Motorola 'Begonia' is T-Mobile's Cliq 2, features WiFi calling?

Chris Ziegler

We've been tossed a few scraps of information in the past few hours on T-Mobile's upcoming Cliq 2 -- codenamed "Begonia" -- and though we don't know much, what we do know is enough to be a little excited about. Here's what we've got:

  • Android 2.2 with Blur
  • Keyboard design is said to be "interesting" -- in a good way -- described as "one solid piece" without any gaps between keys. The Cliq's is pretty decent, and with both the myTouch 3G Slide and G2 in the mix now, they've got a lot to live up to
  • 3G hotspot support, something the G2 will lack at launch
  • WiFi calling, which we've heard a little about recently
Word is that the Cliq 2 is slated for a November 1 launch, though it's not clear how it'll be positioned -- if we had to venture a shot-in-the-dark guess, it'd be priced to go head to head with the myTouch 3G Slide. More on this just as soon as we get it!
