We've been getting little hints that the Motorola Q is on the verge of release, and today we hear the elusive Q has gotten FCC approval for sale in the US. It will first appear under the banner of clueless com-giant Verizon, which has reportedly been tweaking its usability features before its ultimate release.


The eagerly-anticipated smartphone has a QWERTY keyboard, an improbably thin profile, and an area below its keyboard that some have likened to Jay Leno's chin. Of course, it also features Bluetooth connectivity which hopefully won't be crippled by Verizon. We don't know how much it will cost yet, but FCC approval means we'll be seeing it soon.
