Motorola today announced its third MOTOBLUR Android phone, The Motorola Quench. Previously seen under the codename “Zeppelin,” the Quench will go on sale at T-Mobile USA as the CLIQ XT beginning next month.
The Quench has a 3.1″ screen, pinch-to-zoom browsing, and Adobe Flash Lite. The all-touchscreen phone will have a touchpad in place of a trackball and features dual microphones with noise cancellation technology to improve call quality. Also present is a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash.
The Quench/CLIQ XT It is the first phone with Motorola’s integrated communication service MOTOBLUR that doesn’t have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. However, it will be one of the first phones to take advantage of T-Mobile USA’s deal to have the Swype virtual keyboard pre-installed on its devices.
