Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The rumoured Motorola CLIQ is now official and it's headed to T-Mobile in Q4 of this year. At Motorola's event earlier today, they announced this Android-based phone. The CLIQ will be launched as the DEXT overseas and it'll be hitting Orange, Telefonica, and America Movil. Anyways, the CLIQ / DEXT has: a 3.1-inch touchscreen display with a 320 x 480 resolution, 3G / WiFi 802.11 b/g support, a 5MP camera that can record 25fps video, Stereo Bluetooth, aGPS support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, 512MB of ROM, a microSDHC card slot, 256MB of RAM, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and will be available in Winter White and Titanium colours. This handset will be running Motorola's own customized version of Google's mobile OS, called MOTOBLUR, which you'll find below. You can check out the CLIQ on T-Mobile's official website here.

So, this MOTOBLUR - formerly rumoured to be just Blur - will be Motorola's way of customizing Android - since it's open-source and all. Engadget said it best: "It's built around social networking, and it features live widgets that integrate Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, MySpace, Yahoo, Last.fm and more. Like Palm's Synergy, Blur aggregates all your contacts into a single address book, but it shows you recent status updates along with photos when contacts all you -- very slick. There's also remote wipe and GPS tracking like MobileMe." Don't forget to watch the short video of the CLIQ below. Have fun watching it do nothing.
