Cliq Hits Ebay

Do you find yourself dreaming of the Cliq at night, or even during the day?  Then do we have a deal for you.  You can skip the pre-sale and official sales dates by going the shady route and bid for one on Ebay.  Now, there will be a generous markup applied, for the seller’s trouble and all, so don’t expect this to go cheap.  The 100% positive feedback seller is estimating a $1000 … [read full article]

Cliq Preview

While we wait patiently for the pre-order date (which is just over two weeks away, in case you were wondering) you may want to take a gander at more images of the Cliq.  What we have here is the blue version (funny, I thought that went to the wayside) of the Cliq.  Mobile Review couldn’t get into the software because there is no place to sign up for a Motorola ID… yet.  Head on over … [read full article]
