CTIA Super Mobility Week
Motorola Flipside (AT&T)At CTIA Fall 2010, Kent German takes a First Look at the Motorola Flipside for AT&T.
-Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor here at cnet.com. I'm here at CTIA Fall 2010 at San Francisco to show you the Motorola Flipside. That's one of three android phones that Motorola announced for AT&T today. This has a slider design with a physical keyboard. I suppose that's why they call it the Flipside because you can flip it to its side. Slide it up and there's that physical keyboard. Also has a virtual keyboard if you don't wanna use the physical one. This sits right there on the display in the normal android format. This is an android 2.1 device. It also runs the newest version of Motorola's Motoblur interface. Up on the top, you see there's a 3.5 mm-headset jack that meets the standards. You can use round headset. You also have a power control. You also have a dedicated camera button and a volume rocker. Down below you have some touch controls. You also have a track pad as well so you can just slide your finger over that and select certain items. Inside you'll find a media player, access to the android market. It does have a 3 megapixel camera. It has bluetooth. It has a personal organizer, messaging, and e-mails so most of what you'd expect from an android phone. It's about mid range as far as features and design goes. AT&T is in need of more android phones, so this certainly helps. I do like the physical keyboard especially. I'm Kent German and this is the Motorola Flipside.
