I'm in the market for a new cellphone right and I am searching high and I'm looking low for the best deal on a smartphone or pda phone. The first phone I gave a try out was the Motorola Q or Moto Q (http://www.motorola.com/motoinfo/product/details.jsp?globalObjectId=113) for short. These were things I liked about this phone:
1. Design- This phone feels awesome in your hand, Tactile wise this is the best smartphone I have ever used.
2. Price- It was free after a mail-in rebate.
3. Yahoo Go (http://mobile.yahoo.com/go)- This a third-party mobile web app (this the future in mobile computing by the way)
that was more user-friendly than Windows Mobile. While I had this phone I stayed on Yahoo Go more than in the windows mobile os.

And that's a good segue way into what I didn't like about this phone and what ultimately made me take it back.
1. No push email (http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-push-email.htm)- With my treo 650 (http://www.engadget.com/2004/10/24/treo-650-is-official/), I had the ability to recieve email ala the blackberry.
2. Windows Mobile 5 (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/default.mspx)- this OS is snappy and quick, but the smartphone version of it is very limited. I couldn't even find a native app for entering text notes.

I have more to say about the Q in this little video I did: check it out.
