    It’s good to know that more and more mobile phones are adapting to Android. With the increase in its usage will bring more high-quality Apps for the Andriod.

    Nice. Will it reach the Philippines? Can’t wait to get a hold of an Android Phone. They’ve got 2 more phones that has Android OS on it. Motorola Shoals and Morrisson.

    yeah…yeah…The Cliq is a beautiful piece of hardware, but it suffers from features creep. Too many options are jammed into a skin that, quite frankly, can’t handle them. There’s a reason why the iPhone, the Pre and even the G1 have done so well — the user interfaces are simple and elegant, and they can be learned without an instruction manual. Motorola screwed up with Blur — it adds an obtuse layer of functionality to a device that does not need it.

    Moto admits the phone can be overwhelming at first, but claims the complete customization of social networking sites like Twitter, MySpace and Facebook are worth it. We disagree. Let people pick and choose what social networking sites they want to use on their phones and download apps that best serve their needs. An additional skin like Blur just over-complicates things.

    Motrola, hear us out: You guys are not doing well right now. You make great hardware and crappy software. If you want phone buyers to take you seriously, keep producing excellent handsets like the Cliq, load them with top-notch operating systems (Android FTW!) and let it be. People will start buying your products again.

    The specs look good– on paper.
    :/ I wish we could get user reviews for it soon, though. I want to know if it’s all it’s cracked up to be.

  9. Nice price with nice specs! hopefully it arrives here!

  10. I really thought Cliq is the second Adnroid from Motorola but it turns out Cliq and Dext are just the same. lol
