Motorola hosted a cocktail reception last night at Morimoto in Manhattan's Meatpacking District last night to unveil its latest phones to members of New York City's digital scene.  In a gadget room, right next to the entrance, representatives from the company were on hand to let attendees handle both phones, the Cliq, which had launched earlier, and the Droid, which had launched in New York City earlier that same day. 

Mashahuru Morimoto himself was on hand and attendees were able to sample sushi freshly-prepared on site while mingling and listening to music spun by the two DJs hired for the event.  Downstairs, there was a Motorola-themed photo booth where guests could get their photo taken holding Motorola-themed props, including an oversized, 1980s style cell phone.

[Editor's Note: Each attendee at the event is being provided with either a Droid or Cliq phone courtesy of Motorola. NYConvergence received a Motorola Droid courtesy of the organizer, The Cake Group, on November 9.]
