    im not too overexcitred about this new offering......i have heard that the branded Moto Q through Verizon freezes up a lot of you use it too quickly.........Sprint doesnt use a completely different firmware but they do use a pretty heavy overlay for thei PictureMail, Sprint TV, Web, etc...........i think that it would prolli freeze up a lot as well

    If this ran regular WM5 I would pick it up just to try it. But not being able to tap on the screen is a big drawback IMO.
