Cliq: Motorola’s First Android Smart Phone
Motorola has unveiled its first Smartphone powered by Google’s Android Mobile Operating System. The device is called the “Cliq”. Motorola hopes this new model will help the company turn around its fortunes.
The device will be available in the United States through T-Mobile. It was unveiled at the GigaOm Mibilize09 event in San Francisco.
Motorola describes the new phone as “the first phone with social skills.” The Cliq is geared towards social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.
Motorola’s chief executive, Sanjay Jha introduced the mobile phone at the event.
“Caller ID on the phone will be displayed alongside the caller’s profile picture and their latest status updates,” Jha said.
Status updates or any other friend updates can be viewed on the phone’s home screen.
The Cliq features a slide-out keyboard, music player, 5 megapixels camera with video capture. The price hasn’t been disclosed by Motorola yet.
Since social networking sites are very popular today, Motorola definitely is taking advantage of this. Most users will be caught by the “geared towards social networking sites” description of the phone. Most Filipinos are really into social networking and I think a huge percentage uses Friendster and/or Facebook and also Twitter. If this phone hits the Philippine market, I am sure a lot of “internet savvies” will be eager to get hold of this phone.
Let’s see and wait if it’ll be launched in the Philippines.
