Motorola FlipOut comes with Android 2.1
Motorola just announced a new Android phone called the FlipOut, a full qwerty phone that’s got an odd form factor and uses a Texas Instrument processor.
The phone slides or swivels from the side by 180-degrees to reveal the full qwerty keyboard (meant to be used with both hands but I wonder how do you make calls with this).
2.8″ display screen @ 320×240 pixels
Texas Instrument OMAP3410 700MHz processor
256MB RAM, 512MB ROM
up to 32GB via microSD (2GB included)
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 2 Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
3.15 MP camera
GPS w/ A-GPS support
FM Radio tuner w/ RDS
MotoBlur UI v1.5 with Live Widgets
Li-Ion battery 1170mAh
The design looks close to the earlier one (Motorola Dext) they released. The screen is kinda small though, measuring at only 2.8″ diagonally. Motorola did not indicate when or how much this handset will cost when released.
