Motorola Backflip to launch March 7th for $324 at AT&T?
If you're an AT&T customer, you have been waiting a long time for March 7th. That is the date that the carrier will be launching it's first Android device according to a tipster that passed on the word to Phandroid. So which handset will be AT&T's first Android flavored phone? It's the Motorola Backflip, the unique flip form factor device that bends almost as many ways as Gumby and when closed, the screen still faces outward. The phone will cost $324 according to the tipster, and that will be the unsubsidized cost of course. With a 2 year contract, we're sure the price will be much lower. Recently we reported that AT&T ordered 400,000 units from Motorola, so the carrier is obviously expecting great things from this mid-range Android phone. Check out the video for a look at the form factor of the Backflip. If you're a big fan of the Android OS and have been shut out on AT&T, you might be doing some backflips yourself come March 7th.

Funny, after two years of zero UI enhancements, that's pretty much the same with Apple. It's just an iphone. Proof positive that it takes far less than two years to become stale, even if you were groundbreaking at release.

$324 is pretty cheep for an off contract that case, I might buy this off contract and get w/e htc Android phone at&t gets on contract. I'm not leaving Atl or at&t any time soon, and at&t is pretty decent down here, so it should be a good deal.

I use Google Andorid phone, to put video to Android phone and enjoy it on the go, I prefer Wondershare video converter, it could convert between all popular Video formats ( AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG etc.). I spent ages looking at best Android video converter, tried loads and finally settled on this because it is quick, and most of all its best at batch jobs.
