A very compact, square-shaped design sets Motorola's latest Androidphone far apart from other devices on the market. Say hello to the unique Flipout phone!
The Flipout has a 2.8-inch display and, yes, "flips out" to reveal a full Qwerty keyboard. It's the first freshly unique approach to an Android phone form factor, for an OS that is currently dominated by candy bar-style handsets.
Motorola's device is rumored to have a 3.1-megapixel camera, a CPU touting 700 MHz, and GPS functionality. As for the user interface, Motorola's social networking-centric Motoblur software, which streams feeds from Facebook and Twitter directly to the main menu screen, will be pre-loaded. And on the back-end, the latest Android firmware, 2.1, will be powering the device.
Motorola has been trying to come out with a distinctive Android phone for some time now. Earlier this year, images surfaced of an Android-powered flip phone but the blogosphere immediately lit up with criticism about the design. The Flipout looks infinitely more interesting.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
