    I actually saw one yesterday at a Verizon Store. I mentioned if only there was a nice looking pda - and he showed me the Q Black. Nice! I asked when it would be available and said in January 2007.

    I own a Treo & Q... I would NOT keep the Q if it werent for the extended battery.. hopefully they will have the extended battery door available in black?
    I would hope so - otherwise that would look pretty stupid..

    the Q Pro is a different phone. that's the upgraded version of the Q. the black Q is the same as the silver Q....only painted black. there's a thread about the Q Pro ("Norman" i think) somewhere.

    I might be confused, because I know the PRO is black. But they did say it would be out sooner than later. Have to wait and see I guess

    Along with the Q Black, VZW is releasing a software update (for all Qses) that is supposed to increase battery life. According to the following thread, it seems to be working very well:

    The MOL2 upgrade brings previously released Qs up to date with the black Qs. My experience is that the MOL2 upgrade improves battery life, maybe 10-15%. It is noticable, but not a jaw-dropping improvement.

    Black one looks nice, I guess they did this to compete directly against the Blackjack. Were we supposed to get the 700wx on verizon this month too? Oh well.

    AceMarlak, no offense, but this sacred and precious source of intel of yours is pretty much worthless. Cellphone store manager! As Inspector-Gadget used to say... "Wowzers!" He must have a Verizon Security Clearance that would make a US Army Intelligence General burst into a jealous fit. Not.

    (Ace, before I get too deep here, what this mgr is telling you is public knowledge already, and he doesn't know anything more, and please forgive my sarcasm at 80wpm, I'm buzzed because of the holidays.)

    Personally, I think that Mola Ram from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom knows more about the future family tree of cellphones.

    Anyways- despite much of online talk being either speculation or misleading half-fact at best (with some fruitful fact out there for those that can sort filet mignon apart from pure doggy dog bullcrap while searching online for a bit) it's better than info acquired from your cellphone store peons by a magnitude of nearly epic and infinite proportions.

    I've spoken with so many employees at many stores of every local cellphone provider (Sprint/Verizon/Cingular/T-Mobile/Nextel) within the last 70 days and none of them knew ANYTHING about the Q pro (except for one person, who's mgr at a private store that sells all carriers phones)- not the name, the fact that it might possibly exist in the future. - = N o t h i n g = - Their minds and faces were blanker than the most bleached paper on Earth when questioned regarding the upcoming Q Pro. Granted, it's CDMA and not all GSM related employees should know everything yet, but the Q Pro *IS* going to be GSM right? Hopefully someone would know something?

    Amazing how in this age of information, how many reps get it wrong so easily. Some Cingular imbecile I spoke to didn't know jack about the 4GB mini-SD cards and improvised by insisting 1GB is all I need to cover up the fact that he had *NO* idea what was being discussed. (FAT32 - 4GB, other stuff...) No kid, you don't know my needs.

    Point is that not only do many reps know nothing about the future products, but also lack full knowledge on the current product spectrum.

    Also funny is how many people online believe the next big thing in Q-dom is the black Q. Hmmm it has so many new features.
