Motorola Flipside

The Motorola Flipside is what Motorola calls "web-wise and work-smart", hoping that it will work as both a smartphone for work and play. The Flipside has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which we thought was quite roomy and the keys had a nice raised texture as well.

Screen and trackpad

The Motorola Flipside has a 3.1-inch HVGA display and there's also a trackpad underneath the display in case you don't want to use the touch screen all the time. It ships with Android 2.1 and it also has the latest enhanced version of MotoBlur that provides greater control over the widgets.
