Motorola Cliq XT priced at $129.99 on contract with T-Mobile ($329.99 outright)

2

We brought you the first pictures of the official Android-MotoBLUR powered T-Mobile-branded Cliq XT, and now we have pricing information to go along with it. Looks like the Cliq XT will be going for $129.99 on contract (that's the U.S.-standard 2-year deal plus whatever rebates may be thrown in), and a very respectable $329.99 off-contract.

Now all we need is the dates the Cliq XT is going to be released. But it can't be far off. [via TMoNews]

And speaking of the Nexus One ...

13

It'll be a cold day in hell before you catch an executive talking bad about their product. Case in point: Google CFO Patrick Pichette, who was talking up the Nexus One at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference in San Francisco.

At the event, Pichette called the Nexus One "a benchmark-setter" and said "It's raising everybody's game." Such cheerleading is expected from a CFO, but he reportedly also said that the mood at Google has been "electric" and "we're absolutely delighted with the results" of the Nexus One launch.

Either way, our forums guru Jeremy Sikora has put together an excellent guide on how to load custom ROMs onto the Nexus One. It's a must-read for anyone looking to get the most out of their device.

Monday Fun: Eric Schmidt Back in 1986

4

 

We've got a little bit of Monday fun for you guys. Here's a video of Eric Schmidt, Google CEO, way back in 1986. He's being interviewed because of a prank his workers pulled on him and it's just amazing to see young Schmitty in action. Aside from the general awesomeness of bulletproof glasses, wicked hairstyles, and a VW Bug, you can find glimpses of the Eric Schmidt we know today in the video--emphasizing his words with knowing glances, for example--but he spoke much faster and just seemed so, excited. fresh. enthused. Ah, it's good to be young.

hit the jump to see the video of Eric Schmidt, CEO of the Google, after the break!

Motorola offers some help for the borked Cliq update

0

If that borked update for the Motorola Cliq has kept you up nights, there's some relief in sight. The guys and gals at These Are The Droids got Moto to acknowledge there's been an issue, and a workaround has been identified. Said Moto:

Last week, the CLIQ 1.3.18 over-the-air software update began rolling out to consumers. While the vast majority of updates were successful, a very small number of consumers reported a date error and found that, after factory resetting their device, their phone was not functioning properly. We have identified a workaround solution for these consumer

Turns out there it was an issue with the over-the-air nature of the update. And if you're having issues, you can re-update through the SD card using these instructions. Good luck, and let us know how things worked out. [These are the Droids]

Motorola Cliq XT (aka the Zeppelin) spotted with T-Mobile branding

3

We're expecting the Motorola Cliq XT (see our hands-on and video hands-on from Mobile World Congress) on T-Mobile just about any time now (possibly March 10), and we're bringing you the first shots of it wearing its T-Mo branding. It's confirmed to have WiFi and is running Android 1.6 with MotoBLUR.

But one very cool trick that we somehow overlooked on the Cliq XT (aka the Quench outside the U.S., and the Zeppelin in its previous code name) is that the sides of the phone (outside the trackpad) pick up your touch as well, meaning you select apps and the like without using your thumb on the trackpad. Our tipster says that function ends about a third of the way up the device. Presumably, the Swype keyboard and doubleTwist apps are on board, too, given the recent deals with T-Mobile.

Three more pics of the Cliq XT after the break. Thanks, anon!

HTC's new Sense user interface ported to the Motorola Droid

1

It's hardly shocking, but HTC's new Sense user interface (read our review here) has been ported onto the Motorola Droid. It's still a little buggy, but damned if its not the same ROM (more or less) that was ripped off the HTC Desire and thrust upon the Nexus One. So stay tuned to this project if you're dead set on putting HTC's buttery smooth UI on top of Moto's bludgeon-you-to-death hardware, as this one's got legs, people.

Couple of blurry videos of the port in action after the break. [AllDroid via Engadget]

Adobe Flash is not coming to all Android phones [duh]

13

 

We've got some good news and some bad news about those waiting to receive Adobe Flash 10.1. The good news is that it's expected to be released on Android phones coming "mid year".  Now the bad news is that the HTC Hero will not be supported.

“The HTC Hero will not be supported [because] it does not have the correct Android OS version and its chipset is not powerful enough. We require a device an ARM v7 (Cortex) processor. Examples include the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and TI OMAP3 series.”

We've seen Flash being shown off already on the Droid and the Nexus One.  We already knew this was coming, given that Flash is a processor hog even on desktop systems, but thank you for stating the obvious. [androinica]
