Motorola's just announced the launch of a new smartphone at CES 2010. The Motorola Backflip is an Android-powered device with the MotoBlur UI and a new reverse-flip design. This allows you to flip the screen upright and use it sort of like an extra-tiny TV. The Backflip has a 3.1" screen, Android 1.5, 5 MP camera with auto-focus and LED flash, and a 2 GB microSD card (up to 32GB accepted). There's no information on the type of processor or the RAM yet, although we do know that is has a "7200A" chipset. At first glimpse, this seems like a fairly bog-standard mid-range smartphone with a somewhat unique form-factor, thanks to the reverse-flip design. The Backflip could be one of the first smartphones to pack Adobe Flash 10.1. Moto also announced today that they are working with Adobe to bring Flash to all Motorola smartphones, under the auspices of the Open Screen Project. Also announced were the MotoNav TN700 and TN500 series of personal navigation devices. They have a cinematic display and offer streaming traffic alerts and a 3D landmark viewing map. The TK30 is a car kit that enables hands-free calling and connectivity to two phones, plus space for an iPod or other music device. The Motorola H720 is a Bluetooth headset, built as the successor to the H710.
