Cliq 2 Passes US Patent Office, Makes Its Way To T-Mobile

Suffice to say we haven’t heard much about the Cliq 2 lately but a little magic from the US Patent and Trademark office and she is right back in the headlines. The last time we wrote about the Cliq 2 was back in September when anticipated launch date of November 1st has obviously come and gone. At this point, I hope any delay would be related to perhaps a dual core offering inside but that could just be wishful thinking. Even more wishful thinking would be that this device launches with Gingerbread and then finds its way to Honeycomb shortly thereafter though I won’t hold my breath.

      Really do you have to add politics in all this?? In any case of politics, Obama is better for this country than bush was and most certain was a better and more respectable candidate than John Mccain but Im not going to get into it. Just don’t bring politics where its irrelevant. If you dislike obama fine thats your opinion, but leave it out of non political areas!!

    hey now…let’s not shoot this down just yet. give it a chance to materialize. hopefully [keyword--hopefully] Cliq 2 comes with new, sturdier, sexier design the the droids. maybe 4plus inch screen…etc…etc…everything we may want spec-wise in a phone. let’s see if Moto wants to make a statement on T-Mobile in the wake of Verizon/iPhone debut rumors…! :)

    Haven’t we been subjected to enough subpar motorola cliq fair on tmobile, while verizon gets the best they have to offer? Cliq, cliq xt, cliq 2, where is our droid x?

    • Anonymous

      I think motorola has an exclusive contract with verizon or something for their high end phones. Sprint, AT&T , and Tmobile don’t have high end motorola’s. Even more HTC gives their highest end products to Sprint and Verizon, I guess when you pay more you get better specs. Although we do got some great HTC devices. The G2 and MT4G are probably the best HTC devices performance wise Evo can’t compare to the new devices.

      • Anonymous

        Well then tmobile needs to talk to motorola so we can get some better gear. I do like my mytouch 4g I do like the screen on my vibrant but no 4g is just bad, which is why I won’t get a nexus s. Let’s just hope like you said the LG Star is the super phone for tmobile we’ve been waiting for. Also tmobile has to realize if you have an awesome phone people will switch carriers to get that awesome phone. How many people are on at&t just for the iphone? How many people switched to sprint just for the evo? Nobody will leave their carrier for the cliq 2

  • Heavendehoff

        You might find it hard to believe, but not everyone shares your taste in phones. While the Cliq wasn’t my cup of tea, it actually was a great seller for T-Mobile and if the Cliq 2 comes with a more current spec sheet of hardware, it could do potentially very well. We are the .01% of cell phone users that crave more out of their cell phone. For the rest of the 99.99%, they don’t know the difference between Blur/Sense UI/Vanilla/TouchWiz..

        And just a FYI, if you’re going to diss someone, who said nothing but they couldn’t wait for a device and enjoyed their old one, at the LEAST use some proper grammar.. It’s YOU’RE not your, you idiot.

    I had a Cliq once not doing that again worst phone I’ve ever had. We got 2.1 when phones were getting 2.2. Rule of thumb if new phones come with current standard Android OS (ex. Android 2.1) don’t buy, best guess is go for gingerbread! Motorola is dead last on OS updates so don’t bother… stupid MotoBlur.

      Are you referring to on TMO? My bro in laws Droid X got updated to 2.2 pretty damn fast. The Droid X has Motoblur.

    Hate my cliq. Only good thing about the Cliq that I absolutey love is the music player. The connected music player is amazing. I LOVE it. Other than that its a crappy device, with terrible processing, on a piss poor network thats spottier than a dalmatian. NO THX motorola. Ill wait for a phone that actually will be reliable. Oh and btw, this might be weird, but my mom and sister have the vibrant and they seem to get 3g when my cliq is on edge? cool huh?

    • Anonymous

      I liked the cliq while i had it…then the Nexusone came along….haha. It would’ve been nice if TMO got the Droid/Milestone back when it was hott

    • Anonymous

      Set your cliq to 3G only under network settings and you’ll find 3G where you didn’t before. The auto skews too heavily towards edge for battery savings.

  • Tito!

    I will be buying this. (Well, specs pending.)
    I enjoyed my CLIQ .
    Sure, it was cursed by insufficient upgrade, but I mean hey what can you do with minimum requirements.
    I’m sure Motorola means to get this one right.
    I’m just a fan of MotoBLUR. (:

      Really anything but Motorola my sister had the cliq the build quality was absolutely horrible. The damn thing is so fragile. Of course speaking of when you drop it your screen goes out automatically.

