Backflip is out as the Motorola Flipout opts for a flip-like action
Some questioned the reality of the square-like Motorola phone we first saw a month ago, but now it looks more telling that this device is for real. Although there is a slight resemblance to the Motorola BACKFLIP, this latest smartphone sports a twist/flip like action that's required in getting the QWERTY keyboard into its usable position. Going by the name Motorola Flipout, it features Android 2.1, MOTOBLUR, 3.1-megapixel camera, 2.8” touchscreen, 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM, GPS, and a 700 MHz processor. As of late, we've been seeing a steady stream of handsets that utilize the square form factor – such as the Nokia Twist, Microsoft KIN ONE, and the LG Lotus Elite. When it comes to personalization, it looks to be available in three colors – but it's unknown which carriers will be offering the smartphone. When every device out there looks somewhat the same, it's quite refreshing to see Motorola once again by stepping outside of the box to offer a unique looking device that can differentiate itself.
