Rumor: Motorola Begonia is CLIQ 2, launching on November 1stAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
A leaked T-Mobile roadmap that was originally outed back in July has given us information on a number of leaked devices, but there's still one handset on there that we know next to nothing about: the Motorola Begonia. After recently showing up on another leaked T-Mo document, a rumor is now floating around that says that the Begonia is, in fact, the sucessor to the Moto CLIQ. The Begonia is said to sport Android 2.2 with MOTOBLUR, an "interesting" keyboard that lacks any sort of gap between its keys, support for 3G mobile hotspot, and WiFi calling. Finally, the device is allegedly set to launch on November 1st.
The Motorola CLIQ came out just about a year ago, so I'd say that it's about time that we saw an update to the first handset to rock MOTOBLUR. I'll be interested to see if the CLIQ 2 will run the NinjaBlur-or-whatever-it's-called like on the DROID X and DROID 2 or if Moto has changed their minds and kept their focus on regular ol' BLUR. The rumored Nov. 1st launch lines up with a leaked T-Mobile accessory list, so we don't have much longer to wait!
