I just got finished posting Todd Haselton’s review of the T-Mobile branded Motorola CLIQ XT on MobileBurn.com. Todd likes the device in general, and thinks it has more going for it than “a CLIQ without a keyboard” would seem to suggest. I agree.

You’ll find the full CLIQ XT review here.
I’ve added a small gallery after the jump.
Another of our MobileBurn compatriots, Todd Haselton, has put together a video of the new Motorola CLIQ XT for T-Mobile USA that he’s currently reviewing. The CLIQ XT is very much like an original CLIQ that has lost its keyboard and gained a new touchpad controller and camera flash.
Good news for Canadians on Wednesday as Motorola announced that it is bringing three MOTOBLUR handsets to Canada with all the major wireless carriers.

If you need a refresher on each handset, check out our video reviews of the [...]
I spent a bit of time with the new Motorola QUENCH / CLIQ XT here in Barcelona. Below is the video I shot of the device, but if you want to see the pile of photos as well as my thoughts on the changes from the CLIQ, read my full Motorola CLIQ XT gallery story on MobileBurn.com.
Earlier today we reported on the official unveiling of the mystery Motorola phone previously known as the Zeppelin. Now being called the CLIQ XT/Quench, Engadget has been lovely enough to shoot a video for us on the new device. Showing off Motoblur, which seems to be a love/hate relationship with users right now the phone has a solid look to it and interchangeable backs allowing for user customization. The screen looks very responsive and the OS is running seen running smoothly.
A detail previously unknown is that the device comes preloaded with Swype text input which is a fantastic feature allowing users to draw lines to each key instead of tapping each individual key. It [...]
Motorola have gone all official on the device codenamed Zeppelin, recently announcing it as the Motorola Cliq XT in America and the Motorola Quench everywhere else. The Cliq XT is a fairly good looking device and offers everything one would expect of a mid to high-end smartphone device.
The highlights include a 3.1-inch touchscreen high resolution display (expected to be 480 x 320 pixels) along with pinch and zoom muilti-touch capabilities. There is also a 5MP camera offering auto focus and LED flash, as well as a navigation touchpad and a dual-mic noise cancellation system.
