The Backflip: Motorola's Innovative Android Phone

Jan 11, 2010, 20:03 (0 Talkback[s])

"Motorola just launched its third Android-powered smartphone with a name that describes its unique characteristic. --The Backflip, a phone with a physical keyboard that opens up in the reverse direction. That feature is no gimmick however as it allowed Motorola to add a bigger keyboard than would otherwise be possible. In addition, it gives the phone the ability to fold up and sit on a tabletop transforming it into a bedside clock.

"The Backflip will try to surpass or at least equal the success of Cliq (Dext) and Droid with its own good looks and innovative features. The two previously released Android smatphones have really revitalized Motorola's struggling handset business and they hope that Backflip will ride the momentum.

"This latest Android smartphone has the right goodies to make us drool. Aside from its back-flipping, well-spaced QWERTY physical keyboard, it also has a 3.1-inch touchscreen and a 1-inch touchpad behind the screen."
