OK, it only took a year and a half, but I suppose it's better late than never. Tonight, AT&T and Motorola finally took the wraps off the Motorola Q9h Global, a long overdue GSM version of the Motorola Q. The quad-band Windows Mobile 6 smartphone isn't the same sleek device we saw in May 2006.

Like the Motorola Q9m for Verizon Wireless, it's bulked up a bit, but this allowed for a more spacious keyboard and added features. Like what? Well, how about built-in GPS, HSDPA, Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera? Messaging is a top feature with support for Microsoft Direct Push technology, Good Mobile Messaging, POP3 and IMAP accounts, and instant messaging. Motorola also made the conscious decision to include Dataviz's Documents to Go suite and the Opera Web browser to give mobile professionals the best user experience. The Motorola Q9h will be available starting November 2 for a fairly reasonable $199.99 with a two-year contract. Is it worth it? Well, we've got a full review just waiting for you, so check it out and decide for yourself.
