Motorola is intent on offering the CLIQ to other wireless carriers other than T-Mobile
Sleeping giants are bound to wake up eventually and cause some stir to their surroundings. Will this look to be the year of Motorola's return to the pinnacle of wonder in the mobile world? From the looks of it so far, T-Mobile will be the first stop to Motorola's push with the Android powered CLIQ. It may also be Android's year with many manufacturers putting out devices relatively soon – some utilizing slick personalization. Motorola's CEO, Sanjay Jha, announced recently that the company is “in talks with all large operators in the US” about getting their Android powered handset to them. It's certain that Verizon will be the next stop for them with the Sholes finally giving Big Red a new addition to the the much deprived Android lineup. From there on, we're hopeful that AT&T and Sprint getting the same grace some time down the road. It could definitely turn out to be the year of Hello Moto once again if everything falls into place.

YAY!!! This phone looks bad! I don't care for T-Mo, and I would love to see this on different networks! Moto may finally be making a turn around!

WHY! Why it be an exclusive phone to T-mobile? Sprint does it! Verizon does it! At&t does it! They should make it exclusive to T-mobile for 2 years or more cause it would give T-mobile more subscribers!

Come on don't be that way. T mobile has ALL the Android phones as of now. Let everyone have a few as well.

I figure Moto knows that everyone else is hungry for an Android device, and if they make one available to other carriers, they'll have a greater chance at 'banking' ... that or Moto is just a dam cool company. I've been waiting for Android on at&t, and was hoping for the Hero, but since Sprint's getting it, and I have yet to see a US 3G unlocked version, CLIQ may be the closest thing, though I'm not a fan of Moto...
