It was no surprise to see it, but Motorola officially showed off the new Cliq 2 today at its CES press conference. Actually the third device in the Cliq series after the original Cliq and the Cliq XT, the Cliq 2 offers a slider design with a physical keyboard and it supports T-Mobile's 4G HSPA+ network.

Running Android 2.2 (Froyo) and the latest version of MotoBlur, the Cliq 2 brings a midrange feature set that includes all the Android basics plus a few multimedia options. Inside you'll find a 5-megapixel camera with digital zoom and a dual LED flash, video recording, a digital music player, 1GB of internal memory plus support for a 32GB microSD card, 512MB RAM, an FM radio, Assisted-GPS, a personal organizer, messaging and e-mail, stereo Bluetooth, and USB mass storage,

It all sits behind a 3.7 inch (854x480 pixel) display. The Cliq 2's body measures 4.56 inches long by 2.34 inches wide by 0.57 inch wide and weighs a hefty 6.17 ounces. The candy bar design is pretty standard, but it sports a unique spider web-like design around the keys.

We don't know pricing and availability just yet, but expect a price of about $129 with service. We'll catch a full hands-on shortly so stay tuned...
