CES 2011 was full of high-end phones, but tucked into the mix was a little gem in the Motorola Cliq 2. The follow-up to T-Mobile's original Cliq, the Cliq 2 sports a redesigned keyboard, 3.7-inch touchscreen, 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM and a 5MP camera with flash, all controlled by Android 2.2 Froyo.

The specs don't quite put the Cliq 2 among the best of the best (of we know is coming, anyway). But it's a solid phone on a solid network. Full review's on the way. In the meantime, enjoy the hands-on, and hit up the Cliq 2 Forums for more.

Pretty sweet. Surprising this is a mid level phone its a last years top notch phone :) sweet deal. Moto's not that blurry ;)

CeluGeek says:

The homescreen has the same lag as my Intercept readjusting items when opening or closing the hardware keyboard. Blur is really weighting the Cliq 2 down!

Have you noticed that video reviews have been getting really bad here and everywhere? Maybe, it's just me.

I like the specs. They seem to be a little better that N1 (out of the box wifi N, FM radio, battery, internal mem.).

Good thing this is a hands-on and not a review.

Mariodroid says:

I'm sorry. I meant to say hands-on.

LiquidAppo says:

What exactly do you think has gotten worse about them? They all kind of seem the same as they ever have to me.

KingAndroid says:

Wow. 3G Mobile Hotspot. Even tmo can admit HSPA+ is not technically 4G.

LiquidAppo says:

This phone doesn't do HSPA+.

kaerfree says:

Even with hsdpa the phone will still work with speeds up to 7.2mbps like the original cliq with is still pretty darn fast.
