Motorola CLIQ XT

Owners of the Motorola CLIQ XT should be able to enjoy an over-the-air update that became available last night, but it’s not the upgrade to Android 2.1 that users are eagerly waiting for. Motorola expects Éclair to hit the CLIQ XT in early Q4, and it couldn’t come a moment too soon, considering the device still runs the obsolete Android 1.5.

Nonetheless, this maintenance release seems to bring quite a few nice improvements and additions, including enhanced overall phone performance, a more  sensitive touchscreen and Swype preinstalled. Here’s the official changelog:

Overall Phone Performance

Users will notice a significantly improved overall performance and responsiveness to input requests, including: opening applications, answering calls, opening the Happenings widget, and downloading attachments and pictures within email

Additional Stability

Improved stability, resulting in fewer occurrences of unresponsiveness and/or programs quitting unexpectedly

Bluetooth® Performance

Improved performance and connectivity with other Bluetooth devices

Messaging

Prevents erroneous notifications that a message has not been sent. Also resolves MMS sending / receiving functionality issues in certain scenarios

Touchscreen

Improved touch screen sensitivity and touch response

SWYPE® Keyboard

Includes updates to the latest version of the SWYPE software, resulting in improved overall performance of the application
