Additional details emerge surrounding the Motorola Flipout for AT&T
We've already seen some shots regarding the Motorola Flipout for AT&T, but now it looks as though additional pieces of information about the unique looking device have surfaced. However, the new information almost mirrors what is seen on the just launched Motorola CHARM for T-Mobile. Seeing that it'll most likely attack the entry-level market, the Flipout will pack a 2.8” capacitive touchscreen which tallies in at an eyesore resolution of 320 x 240 – providing for a less than stellar 120 pixels per inch. In addition, it's running the updated version of MOTOBLUR 1.5 which is almost what you find with the two newer DROID models – such as its re-sizable widgets. Finally, the handset is going to be packing a 720MHz OMAP processor and PowerVR SGX 530 GPU which would be more than equipped in handling the most basic of functions. However, there is no mention whether or not it will enable the side-loading of apps – something that's been concerning with a few of AT&T's Android smartphones.

I can see teens/tweens wanting this device over any other age groups. Its reminds me very much like the Nokia Twist. I can't imagine what browsing the web would be like on a screen that size. Then again, kids these days just like devices that are fashionable.

yeah...dont buy this'll have a good price (x < 99.99) but i bet it ships with 1.5 and will break. Why Motorola can't do on AT&T what they are doing on Verizon puzzles me....Verizon is getting an "EVO"...why can't Motorola make a "Droid-like" device for AT&T...Samsung and LG have been able to make entry-level Android devices like the Ally and Intercept that are quality....

The phone will be a popular alternative to the iphone with the teens, but the iphone is still the number one status symbol with teens.... Motorola does not do DROID the right way with AT&T because AT&T does not want too much iphone complettion and MOTOROLA has a deal with VERIZON. Thankfully, we have the CAPTIVATE which is more than just a nice alternative to the iphone as it better than the iphone.

This phone will not do well at all. It has some nice features that they are putting in such a small weird shape looking phone thinking smaller is better. But this phone reminds me so much of the kin phones that got hyped can do so much in such a small Supposedly sleek design and it failed hard, same thing will happen to this phone. Maybe with a little more success but still fail

How about that piece of shit called the Devour? Yea...that device is a joke. This phone is destined for the same failure.

agree with you here, the twist did literally fall apart from twisting it open over and over, the devour is a POS, dont even see sales for them anymore.... and this phone will disappear quickly, at&t's lineup is crap because apple will not allow anything to be better than the iphone and thats unfortunate because not everyone wants an iphone, but everyone DOES want a quality device.
