February 15, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola has lifted the wraps off its eighth Android smartphone. Christened the Quench (a.k.a. Cliq XT), the new handset runs the version 1.5 of Android and is expected to be available for you to pick up by the first quarter of 2010 itself. To be known as Cliq XT in the US telecom market place, the handset will be launched on the T-Mobile USA market by next month .

Complete with a touchscreen and a virtual keyboard, the Quench would boast of Motorola’s Motoblur feature, which would help sync e-mails, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter messages.

Connectivity is taken care of by Wi-Fi or HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) at 7.2M bps. The maker has also thrown in the Adobe Flash Lite on its bid to make web browsing smooth on its 3.1″ high-resolution display. A very pocket-friendly design, plus the Swype feature that makes responding to messages easier than ever, come as new additions. If you are someone who loves your music, the Motorola Quench will let you connect to the audio files with a new style of media player that would allow for instant download from an MP3 store.

Other features include a 5.0 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, voice-activated search, aGPS and stereo Bluetooth1. All we need to find out now is the pricing. Stay tuned.
