Motorola Backflip is AT&T’s first Android smartphone

Everyone seems to be jumping on the Google Android bandwagon these days, but how can they not? AT&T wants in on the action so they decided on a release date of March 7th for the Motorola Backflip. That’s less than a month away.

We previously saw the Blackflip at CES last month, but at that time Motorola reps were staying mum about any carrier agreements.  That has changed now, and AT&T will be launching the Motorola Backflip next month.

As a quick refresher, this Google Android smartphone has a unique flipping design where the screen can completely flip up and over the QWERTY keyboard portion of the phone. Equipped with MOTOBLUR, lost devices can be located from a secure personal information portal and GPS.  With a private username and password contacts, messages and connectivity to email systems can be recovered.  The Backflip also gets a 5MP camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, and a 3.1″ touchscreen, check Motorola’s site for more specs.

Look for the Motorola Backflip to sell for $100 with a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate when it hits AT&T next month. Android could position AT&T in a safe place if Apple offers the iPhone to other wireless carriers.

    Following receiving the BACKFLIP within the mail I was delighted yo know I could update the new firmware. I missed the rush, and it was lucky. I’ve had the Backflip for over a 30 days several factors 3 or 4 crashes in a month not negative for 15-20 apps open New WIFI points, as well as a larger edge dada than prior Nokia E61 and N93 Fantastic that the BACKFLIP has a flex keyboard, the screen is often a bit difficult within the edges. You get 500 messages each day from Twitter, Facebook, Yaho, and who ever else yopu want. If you have 30-60 true friends, that is a fantastic mobile phone if you’ve got a lot more it’s going to grab too very much data. Just a 30 days but a good cellphone.
