Let’s be honest with ourselves here. You probably haven’t thought about copping a Motorola phone since the RAZR dropped ten billion years ago. If you’re a T-Mobile subscriber, though, that all might be set to change with the release of the CLIQ. Motorola’s first Android phone (but the latest in a long line of phones with capitalized, four letter names), the CLIQ features all the usual Android goodness we’ve come to know and love but adds Motorola’s new, social networking centric software interface on top of all that: Motoblur. Motoblur automatically logs into all your different social networks and email accounts (Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Hi5, etc…) and delivers all the content in a single feed viewable on the phone’s home screen. Widgets pop up allowing you to respond to messages and updates with a single cliqclick.
As for the phone itself, the CLIQ has a 320×480 pixel 3.1 inch screen and a slide out QWERTY keyboard with a d-pad for playing games. There’s also a 5MP camera with autofocus that can record video at 24 or 30 frames per second . Listening to music is a snap with the standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and GPS with turn by turn instructions has been thrown in as well for those with no sense of direction (or for those who like to hear soothing computer voices while they navigate cities). Oddly enough, while the phone does support 3G networks, Wi-Fi has been left on the cutting room floor.
The CLIQ will be available in winter white and titanium when it drops on November 2 for $200 on a two year contract.
