While the original Motorola Cliq/Motorola Dext - Motorola's first Android smartphone which comes in a twin-version for North America and rest of the world - were approved back in September last year, the Global Certification Forum just approved another version of the Motorola MB200 (as it is called internally). While it's unclear which Android version the newly approved Cliq/Dext will feature, the supported bands stay unchanged (quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA). However, the new MB200 supports the Open Mobile Alliance SUPL standard. SUPL, which stands for "Secure User Plane Location", is an IP protocol for assisted GPS (aGPS).

The OMA SUPL standard is compatible to most wireless 2G and 3G networks world wide and was developed to improve performance of aGPS based location estimation approaches in terms of both the position accuracy and the TTFF (time to first fix) delay times.

It's yet totally unclear if the Motorola MB200 SUPL will replace last year's launched Motorola Dext/Motorola Cliq smartphones or if this version is an addition to Motorola's smartphone portfolio. At least it looks like the Motorola Cliq/Motorola Dext aren't yet end of life.

Cheers ~ Arne
