RAZRberry? No, say Herro to the Moto-Q

After much speculation and hype, Motorola has finally announced the RAZR+Blackberry combo phone, officially debuting in the U.S. as the Moto Q. Combining the cocaine induced thinness of the pop RAZR phone with the full QWERTY keyboard and advanced email features of the Blackberry, Moto (along with Microsoft) hopes to unseat Research In Motions dominance in the corporate handset world.
This candybar is one of the first devices to run on Microsoft's all new smartphone/PocketPC synergy operating system, Windows Mobile 5.0. It's mission is to erode at the Blackberry's market share like a swarm of Internet Explorers on a decomposing Netscape corpse.
The Moto Q does sport a cool (for us two-years-behind-the-curve Americans) feature set:

-High Quality QVGA (320x240) screen
-1.3mp digital camcorder with 8x digi-zoom
-miniSD card slot for music, movies, office docs, etc.
-Supports a slew of audio/video/image formats (iMelody, MIDI, MP3, AAC, WAV, WMA, WAX, QCELP, GIF87a, GIF89a, JPEG, WBMP, BMP, PNG, H.263, MPEG-4, GSM-AMR, AAC, WMV)
-Stereo speakers for headphone free listening that doesn't make Baby Jesus Cry
-Bluetooth 2.0
-Finally, ITS ONLY 11.5 millimeters THICK!!

It lacks WiFi and EDGE/EVDO/3G connectivity... There's always SOMETHING isn't there...
