Excerpt: Are you an active Web 2.0 socialite? Do you Twitter and Facebook (or whatever the verbal form of Facebook is)? If you are, the Motorola Cliq is for you. This first Android phone from the company that invented the cellphone aggregates all your social networking accounts and contacts and delivers updates right to the home screen in ways both intuitive, clever and potentially overwhelming.
Pros: Google Android OS; MOTOBLUR aggregates social network, texting and e-email accounts; slide-out horizontal keyboard; 5 MP camera
Cons: Heavy and bulky; message windows obscure screen; no camera flash; 3-line (rather than 4-line) QWERTY keypad
Summary: The $199 Motorola Cliq is a top-notch Android device, and is our favorite smart phone on T-Mobile, beating out the similarly priced myTouch 3G. While the latter is lighter, the Cliq’s touch interface is more compelling. We also like the Cliq’s comfy physical keyboard, sharper camera (even though it lacks a flash), and better integration with your social networks. If you don’t need a full keyboard, the HTC Hero for Sprint is also a great buy.
Pros: Tight integration with social networks, Comfortable keyboard, Fast data speeds, Solid 5-MP camera, Robust backup service,
