Motorola BackflipBonnie Cha takes a First Look at the Motorola Backflip, the company's latest Google Android device.
[ Music ] >> Bonnie Cha: Hi. I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com, and I'm here in Las Vegas for CES 2010, and I've got here the Motorola Backflip, Motorola's latest Google Android device. Kind of from the front, it looks a little bit like the Motorola Click, but it's got some very unique design and software features. First of all, on the back, you will actually find the keyboard. It's not active when it is closed, but you can open it, and it'll activate here. You've also got a 5 megapixel camera here. Also, on the back is something called the Backtrack, and it acts like a track pad, but it allow you to scroll through your pictures and e-mails here on front without obstructing your view with a touchscreen. So that's pretty cool. Also, it's got something called Table Top Mode. So when you hold this phone in 90-degree angle and set it on the table, it'll kind of activate a multi-media dock mode like you would on the Motorola Droid where you can see your weather forecast, alarm clock. You can also view your photo gallery in a kind of slide show, animated slide show that, so that's great. It is running Motorblur software, and it will launch with Android 1.5 but will upgradeable to 2.1. It is a quad van GSM device. Try Van HSCPA, so you will get 3G. It supports AT&T's 3G band, but they haven't announced a U.S. carrier at this point. It will launch globally, like we said, in Q1 2010. Pricing has not been announced as well, but definitely a very sleek device. Three point one has v GA touchscreen here with your usual customizable home screens. Other features of the device include WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and all the features you would expect on a pretty high-end smartphone. So again, this is the Motorola Backflip. We're definitely looking forward to checking this device out when it comes out, hopefully soon. I'm Bonnie Cha, and this has been your first look at the Motorola Backflip. [ Music ]
