Official: Motorola Cliq Android Smartphone Announced
I think many of us would agree that Motorola hasn’t exactly had a big string of good luck lately. The company was able to cash in on the RAZR, but it hasn’t really enjoyed much success since then. That just might be turning around with the official unveiling of the all new Motorola Cliq. This represents the big M’s first foray into the world of Google Android.

The new Android smartphone was announced this morning as part of a big Motorola event, giving us the first official look at the new device. We’ve seen some leaked shots and some other codenames, but now it’s real and it’s very much in the primetime.

The Motorola Cliq comes powered by Google Android, as mentioned, but it gets a new user interface that Motorola that focuses on social networking. It’s called Motoblur and it’s supposed to give you quick access to things like Twitter and Facebook.

Other highlights include the 3G connectivity, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 5 megapixel camera, customizable RSS news widgets, photosharing, a regular d-pad (for games), microSD expansion, and a 3.1-inch screen with a 320 x 480 pixel resolution. You also get 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR with A2DP.

Look for the Motorola Cliq Android smartphone to launch exclusively through T-Mobile at a price yet to be determined.

    so i am on the fifth motorola cliq holding out for the sixth to arrive.. Unhappy and i need to say i’m extremely disappointed with the replacements ive been recently getting, keyboards not lighting up, the screen cracking , turning off unexpectedly, being extreamly hot whenever charging..etc.. ive just had the worst luck with this mobile phone.. they presented me the brand new dash and the new blackberry.. but i really like the overall flexibility of this phone so significantly that im trying to look past it.. i simply need to know if anybody else is having these problems with replacements.. or just in general.

    Im from the Netherlands and still waiting for the launch of the Motorola Cliq. It will probably be available in a fourtnight. However the Dutch version will be white. But I think the Samsung will be the most appealing Android phone up till now (Amoled display, battery, etc).

    I'm a webdesigner and love internet and it's possibilities. And Android/Google will make the future different. Hopefully it will be a better place, but surely it will be fun.

    Hope to receive my Galaxy soon. Then I will post my experiences on http://www.Motorola-Cliq.com Also hope to learn a lot here of the Samsung and Android.
