Hands-on with the Motorola Cliq 2

If you loved the the Motorola Cliq, you'll love the Cliq 2. The latest entry-level Android smartphone on T-Mobile is one of those quality entry-level phones that we're so keen on these days.

It's got a proper horizontal slider keyboard. The keys are a little scrunched together, but that's on purpose. It has a bit of that honeycomb (as in bees, not Android OS) feel to it, but it's not as pronounced as we'd seen in leaked photos.

The OS (Android 2.2) is plenty snappy atop a 1GHz processor. You'll be able to snag this guy Jan. 19. Price hasn't been set yet. Couple more pics after the break.
