The Voq Professional Phone is a tri-band Smartphone based on a 200 MHz Intel XScale PXA262 processor with stacked flash memory, running on Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 edition. Announced on October 8, 2003, the product combines elements of a mobile phone, a personal messaging device, and a PDA with such distinctive features as a flip-open QWERTY thumbpad (in addition to the familiar 12 key dial pad).
