AT&T getting ready to Flipout soon?

AT&T getting ready to Flipout soon?
When AT&T joined the Android race by launching the Motorola Backflip, it was a unique form factor device that did not catch on like the carrier had hoped it would. Now the pair are teaming up again for another unique looking Android device. According to reports, AT&T has been testing the Motorola Flipout. The square device has a physical QWERTY keyboard that rotates from behind the 2.8 inch screen to become a portrait facing physical QWERTY. While it might not be a large screen, Motorola has opted for a fairly fast TI OMAP 3410 600MHz processor. The Motorola product page shows 512MB of RAM to go along with the 512MB of ROM. Aboard will be a 3.1MP camera and the phone will be powered by Android 2.1 with Motoblur. With testing allegedly being done on the device, look for a launch this July or August when the Flipout joins with the Backflip to give AT&T two of the most unique Android form factors on the market. It's enough to make AT&T customers, uh, flip.

What most people don't know is that a lot of teenagers would love this for because of it's form factor. Seriously, the average consumer doesn't care about what version of Android is on the phone, they care about the outside appearance.

How is this unique in form factor when it is designed exactly like the Nokia twist that came out last year from Verizon. Even has the size screen and all.

Godpapa I was wondering the same thing. LOL. But I think if Att is every going to be successful with any Android, they got to stop restricting the devices. Hopefully that wont be the case with the Flipout.

The ARIA is actually a nice phone with no issues, unlike previous HTC ANDROID phones - and, I can store apps on SD card with rooting thanks to certain market apps....
