    Any help on which is better?

    Both are damn near identical. Both use MSIE 6.0 right?
    Do both play MP3's? Or only WMA's I know there were some issues with unlicensed music.

    Any help is appreciated. :)

    I haven't used either extensively, but I have pllayed around with both. To me the BlackJack seems like a better product. The menus were easily navigated on the BJ where the Q was a bit more of the feeling, "Where is that again?" One thing about the Q that also bothers me is the keyboard. The buttons felt rounded up too much and after a while would become annoying while typing. Also there is the battery life issue with the Q as most reports say less than a day.

    I'm stuck with Sprint myself so I wanted to like the Q, but it wasn't doing it for me so in my case I picked up a Mogul. If you have the option of which carriers to choose than maybe the BJ is a better option. Though Sprint does have thier $15 Power Vision Access Pack as oppose to AT&Ts $40 unlimited data package.

    If you can wait there is a GSM Q coming out labeled as the Q 9h. It supposedly has fixes and improvements over the original Q. It does look a lot cooler from the pictures I've seen. I haven't read any release dates though.

    I have a Blackjack and haven't had any problems with loading Mp3's so far.

    I've heard a lot of people have problems with their Q's, while I've heard only good things about the BlackJack.
