T-Mobile announced the Motorola Cliq last week, but that doesn’t mean this Android-based smartphone hit store shelves immediately. Instead, it appears this carrier won’t even start taking pre-orders for it for more than a month.
So far, T-Mobile has only said that the Motorola Cliq will be released later this fall, without being more specific. However, one of the promotional documents put out about the Cliq clearly states that pre-orders will start on October 19.
An Overview of the Motorola Cliq
The Cliq will be a “slider”, with a 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen and a sliding landscape-oriented QWERTY keyboard.
It will run Google’s Android OS, and come with a suite of entertainment and productivity software. This smartphone is going to be the first with Blur, Motorola’s new Android app that will let users work with a variety of social networking and email services from the homescreen. It will also offer access to a growing collection of third-party software through the Android Market.
The Cliq is going to be able to access T-Mobile’s 3G network, plus it will have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
It will be bundled with a 2 GB microSD memory card, and have support for up to 32 GB cards.
This smartphone will also have a 5 megapixel auto focus camera with video capture and playback at 24 frames per second, and a 3.5mm headset jack. In addition, it will sport a GPS receiver and a digital compass.
