T-Mobile USA Launches Motorola CLIQ with MOTOBLUR In Stores Beginning Today
To Celebrate, T-Mobile Nationwide Contest Kicks Off to Find the Biggest College Clique
T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced the national availability of the Motorola CLIQ™ with MOTOBLUR™, the first Android™-powered device from Motorola and the only device to feature MOTOBLUR this holiday season. Beginning today, customers can now purchase the CLIQ in T-Mobile retail stores, partner locations and online at www.T-Mobile.com/CLIQ. To celebrate the CLIQ’s arrival in retail, T-Mobile also launched the T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ Challenge today, a nationwide contest to build the largest college fan club on Facebook®.
Available exclusively from T-Mobile, the CLIQ is a must-have mobile device as the only smartphone this season with MOTOBLUR, an innovative solution developed by Motorola that manages and integrates communications – from work e-mail to social networking activity. Updates to contacts, posts, messages, photos and more are streamed together and synced from sources including Facebook, Twitter™, MySpace®, Gmail™, work and personal e-mail, and automatically delivered to the home screen of the CLIQ in easy-to-view streams.“Smartphones are fast becoming the primary way many consumers engage with social networking services, e-mail and the Web, which makes the Motorola CLIQ with MOTOBLUR the right phone at the right time,” said Travis Warren, director, product marketing, T-Mobile USA. “T-Mobile continues to expand upon its industry-leading lineup of Android smartphones for the holiday season with the launch of the CLIQ, and we expect it to be very popular among our highly connected customers.”
T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ Challenge
Given the social power of the CLIQ, T-Mobile today also launches the T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ Challenge, a nationwide contest to ignite college pride by asking all passionate school supporters – students, alumni, fans and faculty – to build the largest Facebook fan club. Fans can visit www.facebook.com/tmobile to rally together and vote for the four-year college or university of their choice to win the ultimate grand prize.
The college or university with the highest number of votes in its clique by Nov. 30 will be awarded with an exclusive, free concert by the multi-platinum rock band Weezer, who release their new album Raditude tomorrow. In addition to the concert, T-Mobile will also award the winning school $1 for every vote up to $25,000 for collegiate enrichment.
