Motorola Quench: Thirsty for social networks?

The recently announced Motorla Quench comes fully loaded with a plethora of social networking options: Twitter, Facebook, Myspace and the ability to sync your friends’ profiles with their numbers and email addresses using Motoblur.

One of the advantages of Motoblur is that all contact info is automatically synced whenever someone changes their details online, so the next time someone posts a ‘My new number is xxxx, text me back’ status on Facebook you can text away without having to enter the new digits.

Speaking of texting, it appears that the Motorola Quench will also be bringing Swype, the touchscreen-tastic texting input method, to the UK. Our cousins across the pond have been enjoying Swype on phones for a while and now it’s our turn.

The Motorola Quench has a 3.1-inch touchscreen, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and a single LED flash – this looks to be the standard imaging set up for Motorola Android handsets at the moment. There’s no word yet on price or availability.
