New Phone: Motorola CLIQ
Wow, so Android phones are just falling out of the sky. Here’s another for your enjoyment!
The new Motorola CLIQ will be sold on T-Mobile in time for the holidays. It has the following hardware features:
- 3.1″ screen with 320 x 480 pixels
- Slide out keyboard
- 5.0MP Camera (no flash sadly)
But what is really interesting is to see what Motorola is doing with their own UI. Personally I think this is going to be what makes Android all powerful, deep UI customization by manufacturers (and 3rd parties someday?).
The UI is very clique oriented (they are clever aren’t they?). On the homepage you have a jumble of feeds that you can have connected to all different types of social networks; Facebook and MySpace, etc. The name of this UI is MotoBlur and here is some of it’s features:
- Customizable home screen with Happenings, Status and Messaging widgets
- Messaging with Facebook, MySpace and Twitter Direct Messaging
- Address book synchs personal and work contacts, and connected social networks
- Caller ID shows caller’s name, number, status and profile pic
- Photosharing in MySpace, Photobucket, Picasa, Facebook
As always, a video really says it better, doesn’t it?
