As of right now, T-Mobile is offering every one of their Android phones at $99 or lower, with some available for free. The best deal to be had right now is the G2 (FREE) but that’s only for another day or so.
For those of you who were concerned, T-Mobile’s official follow-up to the Cliq is available today. Customers can grab one for $99 a pop, after a $100 mail-in rebate and two-year service agreement. Although it does have Motorola’s signature fingerprint on it with MOTOBLUR, we still found the device a more than worthy successor to the Cliq name, besting it all around.
So you didn’t get to make it CES this year, huh? Hopefully you at least kept up with all of our coverage, especially the live streaming stuff! For those of you who couldn’t keep up, Motorola has done their part to make things easy for you. The company recently published the video of their big 2011 announcements, including the Atrix 4G, Cliq 2, Droid Bionic, and XOOM.
Confirming 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.
Motorola and T-Mobile appear to be prepping a follow-up to their Cliq with a nearly identical looking device, dubbed the Cliq 2. Not a great deal has changed in the design department, save for an ugly looking keyboard that resembles alligator skin.
You may recall that way back in July the folks at AndroidSPIN were able to get their hands on a copy of T-Mobile’s year end roadmap. Among the listed Android devices were two from Motorola. With one handset (Jordan) already accounted for in the Motorola Defy, the other has yet to be figured out. According to Engadget, the Project Begonia phone will be the T-Mobile Cliq 2.
I decided to poke around the US Trademarks website this morning to see if I could glean anything about T-Mobile’s upcoming projects or handsets. Every once in a while I will do this to see if I can confirm rumors or substantiate a claim. So did I find anything today? You bet. Looking back over the last three months or so, we can see that the carrier is definitely working on something around a successor to the beloved G1.
