We’ve just had a hands-on with the new Motorola handset – the Quench. Following the press announcement we got a guided tour of the slim tablet handset. The “Swipe” feature for texting / emailing was particularly impressive and we were told that this is actually faster than typing on a normal keyboard. Known in the US as the “CLIQ XT” it’ll retail in other markets as the QUENCH and has the MotoBLUR interface too.
The screen is 3.1″ and Adobe Flash Lite is included for rich web browsing. There’s pinch and zoom capabilites, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, and an LED flash. According to Motorola it’ll be available on T-Mobile USA exclusively to begin with.
