The CLIQ‘s slimmer sibling, the CLIQ XT, was announced by Motorola this morning at Mobile World Congress. The CLIQ XT is a touch-only device, bearing many of the same features as the original CLIQ such as screen size, resolution, camera, MOTOBLUR, and Android 1.5. Upgrades to the CLIQ XT include LED flash, dual microphones for noise cancellation, Swype keyboard, and support for Adobe Flash Lite. Also new to the device is a navigational touch pad and “pinch and zoom” capabilities.
The press release indicates the CLIQ XT will be available next month exclusively through T-Mobile USA. Motorola did not reveal any additional info about upcoming updates to Android, so we can expect April at the soonest. Although, it would be a pleasant surprise to see the CLIQ XT shipped with Android 2.1.
Are you excited about the CLIQ XT? Is 2.1 a deal breaker? Let us know in the comments!
