AT&T announces three Motorola additions to its Android stable
"No more accusations that we don't have enough Android phones in our lineup". That's what AT&T was thinking when today it announced a significant expansion of its Android-blessed portfolio. It introduced three new smartphones - the Motorola BRAVO, Motorola FLIPOUT and Motorola FLIPSIDE. All three have Android 2.1 and the latest version of MOTOBLUR, Motorola’s proprietary Android UI overlay. The handsets sport Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS , FM Radio, and a 2GB microSD card thrown in by Motorola for good measure.

Motorola FLIPOUT is the square device we all know and love, with "innovative" pivoting 2.8" touchscreen,  and a 3MP camera with fixed focus. It sports a full QWERTY keyboard below the touch screen, with a dedicated number row. Two battery covers are included in the box - Dark Sapphire and Saffron, while more colors can be purchased separately. Motorola FLIPOUT will be available for $79.99 with a two-year smartphone data plan on October 17 in AT&T stores and online. You can read our review of its European version to get a glimpse of what's in store for the Motorola FLIPOUT US edition.

Motorola BRAVO is the multimedia powerhouse here, with an 800 MHz TI OMAP3 processor, and a 3.7" 480x854 pixels FWVGA screen. There is also a 3MP camera with digital zoom and auto focus, plus one-touch social media uploads. The Motorola BRAVO has DLNA for streaming content over Wi-Fi to enabled devices. Motorola BRAVO will be available for $129.99 with a two-year smartphone data plan in AT&T stores and online, in time for the holidays.

Motorola FLIPSIDE has a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.1" display with 320x480 pixels of HVGA resolution, a 3MP camera, and a trackpad under the capacitive touchscreen as an additional navigation option. There is push support for Microsoft® Exchange email, unified inbox, and corporate-grade security like remote wipe and password ID. The Motorola FLIPSIDE will be available for $99.99 with a two-year smartphone data plan in AT&T stores and online, again in time for the holidays.

+1 Even though the bravo is probably around the mid-range offerings. Not low-end.

I think it's great to see AT&T give more choices to consumers. It's not all going to be to the high-tech crowds that seem to gather in these arenas.

I think Motorola and Verizon probably have an agreement that only Verizon gets the 'big bad phones' from Motorola for the time being.

Makes sense, considering VZW made motorola relevant again with the droid.

Either that or AT&T gas a deal with apple to make sure no good phones come out on AT&T anymore

Which one is better T-mobiles Motorola Charm, or At&t's Motorola Flipout?

well they both have the same features but the t mobile is probably the better deal when it comes to pricing
