To summarize the Q:

A day late and a dollar short.

So funny..You really think that's not priced into the stock..Additionaly, you would be selling MASSIVE down movement..Horrible trading.


ALso, I assume the Q will NOT be true push email like the BB, is that correct?

It's out. Numerous 6700s are running with push email. I ran it with mine (for the two week period it took me to figure out WinMo is a joke).

I'm not sure what's coming installed anymore. I think VZW released the update, but I could be wrong.

The Q does not have the AKU2.0 (Push Email) installed. It will be a later firmware update. It may be announced Monday, but I highly doubt it will be in stores until later on in the month Verizon does not even have the unit in the system, no SKU #, no pricing, nothing. Also there is no stock at the warehouses.

The Q looks nice, but I can't see where the 50p piece slots in the side (or the dime to be international about it)!!!

Genius- push e-mail aside and the other obvious, os, etc. Would you say the Q is superior to the 8700 or not worth the effort. I only ask because I'm getting a liitle tired of always having a razr and a BB in my pockets. It used to be just had both when i was traveling or out of the office but now it's constant and i can't stand it. May have to jump to the Q. In your experience is the OS more stable than on the 700w, mine was quirky and also does it have more memory that 700w?? thanks for the help...

It depends on what you need, I carry the 8700, the Q and a special motorola phone I use as my main phone. The Q will definatly impress you in terms of all in one, its one of the best I have seen in that category. The speakerphone/reception/phone is amazing, and everything else is just like regular windows 5.0. It comes with double the amount of memory than the treo700w and is far more stable. If you dont need instant instant email/PIN/BES etc then the Q wouldnt be a bad choice at all. I can never give up the blackberry email and way it works. Razr + QWERTY you'll like it alot
