The phone features the company’s new Motoblur technology which syncs contacts, posts, messages, photos and  the like from sources such as social networking sites and email, automatically delivering it to the home screen.

“With Motoblur, we are differentiating the Android experience for consumers by delivering a unique mobile device experience designed around the way people interact today,” said Sanjay Jha, co-CEO of Motorola and CEO of Motorola Mobile Devices. “Motoblur, which will be available on our first Android-powered device and on multiple Android devices in our upcoming portfolio, helps us to create phones that are instinctive, social and smart.”

In the US, Motorola Cliq with Motoblur will be available exclusively through T-Mobile by the end of the year. Elsewhere, it comes through Orange in the UK and France, Telefonica in Spain and America Movil in Latin America.

Another Android phone should be coming soon.
