What a night!  Along with announcing the Motorola Xoom, Motorola's CEO also announced the CLIQ 2 and its crazy honeycomb-patterned sliding keyboard.

The handset will pack a 1GHz processor, 5MP camera, WiFi calling, mobile hotspot capabilities for up to 5 devices, and a 3.7-inch FWVGA (854x480) display. With dual-core phones coming out of the woodwork, it seems that 1GHz CPU's will quickly become the new mid-range favorite, which is pretty incredible considering everyone's favorite 1GHz packing 'Superphone', the Nexus One, was announced just one year ago today.

Still no word on pricing, but you should be able to nab one come January 19th -- as long as you can tolerate that funky keyboard design.

    Okay, while these Motorola products get me SUPER EXCITED, I simply cannot allow myself to buy them. I read this article that claims Motorola supports illegal activities and war crimes and I dont want to support a company that supports that kind of thing.

      That's a bunch of politically loaded bullshit. Why this crap should be here at first place? Go troll to political forums.

    Looking at Motorola during the Cliq XT situation, no Moto for me !

    Hope it doesn't suck as much as the original CLIQ did. And also I hope it doesn't have that Motoblur junk heavily integrated, hope it's lean, clean and mean. Wife couldn't stand the Cliq, ended up with a MT3G Slide. This looks interesting and it's less than 1.5 weeks from being sold, so that's a plus.

    So this is the only phone announced at CES '11 for T-Mobile?
