Motorola unveils CLIQ
Motorola has released its latest Android handset – the CLIQ that will boast MOTOBLUR (not very bright, eh), the first and only solution to synchronize contacts, posts, messages and photos among others from a variety of sources including Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail, work and personal e-mail, and LastFM, where all of these will be delivered right to your home screen in a jiffy. All content is fed into easy-to-manage streams, freeing up more time and space for you to live out your life to the fullest. Just in case you thought the CLIQ looks familiar, that is because this is known as the Motorola DEXT outside of the US.
Let’s take a look at the hardware first before we move on to the software, and the Motorola CLIQ does not disappoint as initial impressions seem to be rather favorable, as the CLIQ maintains the solid build-up of previous Motorola handsets. Being a QWERTY slider, it will feature a full HTML browser for you to stay connected online via Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, while a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus capability lets you snap great looking photos under good lighting conditions, letting you upload them to photo sharing or social sites in a jiffy. In addition, you can play back YouTube videos wherever you are, while the inclusion of a 3.5mm headset jack lets you hook up just about any pair of headphones to enjoy your favorite tunes.
As for MOTOBLUR, your entire range of conversation threads, friend updates, stories, links, photos and more will be delivered to live widgets on the home screen automatically, doing away with the need to dabble with numerous open applications and menus simultaneously. This gives you unprecedented ease of use to stay updated with your friends’ status updates all the time, instantly, while allowing you to filter through email as they come in, whether to reply those or not. You can also blast your social network status straight from the home screen without individually updating them manually, while news feeds keep you in the loop of the latest happenings. Good times could come back for Motorola with the CLIQ and MOTOBLUR, so do keep a lookout ofr it in Q4 this year.
