Motorola Flipout on AT&T

We brought you the first pictures of the AT&T version of the Motorola Flipout, and now it's time to drop off a truckload of info on the device. Let's do so in handy bullet form, shall we?

  • The phone runs the updated version of Motoblur 1.5 -- but it's not what you find on the Droid X and Droid 2.
  • The operating system is Android 2.1 (update1, we presume).
  • Widgets are resizeable, like on the Droid X and Droid 2.
  • There are filtering options for your social networks, so you're not completely deluged with information.
  • The 2.8-inch screen (at the old-school 320x240 resolution) is described as "garbage" with a low, low 120 pixels per inch. (Hey, it's not mean to be high-end.)
  • That said, the body of the phone and build quality are said to be top-notch, which is no surprise for Motorola. We may not like the design, but, dammit, they can certainly build things well.
  • Benchmarks:  26FPS on nenamark, 444 on quadrant, 5.8MFlops on linpack, but it's topping out on gears and 2dfps at 30FPS.
  • The phone is pretty speedy, with its OMAP processor running at 720MHz and PowerVR SGX 530 GPU.
  • This is AT&T we're talking about, so there is no app sideloading, but like the Backflip and Aria and Captivate, you can use ADB or the Android Sideload Wonder Machine to install the .apk files.
  • Google Navigation is in, and Google is the default search,
    unlike on the Backflip. Yahoo is the homepage, but that is changed easily
    enough.

So there you go, folks. We're looking at a small, speedy, pocketable Android phone. We've got a couple more pictures after the break, including one with a blue backing -- perhaps there will be interchangeable battery covers?
