Motorola brings out the CLIQ 2 – merges corporate features with social networking

By on

Motorola has announced some brand new phones out at its CES 2011 press conference – including its successor to the CLIQ (DEXT outside of the US), titled the CLIQ 2. The phone will feature a 3.7-inch touchscreen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and as the leaks foretold, it will have a honeycomb-inspired layout for the keyboard.

The phone will not only be on the 3G network, but will be part of Motorola’s first line of 4G-enabled phones. It will also feature a 1GHz processor and will run on Android 2.2 with Moto BLUR. The phone, however, isn’t a radical departure to the CLIQ, with similar features as the previous phone. However, the phone will also add in corporate features, such as LinkedIn integration, and remote location and remote wipe – even on SD cards – features for corporate users.

The CLIQ 2 will be on the T-Mobile network in the US, and on its 4G network in selected areas, on January 19. International availability has not been announced as of yet.
