Either Motorola CEO Ed Zander is confused, or some spokesperson is going to get a whuppin'.
Contradicting Zander's statements earlier this week, a Verizon spokesperson claimed that there is going to be no launch event next week. Perhaps Zander was using the announcement to force Verizon's hand early, maybe as a result of the Q being delayed so many times.
Either way, the Q should be out fairly soon. They've even got a contest to win one.
