Verizon To Release Motorola Q Next Week?

motorola-q-500x350.jpgWe're not sure how reliable the source is, but in an interview this week, a Motorola design manager told one of your faithful Gizmodo newshounds that the Q could be released as soon as next week. What makes us think it might be legit? He was holding a working model in his hands, and it was up and running on Verizon's network.

Our first impressions from holding it in our hot little hands for a few minutes: this sucker's extremely thin, although a bit wider than our Treo 650. The screen is a bit squat for our liking, though, even if it's crisp; with the soft-key icons running along the bottom and an info bar across the top, we weren't able to display a ton of information on it all at once. On the flip side, though, the buttons have a nice tactile feel; and the side jog-dial is pretty handy indeed. Maybe the GSM version will be even more sexy? Only time will tell.

Free Hat followup: The CHOPPER

Respek to my man Laklustah for this one.

FlashMob pillow fight tomorrow! 2pm @ Union Square

Who wants to partake in this madness?

Here's the 411:
Feathers fly and teddies soar as you converge on Union Square for a massive urban pillow fight! Swing and whack as you evade pillow-wielding assailants on E 14th St. Bring a pillow to the square at 2 PM and wait for the signal. Pillow fight!

Soft pillows only! Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once. Do not swing at people without pillows or with cameras. Remove glasses beforehand! The event is FREE and appropriate for ALL AGES. Wait until the signal to begin! This event is more fun with feathers ;-)

PJs optional.

Free Hat

Thanks to Mister Harry Groover on this delicious find.
