AT&T is all set to get its very first Android powered phone in the form of the Motorola Backflip. The Backflip’s big claim to fame is it’s unusual reverse flip design. When closed the Backflip looks like your average candy bar style phone, but take a closer look and you’ll notice that the backside is actually a full QWERTY keyboard that becomes functional when the phone is flipped open. The front of the phone, meanwhile, features a rather spacious 3.1 inch hi-res touch screen. Beyond that you’ve got all the things that are pretty much standard in mobile phones these days, including GPS, WiFi, and a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with flash and video recording functions. Under the hood the phone is rocking Motoblur, Motorola’s flavor of Android (first seen on the Motorola Cliq) that’s all about staying socially connected. All posts, messages, photos, and more from places like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and Gmail are automatically delivered to live widgets for immediate reply right from the home screen. You can check out a walkthrough of the phone with an AT&T rep below.
The Backflip is dropping March 7th for a Benjamin after a $100 rebate and on a 2 year contract (naturally).
