The Motorola Q9c is a Windows Mobile 6 Smartphone, a thin device with similar styling to Motorola's immensely popular MOTORAZR.

Sprint first offered the Motorola Q9c in November 2007. It is the second generation Motorola Q, with updated features and software. Measuring at less than ½” thick, the Motorola Q9c offers the Windows Mobile smartphone Home screen, with direct links into essential business applications - email, calendar, contacts, to-dos and more, but it can be customized using XML to contain other information, including links to voicemail, SMS, weather (via the free Weather Bug plugin) . The Motorola Q9c has Windows Mobile 6, stereo Bluetooth, EV-DO Rev. A broadband-speed downloads, voice dialing and a full HTML Web browser to surf the internet wherever the user has service.

Verizon released the Q9m in late 2007, which has music features specific to Verizon, as well as the Q9c for their network in June 2008 with a black metal bezel. Alltel and U.S. Cellular released the Q9c in the late summer of 2008, offering the same model in lime-green. AT&T currently uses the Q9h model (which is the GSM version of the same phone.)

In June 2008, Motorola added a Software Update allowing Sprint Customers to officially upgrade their Operating System to Windows Mobile 6.1.
