Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 01 Oct 2009 11:41

Motorola Cliq gets date, price T-Mobile has announced that the much anticipated Motorola Cliq Android phone will indeed go on pre-sale on October 19th, and will officially be on sale November 2nd.
The phone will cost $199.99 USD with two-year new contract or upgrade, adds the carrier.

"T-Mobile customers text message and access social messaging on mobile devices more than those of any other carrier,"
added Wendy Pinero DePencier, vice president of brand marketing, T-Mobile USA. "That's why we're excited to give them the first opportunity to purchase the CLIQ, and then in early November offer the CLIQ prominently at T-Mobile stores nationwide in time for the holidays."

The company recently announced 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, although there is no set roadmap for those releases yet.

The Cliq has 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5MP camera, and a 3.1-inch 480x360 resolution touchscreen as well as QWERTY keypad. Notably, the device is lacking the trackball found on most Android devices.
