New Motorola Black Q

A new year and a new Q – Now at Verizon you can order the new Black Moto Q and rumor has it that it will be showing up for Sprint customers soon as well. There does not appear to be to be any spec differences between the Silver and Black, however the new model ships with a fresh firmware build, boasting better power management (ah, rejoice!). 

Not all is lost for those with the existing Silver models, the firmware is downloadable from Moto directly.

Installation on mine was similar to prior updates, and yes – it wipes out all your data, so backup your rings and photos first.
