"Can you hear me now? Good!"

The Motorola Q has finally landed. After about a year of hype and rumors spread around the web, the 0.45" thick device which has been billed as "The World's Slimmest Smartphone" has been officially announced. The "Q" will go on sale at Verizon's online store on May 31st and will be available in Verizon retail stores on June 5th. The phone will be priced at $199 after a $100 credit if customers sign up for a qualified 2-year service agreement.

As many of you already know, the Windows Mobile 5.0 based "Q" has EVDO wireless capabilities, a QVGA screen, Bluetooth 1.2, 1.3MP camera, QWERTY keyboard and thumbwheel scroll.

Verizon is also offering the new Treo 700p at its online store. The 700p will be $499 with a 2-year agreement. The Treo 700p uses Palm OS 5.4.9 and features an Intel X-Scale processor. PC Magazine has a take on the service plans that will be offered on the two phones:

Verizon's service plans for the Q will be the same as their new plans for the Palm Treo 700p: $79.99/month for 450 minutes plus unlimited data, $109.99 for 1,350 minutes plus unlimited data, and $169.99 for 4,000 minutes plus unlimited data. All three plans also include unlimited in-network calling and unlimited nights and weekends.

"Nowadays, security guys break the Mac every single day. Every single day, they come out with a total exploit, your machine can be taken over totally. I dare anybody to do that once a month on the Windows machine." -- Bill Gates
