Rogers intros entry-level Motorola Quench Android phone

Motorola Quench, budget-minded Android smartphone from Rogers

Just because you want to get one of the newest Google Android phones doesn’t mean that you need to take out a second mortgage on your home. Addressing the more affordable end of the market is the newly launched Motorola Quench from Rogers Wireless.  While not getting the same kind of attention as the Motorola Backflip or offering the same kind of high-end finish as the Motorola Milestone, the Motorola Quench can easily hold its own in the Android world. For starters, it gets that MOTOBLUR user interface for quick access to all your online social networks.  That’s why Rogers is calling this a “friend-centric smartphone.” There’s no physical keyboard, so you’ll be using the 3.1-inch touchscreen to take care of just about everything. It does use SWYPE typing technology, so that could help with your speed too. Other features include GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G, and a 5.0MP camera.

No, it’s not the fanciest phone on the block, but it looks like it gets the job done. It’s great to see the different ranges of Android phones being made available to Canadians. Find the Motorola Quench at your favorite Rogers outlet for $49.99 with select three-year plans.
