Motorola Backflip, QWERTY Keyboard, and Touchpad in One

Not long ago we put a leak of an Android phone by Motorola which had a somewhat special keyboard, his codename was Motus, and now it appears realistically in a fortunately better quality images.

Its final name change to Motorola Backflip, and it is originally intended for the American market, in particular the operator AT & T, in which, if I am not mistaken, may be its first Android handset.

Curious to see at this stage a terminal with Android 1.5, I guess that conditioned by the interface Motoblur, It also comes loaded with additional as Yahoo Search, or relative to the operator AT & T software.

It is also out of the ordinary that don’t have the most Google applications present in other terminals Android, with the exception of Google Maps and Android Market, have gone to some.

We arrived at the keyboard, one of the more interesting details of the terminal, since it has one of type QWERTY, and as we can see in the pictures is not sliding, but It turns over completely to sit with their backs to the screen, I do not know really that sense may have this, unless we realize that the camera is integrated into the keyboard.

Now comes the second surprise, when the keyboard is open, behind the screen appears a touchpad, which helps with navigation, and apparently works very well, as well as the screen and the camera, two paragraphs which, according to the source, are very careful.

In a matter of dimensions is somewhat smaller than the HTC Dream, and less heavy enough. It is actually a fairly conservative apparatus in terms of power, we are going with the specifications:

  • Qualcomm MSM7201A 528 MHz
  • 512 256 MB RAM and MB ROM
  • Display 3.1 inches and resolution 320 x 480 (HVGA)
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • WiFi connectivity / Bluetooth 2.0 / GPS
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900 W-CDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100
