The newest version of the Motorola Q9h in silver is the first AT&T device to ship with Windows Mobile standard 6.1 pre-installed, and features several enhancements beyond the color addition.
Most importantly, Motorola has added Firmware-Over-The-Air (FOTA) updates to the device on the request of AT&T.Â Any updates, bug fixes, feature upgrades, etc. can now be sent over the air directly to the device by way of AT&T’s FOTA servers.Â Motorola claims any updates sent over-the-air will be saved even after a hard reset.
Other marked improvements include extended battery life by an estimated 40% by way of better 3G data management- the data connection will be turned off any time it’s not in use to save on battery drain.Â The Q9hS will be the first Windows Mobile device to fully support AT&T’s new A-GPS system as well, resulting in faster satellite acquisition.
Finally, the Q9hS will feature “Crystal Talk,” which reduces background noise, automatically adjusts your volume, and has â€voice enhancementâ€œ by way of a custom Digital Signal Processor chip.
