T-Mobile customers can soon pre-order the Motorola CLIQ for $199.99

Summary: Andrew was lucky enough to get some hands-on time with the Motorola CLIQ a couple of weeks ago and I was thinking about picking one up since I am a T-Mobile customer. Today, T-Mobile announced that existing customers could pre-order the CLIQ starting 19 October by visiting the new CLIQ website. This pre-sale runs from 19 October until 1 November and then starting on 2 November new customers will be able to pick one up for $199.99 with a two-year agreement.

I have been purchasing way too many devices lately and need to take a more critical look at devices before I jump to quickly to make personal purchases. The Motorola CLIQ does look like quite a nice device, but I plan to hold off on this one since I have my new T-Mobile Touch Pro2 and the specs of the CLIQ don't seem to be much different than my existing T-Mobile G1 Android device. I think the only other device I will pick up this year is the Nokia N900 and then I will wait until 2010 to see some high powered devices with the Snapdragon and Tegra processors inside. The $200 price of the CLIQ appears to be reasonable with the myTouch 3G priced at $149.99.

  • How's the battery life...

    ...for either of these new devices?

    If there's a reason for me to abandon the G1 it's entirely due to the battery charge, or lack thereof. Even after Cupcake this thing still sucks the life out of each charge like there's no tomorrow...and considering how FAST the juice is swallowed up there literally IS no tomorrow, unless downtime for the phone on the wall wart is afforded before the next day comes.

  • I was hoping you'd actually review it

    You seem to have totally overlooked the 'Motoblur' feature set that Motorola has stacked on top of the OS. This (supposedly) makes it unlike any other phone on the planet, and (supposedly) very desirable.
    I kind of hoped you'd pick one up, do a good review, then take it back within 30 days if you really don't want to keep it.
