Android has proven to be huge in the smartphone market and has helped more than one phone maker grab a new share of the smartphone market. Motorola was hurting prior to Android with no significantly popular handsets to speak of, but Android has changed that.
Motorola announced a new Android device today that will ship around the world and be known as the Quench overseas and the Cliq XT here in America. The handset has a 3.1-inch touchscreen that supports pinch and zoom gestures. The device also uses the Motoblur UI.
An onscreen QWERTY keyboard is integrated and it has a touch pad on the front of the phone for navigation. A 5MP camera is built-in with autofocus and LED flash. Other features include 3G connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth, and aGPS. The device will ship in Q1 2010.
