Motorola Flipout

The Motorola Flipout, which we first showed you with AT&T branding in late June, is available in some parts of the world and is already being put through its paces. The basic specs:

  1. 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen
  2. Android 2.1 (Eclair)
  3. Motoblur
  4. QWERTY keyboard

The Flipout may be coming to the U.S. soon on AT&T. If you live in Canada, however, you can buy it on Rogers right now. For more about the Flipout's look and feel, check out the video after the break. [TracyandMatt]

I like this form-factor as a "weekend/bar" phone. I really wish CDMA used SIM cards; Sprint really missed the boat there because I'd probably own 4 or 5 phones at any given time if I could just swap the card around like my GSM friends can.

One other comments on the Flipout - why no dedicated search button at the bottom? With that small screen I'd imagine I'd navigate around primarily via search rather than icons/program lists.

My wife was looking at this but she decided on the Charm. She really likes it compared to her old Curve 8330.

Beware of buying cheaper function specific phones from Motorola! Motorola will kill the the device in less than a year. Take a look at what just happened to the Cliq. Pony up the $ for the higher end Motorola phones or you'll be stuck with something that does not get updated after 6 months.

Every time I see this phone a piece of my android love dies some. Its like motorola is now trying to push android into the multimedia phone arena. This phone will last all of 5 months before its too old and too slow. Plus the design is odd the charm looks better

Oh my that low res screen looks like hell. No thanks. The form factor is interesting, but that has maybe 4 months before EOL if it's lucky.
