New Motorola Flipout from AT&T

We heard a rumor all the way back in June that Motorola’s Flipout would be making its way to AT&T, and a little over a week ago we saw a leak of what is likely that very device. Today, we’ve got more info on the handset for you interested buyers. The folks at Android Central have posted some specs and first impressions, and while there still isn’t any release or pricing info, I’m glad to learn anything I can when it comes to a new Android device. Here’s the skinny on the Flipout from AC:

As you can see, the Flipout is by no means a state of the art, high-end device, but more of a mid-range handset meant for texting fans and teens looking for a fashionable phone. The last leak we saw had the device sporting an orange back, and now we have a photo of the phone with a blue back, so it’s looking likely that there will be interchangeable backs for the Flipout, making it even more attractive for a stylish crowd. The physical QWERTY keyboard is a welcome addition, and should definitely help the Flipout garner some attention from those of us that prefer a more tactile, button-filled experience. So, has the interchangeable back covers and keyboard propelled the Flipout to the top of your must-have Android list?
