Excerpt: Motorola Flipout Review (AT&T) Aaron reviews the Motorola Flipout, AT&T's newest Android device. It offers a 720 MHz processor, 2.8-inch screen, QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.1, and a cute form factor. Part 2 of 2.
Summary: If you frowned while reading through the review, get ready for the final blow. The Flipout is priced at Rs. 15,999 which is terribly expensive for an outdated OS that cannot be upgraded, mediocre features and an otherwise standard smartphone. On paper, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Ace looks a lot more promising and it's also Rs. 2,000 cheaper.

Summary: For a phone retailing for about Rs. 14,500 the FlipOut does work well when it comes to grabbing attention. While the likes of the HTC Wildfire, LG Optimus One and the Dell XCD series offer full touchscreen experience, the Android powered Motorola FlipOut offers a 2.8-inch touchscreen as well as a comfortable QWERTY keypad in such a small form factor.
Pros: The small for factor makes it a bit more convenient to use, Touchscreen as well as QWERTY combo works for individual preferences, Surprisingly comfortable QWERTY keypad
Cons: Battery life of just a day, Screen resolution of 320x240 results in washed out colors, Disappointing 3.15MP camera only, when almost everyone, including even the sibling- Motorola QUENCH XT5 offers a 5MP camera
Excerpt: The Motorola Flipout offers a uniquely designed, rotating keyboard on a small 2.8 inch screen. This Android powered phone from Motorola is a welcome breath of fresh air to a market flooded with phones with similar designs. But is the design enough to...
Conclusion: Yeah, it doesn't offer the most responsive Android experience we've seen, but combining its inexpensive cost and interesting form factor, some can overlook its lackluster performance. When there are so many Android phones employing the same tried and true designs, the Motorola FLIPOUT manages to stand out with its intriguing looks.
Pros: Intriguing Design, Usable QWERTY
Cons: Low-res screen, Terrible photo quality, Poor battery life
