At CES yesterday, Motorola and T-Mobile took the wraps off of the previously rumored Cliq 2. The device features a 3.7" screen, 5MP camera, runs Android 2.2, Froyo and is powered by a 1GHz processor. It is the direct successor to the original Cliq, a device that many customers are still angry about due to Motorola's lack of updates.
The Cliq 2 is notably thinner and more powerful than the first one, and early reports indicate that the keyboard is nice to use, if a bit cramped. It will be available on T-Mobile this Sunday, January 9, so we can expect full blown reviews to be arriving shortly.
And almost immediatly following Motorola's announcement of the Xoom, T-Mobile and LG announced that they, too would be releasing a Honeycomb tablet called the G-Slate. It will feature T-Mobile's 4G HSPA+ connectivity, but aside from that, absolutely zero details are known. No word of a WiFi only version, so it's likely safe to assume that this device will be locked to T-Mobile.
T-Mobile is holding a press event today at CES at 2pm, so we will likely hear more about the G-Slate later today.
