Motorola's Quench marks company's eighth Android phone

The smartphone will be exclusively available through T-Mobile in the US and called the Cliq XT

Motorola released its eighth Android smartphone on Monday called the Quench or Cliq XT, which comes with a touchscreen and a virtual keyboard.

The phone is based on version 1.5 of Android and features Motorola's own Motoblur, which, for example, syncs e-mails, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter messages. On the software side there is support for Adobe Flash Lite, according to Motorola.

The Quench will be available in the first quarter of 2010, according to Motorola. In the U.S. the phone will be called Cliq XT and be available next month exclusively through T-Mobile USA. Motorola didn't provide details on other parts of the world where the Quench will become available. Pricing was not immediately available.

The Quench also features a music player that connects to the Web and social media networks, including TuneWiki and SoundHound, Motorola said.

The touchscreen on the Quench measures 3.1 inches and has a 320 x 480 pixels resolution. Other features include a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus and a LED (Light-Emitting Diode) flash, A-GPS (Assisted-GPS), with turn-by-turn direction and voice-activated search.

It surfs the web using Wi-Fi or HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) at 7.2M bps.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
