Motorola FLIPOUT is officially announced packing Android 2.1 & enhanced MOTOBLUR
Motorola is coming out of the woods with yet another interesting looking handset that clearly differentiates itself from the rest out there – both from a design and user interface level. Looking similar to the Motorola BACKFLIP, the resemblance may be a bit uncanny from a far distance, but one will easily recognize its square nature and affinity for an alternative opening mechanism. Unlike the backflip-like motions required in getting the QWERTY keyboard into its proper position on the Motorola BACKFLIP, the new device instead opts to perform a flip-like move to swivel the display into its upright position so that the QWERTY is exposed. As far as features go on this device, it packs Android 2.1, an enhanced version of MOTOBLUR, 2.8” QVGA touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera, 512MB of memory, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 7.2Mbps HSDPA. The videos below go into detail regarding the new enhancements found to the much loved MOTOBLUR interface. Finally, the FLIPOUT is expected to launch in Europe some time this quarter, however, no pricing has been revealed just yet or whether or not it'll see a North American launch.

The battery management sounds like a great idea...but still have to see it to see it's practicality.

I'm sorry, but out of all the Android skins I've seen, MOTOBLUR is the ugliest. It's in serious need of a redesign.

It looks like a fat version of the backflip. But, with ANDROID 2.1, it will be waaaaaaayyy better than the KIN Krap.
