Doubtless we'll be seeing a lot of punny headlines over the Motorola Backflip (also rumored to be called the Enzo), but none from us. Phandroid got tipped to a relatively run-of-the-mill device. But before we worry about specs, let's worry about carriers. This thing appears destined for AT&T, sporting AT&T-branded apps and 3G bands and an AT&T labeled ROM and a giant AT&T button on the jacked up keyboard (more on that in a minute).
Now, the rest of the specs. Rumored are the standard Qualcomm MSM7201A processor at 528MHz, 512MB ROM/256MB RAM, a 3.1-inch display at HVGA, 5MP camera, Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi, GPS, etc. Also, it's got Android 1.5 on board (let's hope that gets updated real quick) and Motoblur.
Really, the only thing of note is the keyboard, which
slides out and then flips under in a sort of weird reverse tablet thing, with the screen on the opposite side. Question is: Why? OH: Wait. It's not a slider. It's a weird flipper. Duh. Too simple. Question still remains: WHY?!?!?!?!?
A few more pictures after the break.
This entire article should just have pics and a single word, "why?".
looks cheap compared to the droid
Looks cheap period not just compared to the droid.
Good thing the people behind this device at Moto weren't working with the Droid...
You mean you can't touch type on the reverse of a phone? Shame on you!
lol. Yeah. And my wife is leaving me for it.
More Moto garbage Android 1.5 and no gmail app. This phone is a dud and I'm sure that's what ATT wanted as to not interfere with iphone sales.
I wish that at&t would bring something like the Eris or Hero for its first Android phone instead of this junk. I think that the above poster is correct in that they want to protect the iPhone.
