In the wake of Motorola’s disappointing fourth-quarter guidance, there wasn’t a lot of talk about the Motorola Q, which was positioned as yet another Blackberry-killer earlier this year. When the Q was launched, Motorola was bullishly talking about selling three million or four million units in 2006. While I haven’t seen any specific Q numbers, NPD Group recently issued a report that the Q was the top-selling smartphone from August to October, and overall there were 715,000 units sold. According to Kenneth Leon, an analyst for Standard & Poor’s, Motorola’s wireless phone sales are flagging because the Razr is losing some of its buzz; while sales of the Q, may be slowing.
