T-Mobile shipping Cliq early for pre-orders

Update (9/30): T-Mobile USA confirmed to us that customers who preorder on October 19 will have the phone in their hands several days later.

T-Mobile issued a press release today which announced the official launch date and pricing of the Motorola Cliq. The phone will be available in stores nationwide and online beginning Nov. 2 for $199.99 to eligible customers with a two-year agreement.

The most interesting part of the press release was the following note:

Devices ordered during pre-sale will be shipped to customers as orders are received and will include a complimentary car charger.

As we reported earlier, the pre-sale begins October 19 and runs through November 1, 2009. This means that customers who pre-order will receive the phone weeks in advance. There is no official word what the phone will cost without a contract, but I’m guessing it will $399 for those of us ineligible for an upgrade discount.
