T-Mobile Motorola Cliq 2 leaks, may launch on January 19
One of T-Mobile’s upcoming Android smartphones has leaked. This is the Motorola Cliq 2, obviously intended to be a successor to the original Cliq. It will presumably be announced during CES next week, and may be in stores for you to buy as soon as January 19.
The codename for this device is Begonia, which means that it probably should have already been available, if we are to believe past leaks of T-Mobile’s roadmap.
The Cliq 2 comes with a full side-sliding QWERTY keyboard, a 5 MP camera with LED flash, Bluetooth 2.1, aGPS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, and a new version of MotoBlur, Motorola’s traditional UI and social networking overlay for Android. Wi-Fi calling support isn’t confirmed, but may be in there too. This also may be the first HSPA+ device from Motorola, as T-Mobile will be focusing a lot on what it is calling ’4G’ in 2011.
The Cliq 2′s keyboard, as you can see from the pictures, is rather unique, looking like a honeycomb. It’s unclear at this point which version of Android the Cliq 2 will be running when it launches, but here’s hoping that it will be Gingerbread.
