CTIA 2008 is still one day away from its official start, but the news is already starting to trickle in. Motorola got a jump-start as it, as well as Alltel and U.S. Cellular, announced the addition of the Motorola Q9c to the carriers' line-ups, including a new lime-green version. Both providers will also offer a more traditional black version if you don't feel like getting too wild and crazy with your phone colors. (And how in the world did Moto settle on lime green?)
Looks aside, the Q9c for Alltel and U.S. Cellular is much like the Moto Q9c for Sprint, which we reviewed late last year. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone features EV-DO, Bluetooth with A2DP support, a 1.3-megapixel camera, DataViz's Documents to Go suite, and 128MB Flash memory.
Alltel plans to have the Motorola Q9c in stores and online this summer for a lovely $99.99 (after a $100 mail-in rebate). U.S. Cellular's official pricing and release date were not available at press time, but we'll update you as soon as we get the information.
