If Motorola was considered late to the Android game, then they can’t be knocked on their variance in regards to their handsets. Now, Another unique and quirky handset is making its rounds across the web. This flip-phone, which doesn’t even have a code-name yet, looks to be running the latest version of MOTOBLUR atop Android 2.1.

The phone’s “flipping” part is a transparent cover: basically a screen protector that doesn’t do much more than – you guessed it – protect your screen. Oh, and I’m guessing we might see the earpiece for phone calls located at the inner-top, as well. This prototype is rumored to be equipped with a 5-megapixel camera, 720p HD video recording, and might house dual-3G capabilities (as we see dual data indicators in the phone’s notification bar). Either that, or it could just be a side effect of an unfinished device.

I must say, I’m not a fan of “flippy-ness” making its way to the Android market, but you have to give it to Motorola for bringing a large variety of form-factors to appeal to more people (and inevitably strengthening Android that much further).
