T-Mobile USA is now offering the Motorola Cliq to its current customers. However, those who are interested in switching to T-Mobile to get this Android-based smartphone will have to wait until early November to get it.
The Cliq is the replacement for the T-Mobile G1, and like its predecessor has a sliding keyboard and capacitive touchscreen.

An Overview of the Motorola Cliq
The Cliq is a “slider”, with a 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen and a sliding landscape-oriented QWERTY keyboard.
It runs Google’s Android OS, and comes with a suite of entertainment and productivity software, much of which ties in to Google’s free services.
This smartphone is the first with Blur, Motorola’s new Android app that lets users work with a variety of social networking and email services from the homescreen. It also offers access to thousands of third-party software titles through the Android Market.
The Cliq is able to access T-Mobile’s 3G network, plus it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
In addition, this smartphone has a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with video capture and playback at 24 frames per second, and a 3.5 mm headset jack. It also sports a GPS receiver and a digital compass.
