While Motorola announced a “before-the-Holiday” release time frame for the Motorola CLIQ, we’ve been able to confirm that units will be shipping out to T-Mobile corporate stores, warehouses/fulfillment centers on or around September 29th. Do you know what that means? We’ve been told that the Motorola CLIQ will pop it’s head out for a mid-October launch on T-Mobile. We don’t have pricing details at the moment, but you can bet your bippy it will won’t be above $199 with a 2-year, possibly lower. We’re working on getting supporting materials, but this is pretty much a go!

Former RIM exec signs up with Samsung

Perhaps feeling a little bit smug after experiencing 10.9% growth in its smartphone division in September and October, Samsung has gone and hired former RIM executive Marcus Stone. Having previously worked in sales and marketing for RIM, Stone’s business card will say that he’s the Head of Smartphones for UK and Ireland. His assigned task is to help develop and oversee what Samsung General Manager Derek Williamson is billing as some “incredible products for next year.” Another Samsung hire is Nick France, who will assume the role of Business Solutions Sales Manager. There’s no doubt that Samsung can make one hell of a handset, but is it one of the first five companies you think of when you hear smartphone? Didn’t think so.
