A very compact, square-shaped design sets Motorola's latest Android phone 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.

As shown in photos on Electronista, the phone will be available in a variety of colors, ranging from green to pink to black.

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.
