Motorola Unveils Google's Android Based Handset

Recently Motorola announced its very first Android based smartphone under the name CLIQ. The phone, which would be made for T-Mobile and it marks the Motorola’s entry into the Android platform.

CLIQ will have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard as well as a touchscreen. It will come with Wi-Fi as well as 3G connectivity, a 5-megapixel camera that can shoot video at 24 frames per second and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.


With the CLIQ, Motorola would also debut its application called MotoBlur which allows users to synchronise their contacts, posts, feeds, messages, e-mails and photos from sources as diverse as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Gmail, corporate e-mail and have them appear on the device’s screen

The MotoBlur service will automatically back all this information. GPS will be included; if the phone is lost, the GPS will help find it. In case the phone is actually misplaced and a new phone needs to be issued, users will just have to enter a username and password and Motorola will stream all of the backed-up information back to the phone.

The device will be called the Dext in other markets. In the fourth quarter it will also be introduced with Orange in France and the U.K., Telefónica in Spain and América Móvil in Latin America. No pricing was revealed for any market.
