MWC 2010: Live Report
Meet the Motorola CLIQ XT …. or the Motorola QUENCH. Moto again has used two different names for its new model, the first one is for the US market (where it will launch with T-Mobile USA) and the other is for Europe. Both should become available as soon as next month.
The key feature of the CLIQ XT is that it does NOT have a QWERTY keyboard. It is very similar to the CLIQ and BACKFLIP (same Android OS version, same MOTOBLUR interface) but is a slimmer candybar phone. In order to offer a better typing experience, it incorporates Swype – instead of pressing each letter, you press the first and then swipe your finger through the others. We’ve seen this solution before and whether it is better than a standard keyboard or not is depending on the person using it.
Other software updates are similarly basic. The CLIQ XT (QUENCH) supports Flash Lite, pinch zooming and an improved multimedia player. In addition to music playback one can find similar songs, lyrics, get info for the music playing or check out the hot songs in the US or the World.
In a nutshell, the CLIQ XT is a keyboard-less slimmer version of the previous MOTOBLUR models that has almost no improvements.

WTF.... How do you go to talking about Samsung Wave which is a BADA OS phone on a Windows Article???? I just watched two vidoes on this OS and it is amazing..... Can't wait for this to come out later this year.... Might be switching from my Droid back to WinMo

Broken, It isn't fair to yell at galen. This string of updates is numbered 1-7 so far and WinMo7 is the last, as of right now. So if you want to post on any of the previous pages, it shows up here under 7. I am sure the next update on page 8, will have people confused as to why yuo are talking aboutt a WinMo7 series topic for something else... That being said. I am excited for the WM7 series to be released. I have been waiting (as elig to upgrade by extending my contract) since february of last year(2009). I am pretty sure VZW hates me for not being under contract. But I want a "worth it to me" upgrade. This would be worth it. I am sad it won'y come out until november of this year, as my phone is on its last leg. I want a WinMo phone with a snapdragon, tegra, and 512 ram.... HD2 or TG02

Nice point on that. Not something I noticed. Phone Arena must fix this :-)

Oh and btw, a buddy of mine who works for MS, said it should be out sometime in September to compete with anything Apple or Google puts out. So I'll be exicted to see what is going to happen. :-)

competition is good for everyone. it took this long for MS to wake up and quit trying to pawn the same 1990's crap on us. maybe this will be a new life for MS. Im going to be cautious. Sticking with android till MS can show me that its better.. for the longhaul as well. Its hard to beat an open development platform that can change to any manufacturers desire.

Does the Dell Mini 5 have an OLED/AMOLED screen?

I was expecting sooooooooo much more from the VPhone, namely video chat based on what they were talking about in November.
