Motorola’s Flipside, an Android 2.1 smartphone skinned with MOTOBLUR is heading to AT&T. Confusingly due to Motorola’s naming conventions on mobile phones, the Flipside does not flip at all like we would expect it to. The Backflip flips its keyboard back and forth, while the Flipside offers a more traditional slideout keyboard. The Milestone has a trackpad built-in to the keypad, while the Flipside has the trackpad on the front display taking the viewing real estate down to 3.1-inches.
The smartphone runs a TI Omap 3410 processor, with Wi-Fi B/G, GPS, Bluetooth and HSDPA 7.2 Mbps speeds. It comes with 512MB ROM, 256MB RAM and a 2GB microSD card. It will be on AT&T for $99.99 in time for the holidays; Flipside should have been called Flipslide.
