AT&T will release the Motorola BACKFLIP on March 7
АТ&Т seems to be really into social networking, as it has just announced the upcoming March 7 availability of the Motorola BACKFLIP via Facebook. We’ve been hearing rumors about this, and now it is confirmed. Congrats to all of you, AT&T users! Those of you who’ve been waiting for an Android smartphone will finally get what they wanted. It may not be the Google Nexus One or the DROID (or both of them), but hey, the Motorola BACKFLIP is a great Android phone with 3.1-inch HVGA screen, 5MP AF camera, 3.5mm jack, Wi-Fi and 3G. Quite impressive, we should say. What makes it even better is Moto’s MOTOBLUR interface, which pushes all kinds of social updates directly to your home screen. So basically, AT&T’s announcement in Facebook does make sense, after all, many of the users who’ll be getting this device are Facebook users too!

I thought that the Cliq and Motoblur use 1.6. Am I mistaken? But either way, as soon as Moto makes motoblur work with 2.1, I'm sure there will be an update.

It's a good offering for AT&T's first Android phone. It's basically the Motorola Cliq with a different/unique form factor. Kudos AT&T.
