Motorola Flipout gets pictured running on AT&T

Motorola Flipout gets pictured running on AT&T
We mentioned that the funky Motorola Flipout should be heading to AT&T by the end of the summer, and that rumor receives another confirmation today with leaked pictures of the device running on the carrier's network.

The sqare phone has a unique corner swivel design that reveals a physical portrait QWERTY under the 2.8” screen. The 600MHz TI processor and the 512MB RAM/ROM are powering Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR as a paintjob. The handset has a 3MP camera on the back, and will most likely bring in a variety of flashy colors for the casing, judging from the pictures.

There is no official name confirmed and, since the European version is already called the Flipout, AT&T will probably name it something else - the source says Chindi, but a search at the patent office has resulted in the reserved monikers of Cartwheel and Headspin, which are pretty believable.

If this was on T-Mobile, I'd buy it. I don't want the Charm.

I like the Charm, but I'd rather have this. Same specs, but a cooler design that's smaller in the pocket and yet still has a five-row keyboard. Plus, I'm a sucker for brightly colored smartphones.

How about an Android phone with a 4.3" display now?

Wow that is certainly a pocket phone keyboard looks a little tight. Very interesting.

I hope this one will not have the same issues that the Nokia Twist had, where the screen would twist right off.
