Motorola. Were you thinking of the StarTac, Moto KRZR or the V3 when you saw that? Well, you might be surprised that Motorola is capable of a lot more than just what those few phones achieved. If you’re thinking of getting a new phone for the New Year, read on and you might find another option for yourself.

Sleek has been the in-thing on the mobile phone scene in recent years, ever since the launch of the unbelievably slim Motorola V3 series of clamshells. In the blink of an eye, manufacturers around the globe have released incredibly slim mobile phones from then on; be it the Samsung Ultra series, LG’s KG320 ‘Chocolate’, Nokia’s 8800, or Motorola continuing the trend with their SLVR and KRZR. Everyone seems to be cashing in on this rage over anorexic mobile phones. Now, if you thought that every plausible type of mobile phones have been placed on a diet at the factory, think again; because we have received a new Smartphone from Motorola, the Q9H. Forget the days of the über fat and sluggish Motorola MPx Smartphones, for the Q9H has been squashed, coming in at 11.8mm. That’s hardly impressive at the first glance but once you consider that it is full-fledged Windows Mobile 6.0 Smartphone, you begin to wonder how Motorola has shaved that 1.1mm off the Nokia E61i. I’m too lazy to type anymore so Let us take a peek at what’s to come.

The picture on the box is actually life-size; we tried placing the phone on it and it fits!

The actual phone itself has a nice glossy black trim. Hrmm.. Fingerprint magnet..
