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.
The new Android smartphone will be available as Motorola Quench in Europe (starting Q1 2010), and as Motorola Cliq XT via T-Mobile USA (starting March). The handset’s price was not announced.
