Review: Motorola CLIQ XT
The Cliq XT runs Motoblur on top of Android 1.5. As far as I can tell, Motorola still has made no changes to Motoblur interface between the first release and now.
Out of the box, Blur's Happenings, Updates and Messaging widgets are on the home screen. Happenings is a constant live stream of all your friends' Twitter and Facebook status updates. Updates are all of your Twitter and Facebook status updates. Messaging is a master inbox that combines your SMS/MMS and IM messages with Facebook messages and Twitter direct messages.
All of the Cliq XT's applications can be customized, deleted, moved, whatever. Users have plenty of choice when it comes to making the basic experience of the Cliq XT their own.

Surprisingly, the Cliq XT's performance was not bogged down by Blur. I was able to test the Backflip and Cliq XT side-by-side with the exact same user account settings. The Cliq XT out-performed the Backflip hands down. I don't know what Motorola has done differently, but the Cliq XT is the first Blur phone that isn't painful to use.
