FlipOut for AT&T Sees New Color, Gets More Details


So we’re pretty sure the Motorola FlipOut is still headed for AT&T. Even if the device isn’t that powerful, it’s still pretty cool and will appeal to a lot of people. That said, we’re still trying to see how this one will differ from the international version already released in other parts of the world. Beside the fact that you can’t sideload apps (like all of AT&T’s other Android phones), Android Central’s source chimed in with a nice list of minor details to keep your appetite whetted.


  • The phone runs the updated version of Motoblur 1.5 — but it’s not what you find on the Droid X and Droid 2.
  • The operating system is Android 2.1 (update1, we presume).
  • Widgets are resizeable, like on the Droid X and Droid 2.
  • There are filtering options for your social networks, so you’re not completely deluged with information.
  • The 2.8-inch screen (at the old-school 320×240 resolution) is described as “garbage” with a low, low 120 pixels per inch. (Hey, it’s not mean to be high-end.)
  • That said, the body of the phone and build quality are said to be top-notch, which is no surprise for Motorola. We may not like the design, but, dammit, they can certainly build things well.
  • Benchmarks:  26FPS on nenamark, 444 on quadrant, 5.8MFlops on linpack, but it’s topping out on gears and 2dfps at 30FPS.
  • The phone is pretty speedy, with its OMAP processor running at 720MHz and PowerVR SGX 530 GPU.
  • This is AT&T we’re talking about, so there is no app sideloading, but like the Backflip and Aria and Captivate, you can use ADB or the Android Sideload Wonder Machine to install the .apk files.
  • Google Navigation is in, and Google is the default search,
    unlike on the Backflip. Yahoo is the homepage, but that is changed easily

Oh, and the thing has a blue back cover, too. That makes it awesome, right?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  2. A 720MHz OMAP processor on a 2.8″ low res screen? Should be pretty fast.

    also, i thought moto was done with motoblur

  4. How bout Flip ugly.

  5. Looks coolish but doesn’t sound so coolish

  6. If this thing had HVGA res, I:d probably buy it. Full QWERTY, and a pocketable design. But the QVGA means most apps wont run on it, and the web will look like shit. For shame…
