One of Steve Jobs' usual suspects on January 9th 2007 was the Motorola Q

Steve Jobs pointed to a screen with a number of smartphones displayed, and called them “the usual suspects.” He was talking about the state of the smartphone market on January 9th, 2007.  The Apple CEO was about to change the smartphone market forever with the unveiling of the Apple iPhone,  and one of the handsets that he was aiming at was the Motorola Q.

Motorola Moto E4 Plus surfaces, 5000mAh juicer in tow


Earlier this month, we all were flabbergasted and astounded when the FCC documentation for the Motorola Moto E4 Plus revealed that the phone would carry a 5000mAh battery. While Motorola has shoehorned high capacity batteries into past DROID models, this would be the largest battery every carried by a Motorola handset eclipsing the 3900mAh cell found on the Motorola DROID Turbo. And the Moto E4 Plus, unlike the DROID Turbo, is far from being a flagship model.

Images of the Moto E4 Plus were discovered today, and one picture shows that the back cover is removable. This would allow users …
