Motorola CLIQ being served up with fresh firmware

Chris Ziegler

Don't get too excited -- this isn't Android 2.1, unfortunately, but it is another stab at making the CLIQ stable and usable. We speak from personal experience when we say that Motorola's first Android device has a tendency to bog down and do strange things, so we're pretty excited to see what this latest update does for users since it's promising (among other things) improved battery life, stability, touchscreen accuracy, widget response, and a reduction in unsightly "Force Close" messages. It also throws in support for WMV and WMA media for good measure -- and with the myTouch Slide seemingly around the corner, competition's about to heat up for this guy, so there's definitely some pressure to get this particular update bang-on.
