Good news for non-T-Mobile USA customers who like the Motorola Cliq and think that they’ll never get it without switching carriers: they may actually be able to buy it from their operator.
According to The Wall Street Journal, which quotes Motorola’s Co-CEO Sanjay Jha, the giant phone maker is “in talks with all large operators in U.S.” for selling the Cliq. Even more, Mr. Jha is “fairly hopeful” they will reach agreements with said operators.
Although the carriers were not mentioned, it’s almost certainly that Moto’s official was talking about AT&T, Sprint and maybe Verizon too – though Verizon will probably get the Sholes only.
Other operators aside, the Motorola Cliq will be first launched by T-Mobile in the US, sometime before the holiday season. The Android smartphone (which uses the brand new MotoBlur UI) will also be available around the world, as Motorola Dext – for example, Orange UK may sell the Dext starting October.
