Watch this: Motorola Cliq XT - silver (T-Mobile)

Just a few hours after announcing pricing and availability for the HTC HD2, T-Mobile did the same for the Motorola Cliq XT.

The Cliq XT is available now for $129.99 with a two-year contract and a qualifying data plan. It's T-Mobile's fifth Android device and though some might be quick to dismiss the XT as a slight revamp of the Motorola Cliq, we think that's a gross generalization.

The XT offers a sleeker design with a capable onscreen keyboard courtesy of Swype, a more full-featured and connected media player, and, thankfully, better performance than the Motorola Backflip. It's not perfect, but we found much more to like than to dislike about the Cliq XT, and we think the pricing is pretty fair.

For all the details, check out our full review of the Motorola Cliq XT for T-Mobile.
