CLIQ 2 Officially Announced, Available Jan. 19 [VIDEO]

CLIQ 2Confirming recent rumors, Motorola and T-Mobile have officially announced the CLIQ 2, a 1 GHz landscape slider with a 3.7″ screen and a funky, reptilian keyboard. Like its predecessor, it seems intended for the middle of the market, but unlike the original CLIQ, includes a lot of enterprise friendly features. It is not an HSPA+ phone.

Highlights include:

  • Motoblur social connectivity
  • Android 2.2
  • an “ultra-fast” 1GHz processor
  • a 3.7″ display
  • 5 MP camera with LED flash
  • Wi-Fi calling
  • DLNA-enabled, allowing users to stream and share content on other DLNA-enabled devices.
  • Business-oriented features like LinkedIn integration, Quickoffice, Froyo’s enterprise security features such as remote locate and SD card wipe.
  • Device and SD card encryption are expected to be available in early 2011.

While the specs may pale next to the Droid Bionic and XOOM, also announced today by  Motorola, it’s worth noting that spec-wise, the CLIQ 2 is on par with well-loved devices like the Nexus One that are still widely in use.

The Motorola CLIQ 2 will be available to T-Mobile USA customers on Jan. 19 for $99 after rebate. Check out T-Mobile’s video walkthrough:

    Sorry but I lost respect for anything with the word cliq after having moto cliq xt, just like a hyundai it can improve all they want but once you had one and know how the experience was its safe to watch from a far.

    The CLIQ branding just makes me think of poorly built, ugly hardware and a ruined version of Android. Fitting.