      • Garet

        HA HA Samsung quality?? I had my VIbrant replaced 4 times due to their quality. GPS never fixed on any of the phones.2 were broke outta the box one had a visible line down the screen the other would randomly pull up the menu like someone was pushing it repeatedly. so I just bought the MyTouch 4G great so far no problems. Also wife has a cliqXT no problems with it except its not upgraded but same goes for the Vibrant

      • Axel14

        That is by far the dumbest thing i have ever heard someone say. Samsung is horrible in everyway except for its screen.

    Bottom line; it’s still a Motorola. What more do you need to know?

  • Anonymous

    I’m not interested in it because the MyTouch 4G I have is awesome. One thing i’m curious about is if it will have HSPA +. I think at this stage in the game Tmobile shouldn’t release anymore phones without it. They need to push it hard considering they have beaten 2 out of the 4 carriers to the punch.

    The CLIQ is actually a decent phone only marred by some flaws. It was their first Android phone, cut them some slack.

    If they add a 5 row keyboard with the same concave keys, a bigger screen (3.7″ MIN.), legendary Moto reception, Android 2.2, and decent hardware like the snappy OMAP 3630 in the DEFY there would be no reason to not pick it up. HTC doesn’t do it for everyone, folks. Neither does stock Android. The G2 would be nice if it wasn’t a brick with a terrible hinge and poor reception.

    • tmobeast

        Have you seen it? No.

        The CLIQ had it’s problems but I still liked my CLIQ. The digitizer was horrible, and 1.5 is hard to forgive but I have the DEFY right now and it’s way more appealing than the myTouch 4G and better in some respects.

          You have to recognize you are in the minority. The Cliq is a fairly despised phone. I work for T-Mo, and I know not to trust any Moto product they make for us. Updates are delayed and buggy when they arrive, the actual build quality is in the toilet, and they haven’t made anything truly impressive for T-Mo since… never.

      Actually, I have GREAT reception with my G2, and I like the hinge. If the CLIQ 2 has less than a Qualcomm 800, it won’t be worth picking up. I’m quite unimpressed with the speed of the DEFY. It’s only selling point is its durrability, and nothing else. Motoblur is horrible. If I had a DEFY, I’d have to root it and get a non-motoblur rom installed.

      • Anonymous

        If there was such a thing as a stock rom it would be garbage. Stop running your mouth about stuff you have no clue on. The G2 has horrible reception, radio problems and you didn’t SERIOUSLY tell me that the G2 has a “Qualcomm 800″, WTF is that?

    I bet that the Cliq 2 will have just about the same body but with a first gen Snapdragon and a FFC. The only real shocker would be if they make it a “4G” phone. Not that I care either way cuz I wouldn’t touch a TMO-MOTO even if it was free on a 1 year contract

  • Ultimate Darkness X

    I love all the complaints about the Cliq and possibility of a Cliq 2. The fact remains that if you don’t like the phone and/or don’t like MotoBlur, then just zip it and go after your wonderful G2 and myTouch 4G. Yeah the phone had a lot of problems but you never know what they may have done to correct that.

    I have had the Cliq for a year now and have enjoyed using the phone. The only thing that has sucked a little bit was after the 2.1 update, it runs a little slower now. I have dropped the phone many times and it has never stopped working for me, never broken.

    I actually look forwards to this and hope they would come out with this device sooner than later because I am about to get the G2 near the end of the month and depending on the specs on this device, I would most certainly consider it.

    • http://twitter.com/Wicked_1 Ronnae Dominique

      The G2′s specs aren’t good enough for me to re-new with T Mobile for another 2 years. I still have a lil under a year left from my “upgrade” to the Cliq, last October.

    They better do something special to win over T-Mobile consumers burnt by the Cliq and the Cliq XT. Because those phones had “some” issues. And I don’t know if Motorola will drop anything decent with T-Mo due to how high their noses are jammed up that red-headed monster networks ass.

    I’m waiting for a Cliq replacement right now, my 1st one. I had my initial unit for over a year. I’m not f*cking with Motorola anymore, haha, or any other custom UI. They give TMo the low end phones and take too long to update. I would only think about buying from them if its a Droid X type phone without Motoblur, obviously its the Cliq 2, so it will have Motoblur, but get what I mean.
