer. Motorola is targeting the device, which is designed similarly to the BlackBerry but about 40 percent slimmer, at a much broader audience than Research In Motion. Motorola wants to sell the Q to everyone from teenagers to executives. The Q does real-time email, plays music and video, takes pictures and stores volumes of personal contact and other information. Verizon Wireless is going to be the first to carry the Q.
