Motorola FLIPOUT is a compact smartphone with rotating touch screen and QWERTY keypad. It is enabled for AT&T's HSPDA 3G network allowing you to make calls while simultaneously receiving text messages, e-mail or surfing the internet. It uses the Android 2.1 operating system.
"We’ve really enjoyed reviewing the Motorola FLIPOUT. Its quirky design got it noticed wherever we went, usually for the right reasons. The fact it has the versatility of Android 2.1 under the hood made setting everything up and maintaining RSS feeds, social networks and emails a breeze. The result is a novel, truly usable, feature rich phone, proving that sometimes, ingenuity pays off."
"On paper, the Motorola Flipout shouldn't work. Its rotating slideout keyboard design results in a small screen but not a particularly small phone, while its processor is a bit slow. Overall it smacks of a concept taken too far. However, Motorola has done the best it can with the idea, producing a phone that's very well made, has a great keyboard and wants for little in the way of features."
"The Flipout is a cure for the common Android device, but the oddball screen means it's not for power users."
"The Motorola FLIPOUT is different than anything I'm used to, but it surprised me in quite a few ways. While it is assuredly a mid-range device, it offers a great web experience for such a small display, great social media connection, a nice physical QWERTY keyboard, and a cheap gateway to the smartphone world. The target demographic is mainly teens and first-time buyers."
