Will this smartphone eat BlackBerries for breakfast..?

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Motorola Moto Q 9h smartphone
It boasts a 2-megapixel, 8x zoom, 1,600 x 1,200 pixels camera

As the phone runs Windows Mobile 6.0, email set-up is a piece of cake. There are quite a few screens of information to fill in, but you'll be up and running in no time. A built-in File Viewer lets you peruse popular formats such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files, as well as PDFs and zipped files. However, it only shows the first page of a document and there's no option to edit and make changes.

While the lack of editing again puts it on a par with the BlackBerry 8800, it would have been nice to see the Moto Q h9 take a lead here. At least the phone features McAfee VirusScan software as standard.

Access to the internet is via the installed Opera web browser. The phone intelligently sizes content to fit the width of the screen, so there's no need for horizontal scrolling. What that means in real terms is that elements of the page are broken down and presented out of order. Side menus sit at the top, with main content a scroll-and-a-half away further down the page.

Usefully, flipping between functions is easy as the browser is just one of the programs that runs in the background. This allows you to access other phone functions by hitting the 'Home' button, before returning to the page you were on by pressing the prominent internet quick key. The phone also comes with messaging options, with MSN Live Messenger included as standard.
