#MWC10: Motorola Quench Cliq XT (ex-Zeppelin) announced

The only new phone that Motorola announced at MWC 2010 (until now, anyway) is the Motorola Quench, which will be known in the US as Motorola Cliq XT (launched by T-Mobile).

Previously appeared as Motorola Zeppelin, the Quench / Cliq XT is an Android 1.5 smartphone with MotoBlur. Let’s hope it will be updated soon to a newer version of Android – otherwise, it might not be able to quench users’ thirst for a modern OS.

The Motorola Quench / Cliq XT is the eighth Android device unveiled by Moto globally.

Its features include: 3.1 HVGA touchscreen display with pinch and zoom capabilities, a front navigation touchpad, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, E-compass, virtual QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth 2.0, 3.5mm headset jack, WebKit browser, Adobe Flash Lite, MicroSD card support, and a 5.0 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash. The phone measures 116.7 x 59.4 x 12.3 mm and has a 1420 mAh battery that should be able to provide a talk-time of up to 6.5 hours.

    Look for the CLIQ XT to ship in black and white colors, similar to the two designs offered for the CLIQ. Early photos of the CLIQ XT showed the device in white and the leaked roadmap shows it in black.

    No price point has been announced, but expect something similar to the current T-Mobile CLIQ which debuted at $199 with 2 year agreement and now sits at $149. Feeds: http://bit.ly/motorola-cliq-quench-view
