Motorola goes touchscreen with the Evoke QA4

Motorola goes touchscreen with the Evoke QA4
Last time we saw this one, it had just received FCC’s approval. Luckily, the reason for this article is not another leaked photo or document, but an official press-release by the manufacturer itself. The Evoke QA4 is the latest Motorola device targeted to fans of social networking. The key feature of the phone is its touch-sensitive display, measuring at 2.8 inches in WQVGA resolution. Sliding the phone open will reveal a numeric keypad for quick SMS typing, for example. Popular social sites such as MySpace and YouTube will be easily accessible thanks to the phone’s widgets. We hope that surfing will be pleasant with the full HTML browser, and that the 2-megapixel camera will deliver quality good enough for online sharing. In our view, the touchscreen Motorola Evoke QA4 is cute and definitely deserves attention. It will be available for purchase in Q2 2009. At what price? Well, how should we know? Ask Motorola. Strangely enough, the phone is designed to work with CDMA network, but it isn’t announced which would be the carrier to offer it.

*Update* According to PCMag, the Evoke will be available with Cricket.

I'm not sure how a phone "looks" like a Verizon phone, as there are many phones that are multi-carrier. If I had to pick, I would say Verizon, because they're the only carrier left that reall has faith in Motorola... for some reason.

If you look at the status bar you can tell that it is not Verizon or Sprint none of them put the EV-DO symbol like that. I would say this is Alltel or US Cellular

..and... maybe MetroPCS, my AR was testing it, he doesn't really like it, he said it wasn't as responsive as the Finesse we're getting.

I must say, I'm very shocked that Cricket is going to be getting this phone. Looks like prepaid carriers are starting to step their game up with their cell phone offerings. But, imagine the price of that thing since Cricket has no contracts. OVERKILL!!!
