MWC: Quench next from Motorola


Motorola will bring its latest Android device, Quench, to market later this quarter. Quench will also feature Motoblur, the manufacturer’s social networking integration technology, which organises messages and synchronises contacts to keep conversations in constant motion.

The Quench comes with a 3.1-inch full touchscreen with pinch and zoom capabilities, as well as a front-facing, centrally-located touch pad, designed to make navigating the phone easier.

The media player enables users to buy and instantly download music from an MP3 store while integrating third party apps such as TuneWiki, SoundHound, GoTV and YouTube.

Quench also comes with dual microhphones and noise cancellation technology, 5-megapixel autofocus camera, A-GPS and voice-activated search.

Motorola co-CEO and devices and home business CEO Sanjay Jha said: “As we continue to expand Motorola’s portfolio of Android-powered devices, we remain committed to delivering more of what people want from their handheld devices in easier ways. Quench with Motoblur showcases Motorola’s design heritage by offering a compelling differentation from the traditional Android experience, giving people an easier way to have more messaging, more web and more music.”

Quench will be available globally later this quarter. UK availability is yet to be announced. In the US, the device will be called Cliq XT with Motoblur and will be available exclusively through T-Mobile USA from the beginning of next month.
