Orange Motorola DEXT hands-on [Video]

Archos' new PMP isn't the only Android gadget SlashGear has been playing with recently. Last night saw the launch of the European version of Motorola's first Android smartphone, the Motorola DEXT. Debuted last week as the Motorola CLIQ in the US, the QWERTY slider smartphone is set to arrive exclusively on Orange in the UK and France; so far all the carrier has said is "early October", but SlashGear was told that the official release date is somewhere between the 5th and the 9th of October.

Motorola CLIQ and MOTOBLUR review

Motorola CLIQ and MOTOBLUR review

As Motorola have found over the past couple of years, it's taking an increasing amount to get geeks and gadget lovers to stand up and pay attention to a new cellphone. Right now, one sure-fire way of doing that is by launching an Android device, and so that's what the ailing mobile giant has done in the shape of the Motorola CLIQ (aka the DEXT outside of the US). Not only does the CLIQ promise to make a splash among Android handsets, it also marks the debut of Motorola's attempt to corral social networking into a mobile device. In our review we'll not only be looking at the CLIQ hardware, as Motorola's first-generation Android smartphone, but at MOTOBLUR and its potential beyond the CLIQ. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

We doubt we're the only people who forgot that Motorola had thrown their oar in with the LiMo Foundation, but happily we'll unlikely to need that knowledge again since the company is seemingly dropping its support for the open-source mobile platform.  Motorola VP Christy Wyatt has vacated her seat on the LiMo Foundation board, while the company itself has downgraded its membership from "founding member" to "associate member".

"At this time it feels that the Android platform gives it a richer, more consistent foundation with strong support for the ecosystem and developer community" Motorola statement

T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ preorders taken from October 19th

Back when people were desperate to get their hands on the first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1, a pre-order event seemed a reasonable way to stoke the hype.  Now that we're a few models down the line, T-Mobile USA's pre-announcement for a pre-order of the Motorola CLIQ smacks vaguely of desperation.  As of October 19th, existing customers of the carrier will be able to order a CLIQ for $199.99 with a new two-year agreement, though they won't actually get their new phone until November 2nd when it goes on sale generally.
