Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"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."
