Motorola Bionic & Cliq2 Android Smartphones Revealed at CES

January 6, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola utilized the maximum of its CES 2011 podium space to unveil two new devices. The two new phones, christened Bionic and Cliq 2, closely followed the showcasing of the Atrix 4G shown a tad earlier.  While the Bionic is likely to reach customers’ hands by early spring on Verizon, the Cliq 2 will come early – you just have to wait till January 19 to get your hands on it.

Bionic is being offered as Motorola’s first LTE phone, and could bring about data up to 10 times faster than 3G hardware. This will bank much on Verizon’s network, and considering Verizon’s capabilities we have no reason top disbelieve the claim to be true.

As is the case with Atrix 4G, the Bionic will hide under the hood an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core chip. Other features include a front camera that enables video chat. The device comes with a fairly wide screen of 4.3 inches, but then the RAM has been torn down to 512MB.

Apart from the Android 2.2 running the device, the company has also thrown in its own Blur interface too. Motorola has also thrown in Quickoffice too into the device.

Videos can play at 1080p, and this would be possible in both phone and TV mode. The feature comes thanks to a native HDMI output incorporated.

Meanwhile, the second device named Cliq 2 Android phone holds within itself a 1GHz processor. Motorola has added Honeycomb keyboard too, that comes with properties that would let it snip the distance between keys without affecting typing.

The Cliq 2 comes with a 3.7-inch display and a five megapixel camera. Likely to hop on to the T-Mobile carrier network, the device supports both Wi-Fi calling and 3G hotspots.

Pricing is what we are looking at now, and we expect the company to let out details of the Cliq 2 price first factor in a few days from now.
