Motorola Flipout

It's not often that a smartphone gets all the way into testers' hands and in-store marketing materials are printed up, only to see the device killed off before ever making a sale. But that may be what happened in the case of the Motorola Flipout on AT&T. Engadget got a tip on Saturday that it would hit stores a day later. But here we are a couple days later, and there's no Flipout to be flipped. 

We know it was in the midst of hands-on testing. But is it dead? Is it resting? Is it pining for the fjords? Was it all just a bad rumor? We'll poke at this one for a little while to see if it starts moving again, but only just a little while. [Engadget]
