Lose phone, find it with integrated GPS, remotely wipe data from online portal, but data is stored on Motoblur servers, rivaling mobileme?

    what is confirmed for 4Q? Moto Click, Blackberry 9700, what else?

  • Pedro

    Hell yes!! Glad I didn’t get a MyTouch 3g, I like the keyboard on this, and everything else, lol.

  • dave

    Does the phone multi-task and is the screen capacitive?

  • joel

    Hot damn! I’m impressed, Motorola. This is definitely my next phone. It seems like it blows T-Mo’s flagship myTouch 3G right out of the water! Should have let HTC put in Sense UI, T-Mo. Live and learn :P

  • artiepants

    “The First Phone with Social Skills” is a terrible tagline, but i am intruiged by the concept.

    now, as asked above, capacitive or resistive?!!?!?!

  • Pedro

    @ joel

    Same here.

  • artiepants

    no give us a $70 all-you-can-eat plan like Sprint dropped, and we’ll be talkin’

  • branon

    What is the processor speed on this phone?

  • JB6464

    What size screen is on this phone ?

  • Kanjar Ro

    Go here for specs…
    http://developer.motorola.com/products/handsets/cliq/

    256KB RAM, 512 ROM and 528mhz processor.

  • Kanjar Ro

    to put into perspective:

    G1 =
    528Mhz processor
    192KB RAM
    256 ROM

    And I’m not 100% sure, but I thought the myTouch was dumbed down to the same specs as the G1?

    All I know is I want my Android, but I want it on something faster than the G1!

  • Tony

    @ Kanjar Ro

    You took the words right out of my brain with your comment on the processor speeds.

  • Ritchie

    I love it, beats the Pre from sprint, but i agree with artiepants, Its great, im glad i didnt get the mytouch i did get the highlight but i can give that to my wife, but what will keep me in TMo besides the phones is no family data plan. For individual its fine but im not paying $75 w/o tax, and without individual tax per line, people look at you bill. You get taxed for the whole plan, then you get taxed more per line. How can you tax my bundle then tax me more for every individual line i have? Im getting tired of this and i will go move to a nother carrier, im looking at sprint, ATT and Verizon for the data family packs.

  • JB6464

    The specs still don’t state what size the screen is. It looks like a 3″ or 3.25″size to me.

  • JB6464

    It still does’nt tell the screen size in the spec sheet. It looks like a 3″ or 3.25″ size to me.

  • bastage

    Not impressed.. Its got a fancy user interface for social networking.. So if I was 16 I would probably be all over it.. Other then that the keyboard is crap, & its just a little bit prettier G1. Nothing groundbreaking if you have already gone through puberty..

  • carlos

    @bastage

    agreed. that was my first thought after seeing the whole “social phone” thingie. I dont think the phone looks all that bad but i cant help sensing that this one is by all means targeting the youth.

    i’m getting sick of waiting, tho. the mytouch isnt me, i dont think the n900 is gonna make it to tmobile (and if it does it wont be for a while), and that just leaves me the next blackberry thats supposedly due november. i got a freakin razr right now, dead ass. man.

    not hating on tmobile, though, for real. i just really want a new phone. and soon.

    Not to be a “Sidekick fanboy”, but the Sidekick already does the “social network” thing. Has for months now…Sure it’s not always “on”, but it definitely updates the communities on at least an hourly basis.

    I agree they coulda waited and made the Sidekick LX09 better…though it wouldn’t have saved the Sidekick brand since it was (is?) ‘behind the times’…Poor Sidekick. Ah well.
