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 ┬áMotorola, 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:
