We just got a big scoop from an anonymous tipster that will leave you doing backflips… or, uh… Enzos. If you remember our first Motorola Backflip article, you’ll remember a unique/odd form factor that left people guessing exactly how it would work. Guess no more – we’ve got a bunch of pictures and a hand full of details.
First of all, our tipster referred to it as the “Motorola Enzo” although he said it could be called Backflip on launch day, which – to us at least – seems more likely. Feast your eyes, ladies and gents, on what will very likely become AT&T’s first Android Phone:
Whether the Motorola Backflip or Motorola Enzo, it will come as model MB300, be released with 1.5 firmware, run MOTO BLUR and have AT&T customizations which include:
- Yahoo! Search
- AT&T Nav
- AT&T Music
- AT&T Mobile App store (ringtones, little games, etc…)
Our tipster says it will NOT come with any Google Apps except for Maps which is a bummer to say the least. It will come with Android Market and you’ll still be using your Google Login to get the job done but there seems to be a bit of a disconnect here… afterall, don’t other SENSE/BLUR phones come filled up with the GOOG goods? And Yahoo Search? Really? You can even see the Yahoo Search widget on the homescreen in one of the pics above. Dissed.
One of the things that interests us MOST is that physical QWERTY keyboard on the back. Our tipster says its always revealed and flips from the back as you can see in the picture. When the keyboard is open a touchpad on the back of the phone is revealed which allows you to easily scroll through webpages and apparently it works very well. They claim the screen is very responsive, the phone itself is very light, the camera works great, flash is very bright and the auto-focus was perfect.
Our first article listed the following specs which still seem to fall in line with the info we’re getting here:
- 528 MHz Qualcomm MSM7201A
- 512 MB ROM
- 256 MB RAM
- 3.1 inch display 320 x 480 (HVGA)
- 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
- WiFi / Bluetooth 2.0 / GPS
- OS Android 1.5 with Motoblur
- GSM 850/900/1800/1900 W-CDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100
- Reverse flip keyboard
- Rear directional touchpad
Enjoy folks… and let us know what you think!
UPDATE: Tipster also says it is slightly thinner, slightly shorter both length and width, and lighter than the G1. surprisingly doesn’t feel “brickish”
