Motorola shows off mobile email Q, music phones, WiMax

Motorola yesterday showed of its newest handset, dubbed Q. Q promises to be a mobile email handset designed to compete with the BlackBerry. The phone will sport a keyboard, will run on Microsoft Windows Mobile, and will use the design of the company's popular Razr V3. Motorola also showed off its upcoming family of mobile music phones, which will be called ROKR, but did not release any information about its long-awaited iTunes phone. Motorola and Apple announced the development of the iTunes phone almost a year ago, but the device has yet to hit the market despite constant hype.

Motorola also showed off new WiMax network products, called Motorola Wi4. The devices are designed to deliver wireless broadband and will use all-IP technology and peer-to-peer architecture to reduce the amount of network equipment needed to deliver service. The company said it will launch both a rural solution and carrier-class equipment.
