And it's official. The Motorola CLIQ will launch on T-Mobile on November 2nd for $199.99. Pre-orders start October 19th and will run until November 1st. T-Mobile has a nice splash page that countdowns the days, hours, minutes and seconds left until you're able to pre-order the device.

The $199.99 price point for the CLIQ is definitely a bit higher than we expected, especially when the HTC Hero will be available for $179.99. We knew those 'free' rumors weren't feasible but we were expecting T-Mobile to competitively price the CLIQ to guarantee a winner. What do you guys think?
