Motorola Cliq 2 Images Surface

Remember back in late Sept when we mentioned that Motorola was cooking up a successor to it’s Moto Cliq, the Begonia?  Well, here you go folks.  The guys over at CellPhoneSignal managed to get exclusive pics of the Motorola Cliq 2, and it certainly looks promising.  The device will sport a full qwerty slide out, 5 MP camera with LED flash, support for Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, the latest version of the Moto Blur UI and some new widgets.  In addition, there is a possibility that this device will ship with WiFi calling capabilities.  Let me hear all of you previous UMA users say “oh yeah baby!”  And even though WiFi calling is not the same as UMA (no handover to cell site), it’s still an excellent feature to have.  Hit the break for more info and exclusive pics of the Cliq 2, courtesy of CellPhoneSignal.

From the looks of the pic, it appears that the keyboard has a particular and uncommon style to it.  It appears to look like a honeycomb, and lacks any type of spacing between keys.  It’s still unclear as of now whether or not the device will ship with Froyo 2.2 or Gingerbread 2.3, but here’s hoping for the latter.  Furthermore, there is also speculation that this might be an HSPA+ compatible phone.  It looks like the Cliq 2 is slated to be released on January 19th.  Let us know what you think about the device in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    the device looks great, not absolutely my type but, I like the design, I just hate using phones with physical keyboards.

    After using the Cliq “1″, I will not touch anything with the word Cliq on it.
