July 8, 2008 The folks at Boy Genius Report have got their hands on a new Motorola smartphone codenamed the “Napolean”. It’s a CDMA EV-DO Rev. A Q9 with full GSM world roaming capabilities, including the U.S. 850MHz/1900MHz bands. Features of the phone revealed so far include a fingerprint scanner, Windows Mobile 6.1, quad-band EDGE, 2 megapixel camera with flash, stereo speakers, 320×240 resolution screen, Wi-Fi, and a 1500mAh battery. BGR report the full QWERTY keyboard isn’t as good as the first Q9 or Q9m, and the d-pad is a little on the stiff side and difficult to use but the sound was good, and the screen seems to be the same as the original Q9s. The leaked phone is Verizon branded and will launch on Verizon, but BGR confirmed the phone also worked fine with an AT&T SIM.
