In August, AT&T refreshed its Motorola smartphone offering with the Motorola Q Global. The smartphone is largely similar to its predecessor, the Motorola Q9h, but comes with a fresh paint job and ships with Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard Edition out of the box. Given the vast similarities in design and features, we chose to focus this review on the Motorola Q Global's performance. The Motorola Q Global is available now for $149.99 with a two-year contract.

For the most part, the Motorola Q Global is very similar to the Motorola Q9h except it comes in gray with a pinstripe design and ships with Windows Mobile 6.1 out of the box. For more information about the Q Global's design and feature set, please read our full review of the Motorola Q9h.
