Motorola shows off its first Google Android phone

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - September 10, 2009 It is banking on Google's free operating system to power features and applications that will attract consumers looking to use their phones to connect with their friends, family and colleagues.

The Motorola Cliq and other Android-based handsets Motorola Inc. plans to release could be the key to reviving its handset division, which hasn't produced a hit since the wildly popular Razr phone in 2005.

The Cliq was unveiled Thursday during a mobile Internet conference in San Francisco.

It will be available through T-Mobile for the holidays. Motorola plans to unveil a second handset in the coming weeks, also for the holidays.

HTC Corp. has released two Android handsets, and Samsung has announced plans for one.
