T-Mobile has shipped their first round of Motorola Cliq units to all the big sites and reviews started popping up today. I hope that one day we can be one of the elite sites and provide our readers with early reviews. Our traffic is exploding, but we are not quite in the Top 100 blogs yet (We rank 234. Thanks guys!).
I’ve read all the reviews and the general consensus is that the Cliq is a solid Android phone, but it is hampered by the same sluggish processor as the G1. Unfortunately, the Cliq also ships with Android 1.5 which is now outdated. The Cliq can receive OTA updates, so I expect T-Mobile will roll one out soon after launch.
We won free Cliq phones at the recent Motodev Summit, so it will most likely be my new daily phone for the next couple of months until the Snapdragon phones begin to ship. Be on the lookout for our in-depth review.
In case you missed it, users can win a free Cliq phone by registering for updates on T-Mobile’s site, pre-orders will begin shipping on October 19, 2009, and the no contract price of the Cliq is $449.99.
