This phone is duly noted as being the first ever Android phone without Google search - instead it has Yahoo search! This a big factor for a lot of people out there because usually with an Android phone you don't have a choice in the matter. Its Google or nothing. Believe it or not, a lot of people would rather use Yahoo! While the Motorola Backflip is not one of the more high-end phones like the Apple iPhone or the Blackberry, it still holds some pretty awesome attributes that make it one of the most bought phones of 2010. This is their 4th release for the US market and the fifth universal.
First off, this phone has a clam shell design all in its own respect. It's not the usual clam shell design that most other phones have because the keyboard is almost always visible whereas with other designs the QWERTY keyboard is usually hidden away. Also, this phone has the touch panel on the back of the phone rather than the front of the display and utilizes the back with a keyboard as well. For all of you Social Networking freaks, the Motorola Backflip also supports the ever popular Twitter and Facebook accounts as well.
These are two of the top networks in the world, even overrunning that of Myspace. For those of us that are looking for a unique design, but also want something super-lightweight and a nice picture resolution, the Motorola Backflip offers a mere 133 grams and 320x480 pixels which are pretty awesome stats for a cell phone of this stature. This is a nice phone for basic usage, but it is also spectacular for gaming, watching movies, listening to music, and talking to your friends using the unique QWERTY design option of the Motorola Backflip. As with most QWERTY enabled phones, this one does take some getting used to, but in the end it will be as natural as the air you breath!
