Motorola's Newest Phone Could Literally Beat the Cliq to Death

Motorola couldn't have been more clear that the MC9500 isn't meant for me—I don't work in a warehouse, manage inventories, or deliver boxes for a living—but oh man, would I carry the hell out of one of these.

Seriously, think about it: The MC9500 has all the hardware you need, with a 3.5G cellular radio, a 3.7-inch VGA touchscreen, and 806MHz Marvell processor, GPS, Wi-Fi, a 3.2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and even an accelerometer. You can even swap out the keypad with another configuration, or a lump of lead, probably, to maximize the kinetic force when you inevitably use this thing as a bludgeon. Windows Mobile 6.1 is something you don't have a choice but to put up with in this sector, but that's beside the point, really.

It's beautiful, in a way the Cliq couldn't even fathom. I want to take it through airport security. I want to talk on it on the bus. I want to put it on my belt and try to get a seat at a nice restaurant. I want to crush ice with it. I want to club seals with it. I, I, I... want it. Which sucks, because it starts at $2500.
