    Ugh, another square keyboard.

    Seeing as they seem to be keeping the processor type / speed a secret, I'm not very enthusiastic that this will be a real step up.

  • twoboxen

    same Qualcomm 528 that's been around for years. BOOOORIINNG.

    • David

      Has that been confirmed? I haven't seen any mention of the processor in any of the official spec lists I've seen. Which means you're probably right, but I still have hope that there will be a reason for me to upgrade my G1.

  • TareX

    If it's going to be free with a 2-year plan, then it makes sense that the processor is old.

  • deathfirst

    lol, seems we are all intrested in the same thing… FASTER PHONE…

  • Here are my impressions about Motorola Cliq:
    Certainly superior because it is using google operating system , which is arguably the highlight of this phone. Well this phone is basically for people who are more into social involvement, it lets you update your status to various social networking sites at one go. All application at one place , rather then logging again and again to various sites .

  • we still need improvement.. so go go developer..
