Motorola's Square Android 2.1 Phone Is The FlipOut

I covered a story about four weeks ago about a new phone from Motorola with a strange square form factor and an even stranger story as to how it got leaked. Well, time has passed and the phone is back in the news. Thankfully, we now have a name for it. Unfortunately, the name FlipOut brings back memories of the Backflip.

Thanks to Gizmodo Brazil's work and some translating from Engadget, here are some specs of the FlipOut:

  • 700MHz processor
  • 2.8" display
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM
  • Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR
  • 3.1MP camera
  • GPS
  • Available in black, green, or pink
  • HSPA

If you convert the reported price of the cost of the phone itself in Gizmodo Brazil's story, the price comes out to be about $390 USD, but there is no way of telling yet what exactly the price will be in the US. As for carriers and launch dates, AndroidandMe summed it up well, saying:

The leaked specs of the Flipout indicate it is headed for AT&T and last we heard it was scheduled for a June release. Depending when it launches, this could be the first device to feature Motorola’s new version of Motoblur for Android 2.1. Since we have AT&T and Motorola teaming up for another Android launch, expect a similar experience to what was offered with the Backflip.
