Motorola Backflip available now-in China

Motorola Backflip available now-in China
The last time we reported on the Motorola Backflip, it was to tell you that a Phandroid tipster was telling the site that the phone would launch on March 7th on AT&T. For the carrier, it will be its first handset powered by Google's open source OS. We do have some more news on the device today. The good news is that the phone is available right now. The bad news is, the only place where it can be purchased is China. Appearing on the MotoChina web site as the ME600, the phone costs 4,298 Chinese Yuan which translates into roughly $629 U.S. Dollars which includes an 8GB microSD card and a car charger. The phone features a display with resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, 5MP camera and a 3.5mm audio jack. AT&T will most likely be offering a subsidized price of $200 or less when it is launched in the U.S. AT&T is expecting some degree of success with the model as the carrier has already ordered 400,000 units. Meanwhile, back in China, the ME600 joins other Motorola Android models like the XT800 and MT710. If the Chinese version of the phone doesn't have you doing, uh...backflips, March 7th isn't too far away. In the meantime, you can stare at the pictures and try to wish time to move faster.
