Motorola Backflip Android Smartphone with MOTOBLUR
There is so much to see on the CES trade show floor, but one of the devices that grabbed my attention was the Motorola Backflip. Like several other smartphones, it combines a touchscreen with a hardware QWERTY keyboard, but the form factor is completely unlike anything that I have seen elsewhere.

Instead of simply sliding out of the side like the Motorola Droid, the Backflip does a more extreme version of the sideways clamshell. The keyboard can actually flip all the way around to the back and close again, allowing you to have just access to the touchscreen should you so desire.

This unique reverse-flip design “creates new possibilities for enjoying music, photos, and more.” The Backflip uses the same processor as the Motorola CLIQ and it has the same MOTOBLUR user interface as well.

The expectation is that the Motorola Backflip will be made widely available in North America in the coming months, though no carrier deal has been announced as of yet.

    i just recently purchased this phone and im loving it. I turned off the motoblur because it’s all to confusing and i kept getting notifications constantly. i absolutly love this phone and the keyboard is nice and spacious and the touch screen isnt the greatest but its still pretty good. The one thing that bothers be is that once you add your facebook, twitter, my spaces etc… accounts than it adds all your contacts to you r phone. Say you want to call your best friend you have to scroll through literally over 200 contacts in your contacts list because all of the contacts from your social sites gets added to the phone. most people have lots of facebook friends over 100 imagine all that in you r contact list! but if you dont add your acounts into the phone and un activate the moto blur this phone is amazing.
