Motorola Cliq, Coming To Canada On Rogers, As Expected

Bookmark and Share
Just days after Motorola announced the launch of their new smartphone called the Cliq running Google's Android operating system based on the prototype code named 'Morrison' word comes from Rogers Wireless that they will be launching the Cliq on their network in early 2010. This comes as very little surprise that Rogers would pick up Motorola's Andorid phone and launch it about the time that competing GSM carriers are due to launch in Canada.

Many are wondering why the prototype CDMA models were left out of Motorola's announcement on the 10th, both the 'Sholes' and 'Calgary' prototypes carry the Verizon logo, It makes one wonder if a deal with a Canadian carrier will be coming right after the official launch announcements that are expected in October. Android based smartphones are exactly what Telus would need to gain market share in Ontario and Eastern Canada it would be foolish to bet that Telus would not get an Android based phone from Motorola or some other vendor.
