In terms of hype, nothing beats an actual launch date for a new flagship phone. Â Pre-order dates come close, but what happens until then?Â What are we fanboys and fangirls to do until we have something to sign up for?Â A recent trend is putting up countdown timers for pre-sales and orders and that’s exactly what happened today with the Motorola Cliq.
You can now register for updates and information as it pertains to the Cliq on a T-Mobile minisite dedicated to the handset.Â Â Â Doing some basic Calendar 101, we find out that October 19th is the official day to pre-order your next Android phone.
While you wait for the countdown to reach zero, visitors can play with a demo of the MOTOBLUR interface as well as chat with other fans in the forums.Â By the way, if you register for the updates, you are entered into a drawing for a “grand prize vacation” courtesy of T-Mobile!
Motorola CLIQ with MOTOBLUR will be available exclusively to T-Mobile customers in both Titanium and Winter White beginning Oct. 19 at http://www.T-Mobile.com/CLIQ or by calling customer care. CLIQ will be available in stores nationwide and online beginning Nov. 2 for $199.99 to eligible customers with a two-year agreement. – PRESS RELEASE
