Android Motorola Dext headed to Europe, South America On Thursday, Motorola unveiled their first Android phone, the Motorola Cliq, which is to sell in the US via T-Mobile.
The mobile phone company has announced today that the same phone, dubbed the Dext however, and with some subtle differences, will hit the UK via the carrier Orange beginning later this month as well, with pre-orders beginning on the 22nd.

The Dext will also be headed to South America and the rest of the EU, added the company, but just like with the US Cliq release, there is no set time table.

As is now standard, the phone has 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5MP camera, and a touchscreen as well as QWERTY keypad. Notably, the device is lacking the trackball found on most Android devices.

Official specs say the phone uses Android 1.5, but rumor has it the device will ship with 2.0, Google's upcoming promised firmware upgrade.
