Motorola's Quench marks company's eighth Android phone

The smartphone will be exclusively available through T-Mobile in the US and called the Cliq XT

Motorola released its eighth Android smartphone on Monday called the Quench or Cliq XT, which comes with a touchscreen and a virtual keyboard.

The phone is based on version 1.5 of Android and features Motorola's own Motoblur, which, for example, syncs e-mails, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter messages. On the software side there is support for Adobe Flash Lite, according to Motorola.

The Quench will be available in the first quarter of 2010, according to Motorola. In the U.S. the phone will be called Cliq XT and be available next month exclusively through T-Mobile USA. Motorola didn't provide details on other parts of the world where the Quench will become available. Pricing was not immediately available.

The Quench also features a music player that connects to the Web and social media networks, including TuneWiki and SoundHound, Motorola said.

The touchscreen on the Quench measures 3.1 inches and has a 320 x 480 pixels resolution. Other features include a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and a LED (Light-Emitting Diode) flash, A-GPS (Assisted-GPS), with turn-by-turn direction and voice-activated search.

It surfs the web using Wi-Fi or HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) at 7.2M bps.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
