When Motorola said that from the end of last year they are getting serious about Android, they really meant it. In about four months since the launch of their first Moto Cliq/Dext handset, Motorola now has 8 Android devices in its portfolio.
The latest handset, announced yesterday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona – is Motorola Quench or Cliq XT, as it will be known in U.S.
Motorola Quench is a nice, full touch Android device, headed for the competition in a mid range smartphone market. And it has some pretty decent specs, to do well there: HSDPA connectivity, 3.1” HVGA display, 5mpx camera, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, E-Compass, etc;
Motorola Quench is currently running on Android 1.5, and has Moto BLUR interface/service on top of it. The handset can be expected to get an upgrade to Android 2.1 eventually, whenever Motorola makes MotoBLUR compatible with it.
Here’s a quick hands-on video with Motorola Quench /Cliq XT:
Motorola Quench should be available both in Europe and U.S within a month.
