The device has several remixed functions, including a new keyboard and directional pad. In addition, the device features a fingerprint scanner, targeting it squarely at the corporate user marketplace. The device is otherwise identical to the Motorola Q9c, with Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard.
More importantly, the device is a CDMA world phone, featuring EV-DO Rev A, as well as quad-band GSM/EDGE. If launched by a CDMA carrier in the United States, it would mark the first phone that supports both American CDMA and GSM frequencies, ever sold by a US carrier.
While it is highly unlikely that a CDMA carrier would engage in roaming agreements with domestic GSM networks, it does open the door for an unlocked version of the device to support inserting an AT&T or T-Mobile SIM card, and using a GSM network as a fallback for when CDMA service is not available.
