Why I shouldn’t have bought a Motorola Q9c

Way back in September I posted a note about my ridiculous experience with the Motorola Q9c handset I used on Sprint whenever I’m in the States. I most certainly didn’t hold back on my viewpoints. I recall writing: Switch it off and let the device run through it’s flocking annoying startup rigmarole (you can, almost […]

The best thing Motorola could do is go fully Android. Discuss.

I paid the 500 quid for the StarTac back in 1999. It was a brilliant, revolutionary handset. My favourite feature was the fact it carried a credit card sized sim card. Not that useful but I liked the concept. Of course the form factor was simply amazing. I was the coolest kid at University College […]

This Motorola Q9 is ridiculous; How can they send this to market?

I’ve taken some video footage of my piece-of-shit Motorola Q9 trying to make a call.  My mistake was to answer the phone, you see.  A chap called me with a story and all was good.  I hung up and tried to make a call. Mistake. Stupid, stupid mistake.  What the hell was I thinking, trying […]

The Motorola Q9: Still a rubbish phone and/or operating system

Way back in March, I left the States with my Motorola Q9 on Sprint. Obviously Sprint, being a CDMA network, isn’t a lot of use in the UK so I switched off the Q9 and never used it again until yesterday. Strangely enough it still had half the battery charge! That’s about 6 or 7 […]

Motorola shitphones and the iPhone. Everywhere.

And here we go again, back in the States. Back in the land that loves Motor-sodding-rola. Everywhere I walk, there are all kinds of Motorolas, Samsungs, Sanyos and … well, let’s group them under the term ‘shitphones’. Each time I see someone sporting one of these devices, I little mobile fairy snuffs it, I’m sure […]

Carphone Warehouse pre-Christmas event

I wandered over to Victoria this evening take a look at what would be big for Christmas this year from Carphone Warehouse (silly name, good shop). It ranged from the ‘meh’ to the ‘wow’ so here’s a quick overview in pictures.  The event was organised as a ‘home’ with each vendor in a different room… […]

Motorola not dead after all

It looks like rumours of the death of Motorola have been greatly exaggerated. According to those whose jobs it is to pontificate on companies’ state of health or otherwise – the analysts – struggling Motorola has turned a corner and things are looking up. Citi analyst Jim Suva said in a research note quoted by […]

And now Motorola has leaked images of its iPhone. Honestly, you’d think this cloak and dagger stuff was easy. The web is now teaming with countless images of the Motorola […]
