With HTC’s Android-based hands finding their way onto the Internet before any official announcements, it’s time for Motorola’s turn. This time around, it’s the formerly known Begonia device. Better known now, though, as the Motorola Cliq 2. As anyone should expect, this device is making its way to T-Mobile in the United States some time in 2011, and it’s bringing along for the ride a full physical keyboard, and full MOTOBLUR integration.
The device will feature a new hardware keyboard, looking something like an orange spider-web, along with a 5MP camera on the back of the device, paired with an LED flash. You’ll find the standard features, like integrated GPS, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and WiFi b/g/n. There’s rumors that the device will also support WiFi calling, too. CellPassion has it that the device will also feature new MOTOBLUR widgets, along with a new version of the mobile OS. No word on whether or not the device will launch with Android 2.2 or 2.3.
Motorola will more than likely have something to say about the Cliq 2 at CES 2011, and rumored release date is pegged for January 19th.[via CellPhoneSignal]
