Motorola CLIQ

Last updated: Sep 11th, 2009.

Motorola has announced its first ever Android Phone called the Motorola CLIQ, soon headed to T-Mobile USA! Running their custom build of Android called Motorola BLUR, the CLIQ aims to consolidate your entire social experience into one, integrated and easy to use experience.

The CLIQ is the 2nd Android Phone with a FULL QWERTY keyboard and by FAR the sexier of the two (the G1 being the other). The hardware enjoys modest improvements over the other two American Android phones - the G1 and MyTouch 3G - but the culmination of these small improves amount to big gain for consumers.

Featuring a 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP camera, and video capture at 25/fps and 2560 x 1920 resolution the Motorola CLIQ is a step up in terms of multimedia capabilities. The handset also includes an FM radio that is hidden but can be activated by a hack which you can find in a simple Google search. The other specs are on par with a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM and 32GB MicroSD Capacity.

But perhaps the biggest asset of the Motorola CLIQ is the embedded software - Motorola BLUR. This is the Moto customized version of Android that not only improves the stock Android User Interface by leaps and bounds, but also adds a new level of functionality previously not capable.
