T-Mobile USA to soon launch the Motorola CLIQ Android device

Summary: I briefly tried the myTouch 3G and then went and bought the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 thinking these would be the best T-Mobile USA 3G smartphones for a while. We then saw the Nokia N900 announced with support for T-Mobile's 1700 MHz 3G network and I preordered one for myself. Today at the Mobilize 09 conference we heard from Motorola that the CLIQ will be coming to T-Mobile USA this Fall so we will get yet another powerful Google Android device and 3G smartphone on T-Mobile. I was thinking Sprint customers were lucky with all of their new devices (Palm Pre and Pixi, HTC Hero, Touch Pro2) and now we are seeing T-Mobile USA having plenty of options for the smartphone fan and as a long-time T-Mobile customer I couldn't be happier.

The upcoming Motorola CLIQ has a user interface that takes on the HTC Sense UI with the MOTOBLUR support. It will be available in Titanium and Winter White, but no pricing has been announced yet. Some of the specifications include:

  • 3.1 inch HVGA touchscreen display
  • 5 megapixel auto focuse camera with 24fps video support
  • Integrated WiFi
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB card capacities

Andrew posted more specifications that you can find here. We can assume it will also have a GPS receiver and integrated Bluetooth radio, but I am very interested in hearing more about the specs, particularly the processor speed, battery capacity and onboard memory since these have been issues on other Google Android devices.

    I stopped in to the local t-mobile store the other day for a hands on with the cliq. Aside from my fat fingers the device accurately called up several secure database generated pages and was able to utilize the login scripts that protect the sites tested. I'm planning on making a purchase.
