Motorola to offer Android via all US carriers

Motorola is involved in talks with large US carriers in releasing its Android-powered Cliq handset, according to Co-CEO Sanjay Jha speaking in a Monday WSJ report (sub required). Thus far, only T-Mobile has been confirmed to get the phone, with shipments believed to start as early as October or November. A Motorola Android handset, codenamed Sholes for Verizon, has also been linked to AT&T. Jha has said Motorola hopes to eventually offer its Android handsets through all US wireless providers. The executive expects to release more Android handsets in 2010.

The Cliq will arrive in the US, as well as the UK, Spain, France and Latin America in the fourth quarter of 2009. Jha has not announced any more information about the Cliq, however, such as pricing or exact ship dates.

Motorola hasn't had a strong-selling handset since the original RAZR that debuted in 2004, and its latest plans for the widespread release of upcoming smartphones powered by the Android platform are expected to help the company compete with other successful handset makers.
