Here's a new phone form factor to flip out over. The Motorola FlipOut brings its unusual twisty motion to the beaches of Brazil, but will it make it over here?
We've seen a few square phones lately, including the slideror the clamshell . But the FlipOut puts a new, ahem, twist on things with a twisting action from the top right-hand corner of the keyboard.
The FlipOut runs Motorola's Android 2.1. It boasts a 3.1-megapixel camera, Qwerty keyboard and 71mm (2.8-inch) display. Inside, there's 256MB of RAM and a 700MHz processor. It packs GPS but apparently no 3G or Wi-Fi.front end over
Gizmodo Brazil reports that the FlipOut will be on sale in assorted colours in the land of carnivals, samba and barefoot beach football. We can't see it coming over here -- probably wouldn't be able to cope with the climate. What do you think of the samba-style twisty motion?
