AT&T's long-awaited Backflip phone by Motorola has been released today, making Google's Android platform now available on all four of the country's top wireless service providers.
AT&T, which seemed to snub Android at first, has been more focused on the fact that it is the exclusive carrier for the iPhone. However, that all changed in January when the company announced the Backflip, which hit its release date as scheduled.
The Backflip's namesake comes from the fact that it can flip backwards into something that looks like a tiny laptop PC. With its 3.1-inch touch-screen (HVGA), GPS, accelerometer, and 2GB of pre-installed memory, it is a solid phone but nothing out of pace with the rest of Android's offerings.
In fact, it is being marketed as an entry-level phone. Consumers can walk away with the device today for under $100. That makes it just about the cheapest Android phone available.
In addition to all the standard Android features, Motorola's "Motoblur" service comes packed on the phone, a revolutionary social media infrastructure that ties all the phone's contacts with their Facebook, Twitter, and other online social networks.
With a 2-year service contract, the Backflip can be yours now for $99.99.
