Listen man. Enough is enough, i'm not trying to be an immature child and I don't think you shoudl either. I explained I have a good relationship with RIM and that it wasn't worth tarnishing it with some stupid auction to make how much? I am not trying to sound so conceded but i piss on $2,000. Second the only reason I got defensive is its like me telling your girlfriend your cheating on her, it invokes stuff that shouldn't be. I try to tread carefully with RIM because of the amount of stuff they have helped me and clients out with. Lets leave all this nonsense alone ok? Plus I just talked to Guess and he laughed his ass off about my comment :smile:

haha "i'm not trying to be an immature child"...well your not trying very hard then...i post a comment about the Q and then you respond back with an immature comment? and now you dont think i should be immature...C'MON grow up, look...i dont care what you can piss on and second your getting "defensive" in the wrong thread..."This topic is done. It's dead to me."

Boy Genius 11-14-2005 10:07 PM

LOL. Its dead to me.

test, i think the comment you made and the reply received back was the product of your blindly pointing uneducated fingers at someone with a fairly high stakes claim that had no basis in the world on anything tangible aside from your own suspicions. i'm sure if you simply asked BG how he had access to the handhelds and phones, he would tell you. he's a very smart guy within this community (and all things cellular), but he's not involved within that industry directly. i think he's a commodity to the team, and i appreciate having him around - not only as a moderator, but as a valued member of this community. just talking with him a few times has really blown my mind about his profession as well as the lifestyle he leads ...very luxurious.

he wouldn't take a second to even login to eBay much less sell one of his handhelds that would otherwise be going to a client that would most likely pay a lot more than the top bid from someone who won't even chum up the money in a legit auction. and as he said, he has a business relationship with RIM that would be somewhat strained if a) the claim had any merit (it doesn't) or b) people like yourself continue down your paths in life where you make such claims in the first place. i would think an apology was in order somewhere down the line - maybe you realize, even if jokingly stating such a claim, that you were in the wrong.

I am all for BG, this guy brings some life to the forums. I think he has more connections than just RIM, my God he has every up and coming device out there...LOL.

Back on topic..thanks for the pictures so how do you like the Q vs. the 8700c? Is VZW close to releasing this? From the looks of the badging it appears close.

barjohn 11-14-2005 10:46 PM

Back on topic..BG could you post some picture showing the difference in thickness? Also, I measured the keys using your photos and the appear to be very close in size with better spacing for the Q. Is that true in person?

Boy Genius 11-14-2005 11:11 PM

Should be out Jan-Feb on Verizon. I don't like it actually, before I got the 8700 I loved it, but now it's not that great. Only thing is the multimedia support and the web browsing on EV-DO is amazing. So emotional. Keys are no way near the 8700's abilities. They are probably 2x worse than the Treo 600. I do know that this is not the final hardware and think they are redoing the keys... I will take some shots of the devices side by side for comparison something that really caught me was how thin the Q really is compared to 8700...

Boy Genius, thanks for sharing your info and opions of the devices. You do a great job and I apprciate your posts- they are all very informative and I trust your insights into these devices. Keep up the great work.

EVDO and battery life
 
Me thinks it will be piss poor.

teamcrn 11-15-2005 10:44 AM

i think the moto q looks nice...im worried about the operating system and who is going to carry it...i have nextel and in the process of switching to tmobile for blackberry only...so if tmobile offers it..it might be worth a try

I'll second that.

barjohn 11-15-2005 10:53 AM

I think BG says that a CDMA version from Verizon will probably be first. However, Motorola said that they would be releasing it for sale in December so maybe a GSM version is around the corner since the Verizon (CDMA) version is not expected until January.

teamcrn 11-15-2005 10:57 AM
