Android-running Motorola FLIPOUT spotted in the wild

11 May, 2010

Motorola FLIPOUT seems to be another social-oriented smartphone with clever design and flipping QWERTY keyboard. It runs Android 2.1 and features the latest MOTOBLUR UI.

It seems the BLACKFLIP sells good enough, because Motorola are on the way to release another strange QWERTY-packed device. The quadratic FLIPOUT is still unannounced but today's leak reveals a device with swiveling QWERTY pad that despite the smallish size, manages to pack all the needed keys plus a D-pad.

The rest of the FLIPOUT specs are rumored to be a 3 megapixel Kodak camera, a 2.8-inch touchscreen, a 700 MHz processor, 256MB RAM and 512MB ROM plus a microSD card slot. More advanced wireless connectivity options - Wi-Fi and 3G - won't be supported.

Android 2.1 enhanced with the latest MOTOBLUR UI 1.5 supporting Live Widgets will power the FLIPOUT.

All this information is based on a reliable source according to Gizmodo Brazil and Motorola FLIPOUT is expected to launch in mid-June. The rumored price for the unlocked device with pre-paid plan is 310 euro.

We hope the FLIPOUT is not bound for Brazil only as several other manufacturers have dedicated products for the Brazilian market.

This phone will have wi-fi and 3g, the tradution portuguese-english is not correct. In the original text in portuguese the correct is "this phone will probably have wi-fi and 3g how all the other Androids"
