Motorola CLIQ (aka the DEXT outside of the US) - certainly tries to deliver a lot for a first-gen device, and over at SlashGear we've been putting it through its paces. The main effort has obviously gone into its MOTOBLUR social networking system, which attempts to pull together all the key strands of your online life together onto the CLIQ's 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen. That's not to say the hardware isn't comprehensive, with a slide-out QWERTY hardware keyboard, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth, GPS/AGPS and HSPA on T-Mobile USA's network. They've also slotted in a 5-megapixel autofocus camera. So, have Motorola laid the ghost of RAZR to rest, and does a new OS spell success for the ailing company's future? The full review is over at SlashGear, so head there to it check out.
spent some playtime with the Motorola CLIQ last week, shortly after the company announced their first Android device, Orange and Motorola UK invited us to the launch event for the Motorola DEXT. Same device, different name; that means the same 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen display, the same wireless connectivity and the same 5-megapixel camera. It was also an opportunity to see how the DEXT stacks up next to the HTC Hero, currently my regular phone and one we rated highly in our review. The Hero seems better put together than the DEXT - albeit the latter was a pre-production model, and that could all change when the commercial devices appear - but of course the Motorola has that tactile QWERTY keyboard in a chassis not that much thicker than the HTC's. The Motorola DEXT will arrive on Orange in the first full week of October, priced at free with a new £35 ($58) contract that includes unlimited data, messaging and sat-nav access. Check out my first-impressions of MOTOBLUR - and how it compares to HTC Sense - over at SlashGear. [vms f2ff029a833cccc778fd] [gallery]
have confirmed that their new Motorola DEXT - the name for the Motorola CLIQ outside of the US - will go on sale through carrier Orange from early October. Pre-orders for the handset will begin on September 22nd, though pricing is yet to be announced. At the launch event yesterday, Motorola themselves only said that the CLIQ would arrive in the US on T-Mobile sometime in the fall during Q4 2009. They also confirmed that the device - as the DEXT - would see a release in Latin America and mainland Europe, though failed to give release dates. The DEXT has a 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 5-megapixel autofocus camera and 3G. It also uses Motorola's new MOTOBLUR sync system, which you can see demonstrated in the video below. [vms 8137a16a1acd04ed9112]
