T-Mobile's Motorola CLIQ Receives Update

T-Mobile's CLIQ is receiving a critical update containing many improvements and addressing major issues. This update (1.4.8) is quite extensive and is being rolled out in stages as of yesterday. The update includes improvements to the touchscreen sensitivity, battery life, text messaging, and Bluetooth functionality.

Unfortunately, the update does not include Android 2.1, but continue to expect it sometime in the next few months. Due to previous issues with their last CLIQ OTA update, Motorola has worked to make sure there should be much fewer issues with installing the update.

Here is a list of changes that come with the update from Phandroid, taken from Motorola's page:

Relocated “End Call” Button: The “End Call” key was relocated within the calling screen to reduce instances of unintentionally ending Active calls

Text Messaging: General improvements to text messaging – especially for longer message threads

Improved Battery Life: Enhanced battery performance

Improved Touch Screen Sensitivity: Improves the touch screen sensitivity and response of the device-including touch sensitivity for keys on or around the display borders

Improved Audio Quality for Calls: Enhances audio quality in certain scenarios in which users experienced issues

MOTOBLUR Set-Up Screen: Set-up wizard improved to make MOTOBLUR set-up for new users or those who have been prompted to re-enter information easier

Better Audio Routing: Repairs audio routing to prevent: spontaneous speakerphone activations during calls and the random occurrence of music playback through the earpiece instead of appropriate external speakers

Improved Caller Notification: Improves user interface performance-consistently notifying the user when a new call is coming in which reduces missed call notifications

Faster GPS Performance: Provides faster GPS performance for applications such as Google Maps, Geotagging of photos and other GPS functions

Support For Additional Windows Media Formats: Compatible with more media formats including .WMA and .WAV Windows media files

Bluetooth Improvements: Enables the user to listen to visual voicemail via Bluetooth and enables the Bluetooth car kit to sync to user’s device therefore the car kit can display the names of incoming callers and download phone book contacts (calls can now be made from the car kit display and enables users to view the call history list from the car kit display)

SIM Card Management: Enables user to import, export or delete contacts individually or in groups

Additional Stability: Additional device stability reduces occurrence of unresponsiveness and/or programs quitting unexpectedly

The Latest Versions of Google Applications: Updated Google Mobile Services application provides access to the latest Android 1.5 compatible versions of Google applications such as Maps, Talk, YouTube, Market, and more
