this is realy good phone i want get it soon
im waiting for this phone
This is a great device.. yes its a little heavy but you get used to it.. the keyboard is great and the touch screen is very responsive.. for that price is by far the best phone in the market.
This is a great phone, I really liked it. But it's too expensive (at least here, in Brazil). And the internet plans are expensive too.
But the functions and design are awesome. I never liked Motorola phones. But these one... If I had thew money to keep it, I would.

what bad thing you heard say to us please ??!!
Which should I get?
Mytouch 3G or the motorola cliq?
I heard bad things about the cliq so should I stick with the mytouch?
Reasonable price - most Android-based phones from other top-notch manufacturers are overpriced, so very people venture to try out this new OS.
A likable design with a strong youthful appeal
3.5 mm audio jack
MOTOBLUR - sounds promising, plus any modification of Android's default functionality is definitely a plus
Pretty comfortable QWERTY keyboard
5 MP camera with autofocus
A complete set of connectivity options
But naturally, the most crucial point is its price - you could find a lot of shortcomings in the DEXT, but all of them will be negated by its magic "150 Euro" price tag. All things considered, it looks like this phone will be great value for its money.
i see same american or Europe people get korea phone ????!!!!

Analyst estimates 100,000 DROID smartphones sold in first weekend
The lines may have been subdued, but one way or another, it sounds as if Motorola managed to sell quite a few DROIDs over the weekend. According to analyst Mark McKechnie at Broadpoint AmTech, the outfit managed to move around 100,000 of 'em during the opening weekend, with most stores moving at least half of their original shipments. He also estimated that Moto would sell one million Android-based phones in Q4 2009 alone (which includes the CLIQ, obviously), and that he viewed the first few days as "encouraging." It's been a long, long while since we've been able to say this, but hey -- nice job, Motorola.
Motorola Motus gets FCC approval, Sholes Tablet looking legit
As a refresher, this is a device we'd heard would rock the Android midrange with a 5 megapixel AF cam, 3.1-inch QVGA display, and HSPA for a Q1 '10 release, so it's not much more than a tweaked CLIQ as far as we're concerned -- but the big news here might actually be that the Motus filing adds legitimacy to the leaked roadmap where we'd originally heard of it. That document made mention of a "Sholes Tablet" that takes the already-high-end DROID / MILESTONE further upmarket with an 8 megapixel cam and xenon flash, and as you can imagine, we'll be listening to our friends at the FCC pretty intently over the next few weeks to see if we can catch that one sliding through.
this is very good phone
and realy beter than all samsung os se phone
they make new phone Weekly
each week one dump phone
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I think the almighty brand is the one who pays so much....for its own publicity and "no publicity/review" of its old rival.
i really think about getting this phone
i looks great, seems to be good finished and a keyboard is very helpful.
im not such a big fan of social networks but it won't do any harm to have it :)
i think and hope that this can rescue motorola from their difficult situation.
The DEXT is Motorola’s first Android handset, so we were keen to get a closer look at it to see how it compares to the other handsets using the OS that are currently ambling onto the market. That’s just what we got when we attended the phone’s launch.
Going against the current trend of touchscreen-only Android handsets, the DEXT packs in a slide-out Qwerty keyboard to go with its 3.1-inch screen. Thankfully, both perform pretty well. The touchscreen is the capacitive type, making it very responsive to even the lightest of pokes. We didn’t notice much lag either, putting the DEXT touchscreen navigation up there with the best from HTC.
The keyboard’s buttons have a fairly satisfying click to them too, while each key is contoured, making it easy to use without constantly looking at the thing – once you’ve got used to its dimensions at least. It doesn’t take up the full length of the device as there’s also D-pad to the left of the Qwerty.
As you might imagine with a keyboard of this stature, symbols and numbers are inputted by holding down an ‘Alt’ key rather than having their own dedicated keys. The top Qwerty line is reserved for numbers, which is arguably a little under-optimised, but is at least intuitive in its conventionality.
Other than being Motorola’s first Android phone, the DEXT is also a showcase for the company’s MotoBlur system, which is essentially the manufacturer’s take on Android. The tweaks it brings are simple, but should be useful for those with a bit of a thing for social networks.
MotoBlur harvests information from all the major social networks – including Facebook and Twitter – and sets up all your friends as contacts. If your friend’s phone number is listed on their Facebook profile, for example, it’ll be stored on the DEXT automatically. MotoBlur even keeps track of any changes too, so you can essentially just let it work its magic in the background.
If your Facebook friends list is just too voluminous to handle, you can just refer to the phone’s standard contacts list too. After all, who hasn’t got social networking friends they’d never dream of contacting in the ‘real world’?
Widgets for these networks are included as standard on the phone. Drop one on one of the DEXT’s home screens and you’ll be able to keep up with the latest gossip right from your mobile.
MotoBlur steps in once more here too. The last update, say the last Twitter post on your feed, shows up as a speech bubble over the widget itself, giving you even more instantaneous social networking fix.
As long as you don’t mind having you home screens filled with this speech bubbles, it means that MotoBlur is at least level-pegging with HTC’s Sense, the tweaked version of the Android OS used in the HTC Hero. Of course, the DEXT’s Qwerty keyboard means it’s got features above this rival too.
It comes with a cost though. The DEXT is a fairly weighty device, and reasonably chunky too. While the slide-out mechanism seems solid enough, there’s actually a tiny gap between the keyboard and screen sections, so it doesn’t look quite as slick as some slide-out handsets. Mind you, it looks better than the Qwerty-packing Android G1, with its genuinely wonky slide-out mechanism.
There are a few nice design touches too. You don’t need to remove to battery to access either the SIM or microSD slot, for example, and with the keyboard hidden, it’s a pleasantly simple-looking device.
With MotoBlur’s additional functionality sure to appeal to a good number of those looking for an Android phone, the DEXT seems a good entry to the market, especially with the Qwerty seeming, at least on first impressions, pretty decent
