Motorola Backflip, Presents and Affirms That All Their Phones Will Have Update to Android 2.1

I don’t know if it is more important to the presentation of the Motorola Backflip or the future updates to Android 2.1 the range Android American House, in any case we will inform you of both.

In the presentation that took place yesterday in the CES Las Vegas, Motorola showed what will be its third Android device on the market, the Motorola Backflip, and which have been talking about on our website since it was known as Motus.

Both specifications and its peculiar control had the opportunity to get to know them a few weeks ago, but I summarize to get in the situation: the phone features with a QWERTY keyboard that can be turned completely to sit with their backs to the screen. Once open leave bare at the back of the phone a new trackpad (not running but available).

In the absence of first impressions, the trackpad seems an ideal for help with navigation and travel element, it is best to see the video then PhoneScoop boys, to know better what I am talking about:

If we forget about the innovative control system, We have a really similar to the Motorola Dext terminal, both in design and specifications, both share also the Android 1.5 version and Motorola MotoBLUR interface. Let’s meet the rest of your specifications:

  • Qualcomm MSM7201A 528 MHz
  • 512 256 MB RAM and MB ROM
  • Display 3.1 inches and resolution 320 x 480 (HVGA)
  • Battery: 1400 mAh
  • 2GB of memory storage
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash (on the keyboard)
  • Jack connector 3.5 mm
  • WiFi connectivity / Bluetooth 2.0 / GPS
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900 W-CDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100

Motorola has reported that they will be available to developers the tools to take advantage of the trackpad, Since we must bear in mind that this system has nothing to do with Android and is something that they need to work on your own.

Thankfully that Motorola is making an effort to present innovative solutions, I hope that in practice become something really useful and serve as an example for following developments.

I like the possibility of to leave the phone resting on the side of the keyboard, to view multimedia content, let’s see an example of this in the following video, this time from the guys at MobileBurn:

And other presentation:

Update to Android 2.1

Accompanying the presentation of the terminal we find almost as important news, Motorola intends to upgrade to its three terminals to Android 2.1, the question is not so simple that use MotoBLUR, since they must update the interface.

I am sure that the effort will give life to these terminals, and will earn the same sales as soon as people understand the improvements reported.

Motorola Droid case seemed clearer, so the interesting news with respect to it we have in another development, since Motorola is working on include the version 10.1 Flash Beta in its terminal star. Thus following in the footsteps of its main competitor, Nexus One.
