Motorola CLIQ Android smartphone announced with Motoblur
Motorola have announced their first Android device, MOTOCLIQ, at Mobilize conference in San Francisco. The Motorola CLIQ will be an exclusive for T-Mobile customers in US, and will go on sale before holidays.
It has a 3.1-inch HVGA 320 x 480 touchscreen, WiFi, 3G, and a flip-out QWERTY keyboard. And new MOTOBLUR system syncs contacts, messages, photos, feeds, Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo!, corporate email Last.fm and more, putting all of the latest information on it’s homescreen.
Like HTC Sense, Motorola has developed custom widgets for their device too, which put access to MOTOBLUR social networking, weather forecasting, browser and widgets. There’s a single widget that allows to send status updates either to one, several or all of your social networks with a single tap. The camera button has a focus detent, which makes it a lot easier to properly harness the power of 5 MP autofocus optics.
Despite MSM7201a core, UI is definitely faster than factory ROM on any Android device. The screen is glass capacitive, and it feels absolutely fantastic overall. Through Motorola’s thick and thin, you’ve got to admit that company has a reputation in building rock-solid phones, and the trend is continuing with CLIQ.
