Motorola A4500 filed with FCC, comes in Verizon flavor
A Verizon branded Motorola A4500 smart phone has been revealed by documents submitted to FCC for approval. The handset, previously known under the code name Napoleon Q9 will be running unspecified version of Windows Mobile (most likely WM6.1) and looks visually similar to the Motorola Q9c, although is arguably a bit more stylish.

According to the documentation, Motorola A4500 is a “world phone”  with 2-megapixel camera and a Wi-Fi module” targeting corporate users who would appreciate the full QWERTY keyboard and fingerprint scanner. There is still no official announcement from either Motorola or Verizon, so the release date and price are yet unknown.

Yeah I agree but they didn't have trouble with the Moto Q. But this does resemble the blackberries a lot more

Does anyone know if this exclusively Verizon? Will this be available eventually by all carriers?

I have this phone (an engineering sample), and the keyboard is the best on any phone i've used or seen. I can type like hell on it. If you need a windows smartphone, this thing is easily the best around. I personally like the non-touchscreen version of winmo, hate winmo pro, and also moto included a custom homescreen that's hugely efficient and useful. oh and the fingerprint reader works flawlessly to unlock the device. My only gripe is that it doesn't work in Japan so well (they should have included umts radio rather than wifi).

It looks like a Blackberry, mostly like a Bold. Course the Q was similiar, but with the flat keyboard and a bit wider.
