The unlocked Motorola Flipout has been a long-rumored phone that finally appears as if it will be coming to fruition in the United States. The first thing that you will notice about the phone is its odd shape. It is shaped like a square, and is quite small. It only has a 2.8 inch touchscreen display with a 320x240 resolution. It also features a 600 MHz CPU, which is a bit underpowered when you are running applications, and a 3 megapixel camera that also does not meet current standards for smart devices.
The good news is that the phone does have a few upsides. The keyboard is easy to type on and is spacious for the size of the device. Of course, because the device itself is so small it might get a little bit uncomfortable if you type on it for long periods of time, but it really couldn’t be any better given the space that it has to work with. The phone is very unique, and has a rotating design that brings the keyboard out from underneath. It is also very affordable, and runs Android 2.1 well, although you might experience some problems if you have numerous apps running at the same time.
Calling on the device is fairly uncomfortable. Its small design and square shape take you out of your element when holding it up to your ear, and I have noticed that a few of my favorite apps do not run on the device, likely because of the size of the screen. It’s lack of power in its processor and camera are also concerning, but overall, for the price at least, the Motorola Flipout unlocked gadegt is a neat little device that should hold you over until that next big release comes out. You will get a lot of questions about it, that’s for sure.
