The Motorola Flipside is a new messaging phone for AT&T. The $99 price tag isn't bad at all for this midrange Android 2.1 handset, which sports a 3.1-inch HVGA touch screen, a 3-megapixel camera, and a 32GB-capable expandable memory card slot.

It has the full range of rock-solid Android apps, but also some only arguably useful preloaded programs and the standard shortcuts and installations for AT&T services.

Still, there's one more significant bonus and drawback each for the Flipside. Consult our full review for more details.
