I am considering finally giving in and buying a PDA phone. I have my eyes set on the Motorola Q… I just came across the Motorola Q Wiki. How cool!
Do you own a Q? If so, do you like it and are you synching it with a Mac by any chance? Thumbs up or down?
haven’t used the Q, but it looks great. and ANYTHING must be better than the Treo!

Great review on the Q by Paul Stamatiou.

Hi there. Been lurking here for awhile! :-)
I bought my Q about a week ago and so far LOVE it. I don’t sync with Mac. I use Verizon’s Wireless Sync to sync up with my PC and it has worked perfectly. I’m not sure if Verizon’s software is Mac compatible. Motorola also has a similar product called Share (I think).
I use it primarily for the phone, email & calendar. All of these features are top notch. Email works pretty much like Outlook works on PC with exception to a few missing options. The phone is nice and clear.
If you have any specific questions feel free to email me directly.

You can sync with Mac using a separate program:
I have the hiptop (SideKick) version and it sort of works; I’m still trying to get calendar sync working right. It’s not the highest-quality program, unfortunately, and they don’t have a demo version either.

Get a Nokia E61, you will be SO much happier then dealing with Windoze Mobile and it syncs natively with the Mac via iSync.
Got built in Wi-Fi too! Seriously, don’t bother with a Q…

I am a Technical Engineer in Reseach & Development at a company we all know and I would not recommend the Q, ESPECIALLY for a designer. Windows Mobile 5 and all past Windows Mobile OS’s are the most unintuitive human interfaces designed. When I wrote my review of this device I found myself using my phone half as much as used previous phones due to the porcess it takes to run, what should be, simple tasks. Stumbled on your site only a few days ago and love it. Hope I’m not too late. If you would care for any further tips feel free to email me.
