Touted as “the first phone with social skills,” Motorola'snew CLIQ smartphone is the company’s first Androidhandset. The CLIQ is headed to T-Mobile inthe fourth quarter, so it should be here in time for the holidays.

The CLIQ will utilize MOTOBLUR, which was also announcedtoday. MOTOBLUR is designed to sync contacts, posts, messages, photos, and muchmore from sources such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail, workand personal e-mail, and LastFM and automatically deliver it to the homescreen. Recognizing this is a lot of content, Motorola has organized thisinformation into easy-to-manage streams that are designed to help you spendless time managing your life and more time living it. The CLIQ is the first ofwhat will likely be many Motorola Android handsets that utilize MOTOBLUR.

Not only does MOTOBLUR organize all conversation threads,friend updates, stories, links, and photos, but it also keeps track of andsynchronizes all of your contact information between accounts. MOTOBLUR alsobacks up your information to a secure server and provides a means by which youcan remotely wipe the device should it become lost or stolen. Finally, MOTOBLURprovides the ability to use applications and widgets from MOTOBLUR, AndroidMarket, or from pre-loaded Google mobile services.

The CLIQ is a 3G and Wi-Fi capable smartphone that has a slide-out QWERTYkeyboard and a 3.1-inch HVGA touchscreen display. The handset has a 5 megapixelauto focus camera that is capable of capturing video at 24 frames per second.For audio playback, the CLIQ offers a 3.5mm headphone jack and a music playerwith pre-loaded Amazon MP3 store application. For storage, a pre-installed 2GBmicroSD memory card comes with the phone, though there’s support for up to 32GBof removable memory if you need additional storage.

Additional features of the CLIQ include multitaskingcapabilities and one-touch access to Google mobile services such as GoogleSearch by voice, Google Maps with Street View, YouTube,and Picasa. Support for various email accounts is supported by Exchange Server,Gmail, Yahoo!, Windows Live Hotmail, and many other POP3 and IMAP services. TheCLIQ also provides instant messaging support for Google Talk, AOL, Yahoo!Messenger, and Windows Live Messenger.

The CLIQ will come in two color options—Titanium and WinterWhite. Pricing information will be available closer to launch.
