Motorola Announces the Backflip
Today Motorola announced the Backflip Android phone for networks worldwide with MOTOBLUR. The Backflip is a clamshell device that has a full QWERTY keyboard that folds onto the back of the device. The front houses a touch display and there is a touch-based trackpad on the back surface of the Backflip that can be used for on-screen navigation. It is similar to a laptop trackpad and lets users scroll through menus and screens. The Backflip looks similar to that of the Motorola CLIQ. It has 5 megapixel camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and has the same dock mode that the Motorola Droid has. The Backflip will ship with Android 1.5, but will eventually be updated to Android 2.1. The Backflip will be available from a North American network operator, though Motorola wouldn't commit to which, by the end of the first quarter.

This phone is of no interest to md though. I'm going to wait and see what kind of specs HTC puts into an Android phone for ATT.
If anybody has any idea what HTC is cooking up for ATT, please share.
