Cnet Reviews has a Motorola Q review and states:
The Motorola Q has a full QWERTY keyboard, but unlike similarly eqiupped devices, the Q is superthin at 0.4 inch. A full-fledged enterprise device, the Motorola Q will run Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 5.0, so staying in touch with the office will be a breeze. Additionally, business users will be able to take advantage of the Motorola Q’s myriad voice features. On the lighter side, its 1.3-megapixel camera, its support for a ton of audio (iMelody, MIDI, MP3, AAC, WAV, WMA, WAX, and QCELP) and video (MPEG-4, AAC, and WMV) formats, and its relatively large screen show the makings of an excellent multimedia device.
And in the end:
“Of all the would-be competitors to the Palm Treo 650 we’ve seen, the Motorola Q seems best poised to surpass it. Its sexy form factor is enough to garner a ton of attention.”

Motorola MPx220 Reviews
Laptop Magazine has a Motorola MPx220 review and writes:
“The Motorola MPx220’s styling is boxy and underwhelming, unlike the slim and sleek Audiovox SMT5600. But the Motorola has a better camera, with 1.2-megapixel resolution and a flash. On the MPx220’s screen, photos looked razor-sharp, as they did when e-mailed to a PC. In fact, the MPx220 is one of the best camera phones we’ve tested lately.
The Motorola MPx220 smartphone is also a good fit for globetrotters, thanks to its use of GSM/GPRS technology and support of the four most popular cellular bands worldwide.”

The Motorola i930 has been approved by the FCC according to documents posted recently to the agency’s website. Widely talked about by Nextel power users, the Motorola i930 (or Nextel i930 because the Motorola i930 is expected to ship in the US from Nextel) is the first Windows Mobile smartphone built for iDEN cell phone networks (though it also contains GSM radios for roaming support).

The new Motorola i930 has been rumored to be on the way for some time but now looks like being a reality with Nextel.
From Motorola Nextel i605 and i930 pictures and information at NXTLnews:
The i930 is Motorola’s new ultra-high-end iDEN phone. It’s a really ambitious model, with dual color displays, a camera, Windows Mobile, GSM, infrared, and an SD card slot. It might be a bit too ambitious, though… It’s been in the rumor mill for about a year and a half now, and according to Moto, the Motorola Nextel i930 release date will be in the second half of 2005.
“One slight disappointment is that the i930 doesn’t have Bluetooth. But then again, as delayed as it is already, if the i930 had Bluetooth it probably wouldn’t be out until 2006…Making the i930 even more ambitious for Motorola is the fact that the i930 is planned to be the first phone with the new WiDEN high-speed data technology, which provides data rates four times faster than current iDEN technology.But that may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, so to speak. All of these cutting-edge features have a multiplier effect that makes the phone exponentially more complicated to engineer and difficult to test, hence the delays.But with all of these delays, some features of the phone – like the mere VGA camera and lack of Bluetooth – are making the phone look outdated by now. Which is why a Motorola representative admitted it’s likely that the i930 will simply be scrapped in favor of a new model that has a megapixel camera and Bluetooth. Unfortunately, that would mean an even longer wait for an iDEN”
