Motorola FLIPOUT Android Smartphone Announced

The Motorola FLIPOUT has been spotted a couple of times in the past. After a few months of details here and there, we now have official word from Motorola about the FLIPOUT and what it exactly is.

The Motorola FLIPOUT runs the Android 2.1 operating system. It has a smaller 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen and a unique keyboard that flips out by rotating the device around the top corner.

Features include a three megapixel camera that is fixed focus. 3G connectivity is included. It has 512MB of memory built in and this can be expanded by a microSD card.

The device is square and measures 67mm by 67mm and is 17mm in thickness. It has an 1170mAh battery. For music playback, regular headphones can be used in the 3.5mm headphone connector.

The FLIPOUT uses MOTOBLUR that uses social networking and messaging services that let you keep in touch with people. MOTOBLUE emphasises social networking and can connect to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter as well as email and text messages.

The small 2.8 inch screen has multi-touch enabled and allows pinch to zoom. Software installed on the FLIPOUT includes Google Maps, Google Search and many other apps that can be downloaded from the Android Market.

Unfortunately there are no details on pricing or availability just yet although now that the official announcement has been made, we suspect it wont be too long before we hear from Motorola or one of the networks the FLIPOUT will be available on.

    I used one of these today at the at&t store and this phone is HORRIBLE! The screen looks bad and its slow. It also takes forever to send text messages and receive them. It does not feel cheap though and looks cool. I just would not buy one
