We’ve heard of the Flipside name before from an AT&T leak, and now the carrier has gone on to announce the Motorola Flipside, which is an Android smartphone. Rather than the form factor employed by the Backflip with its backflipping keyboard, the Flipside uses a more conventional sliding keyboard form factor. With a front trackpad, the device seems to be a nice merge of the T-Mobile CLIQ and CLIQ XT form factors into a compact package for AT&T.
With a 3.1-inch HVGA screen, the Flipside is a midrange handset that features Motorola’s CrystalTalk technology for noise cancellation. It features MOTOBLUR, Android 2.1, and a TI OMAP 3410 processor with HSDPA 7.2 Mbps support. There is 512 MB/256 MB ROM/RAM and a 2 GB microSD card in the box. Bluetooth, WiFi b/g, and GPS are standard. Available for $99.99 by the holiday season, you can get more information about the Flipside by visiting att.com/flipside.
