has launched Google Android OS running FlipOut in India. This
smartphone has a square form factor and supports 3G network. Bearing a
2.8-inch Rotator touchscreen, the new FlipOut handset's top can be
swiveled to reveal the five-row QWERTY keyboard. This handset was
announced last month and will hit the Indian shores at a Best Buy price
of Rs. 15,990.
Back in May, images as well as details of Motorola FlipOut were leaked
on the web. Resembling Microsoft's now discontinued Kin One handset,
the new FlipOut will compete with Sony Ericsson's Xperia X10 Mini and
X10 Mini Pro handsets which are around same price range but bear a
smaller form factor.
New Motorola FlipOut features a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen offering
320x240 pixel resolution. Running Google Android 2.1 Eclair update, the
FlipOut can support up to seven customizable home screens, live
wallpapers and also brings Microsoft Exchange server support. Motorola
has used MOTOBLUR interface that syncs and merges emails, texts, social
networking messages, posts, feeds and status updates in two, easily
accessible widgets - Messages and Happenings.
Inside the casing, FlipOut has 700MHz processor, 512MB ROM and 256MB
RAM to run Android 2.1 smoothly. Shutterbug social media frenzy folks
can make use of 3 megapixel fixed focus digital zoom camera and quickly
upload the images online on social networks using the 3G networks or
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Location based services can be used with the
assisted-GPS with Google Maps and eCompass. We are sure that Google
Street View won't work here in India. With 2GB microSD card bundled
together, Flipout can support up to 32GB capacity microSD card.
Meant for the hep social networking frenzy youth crowd, this smartphone
surely comes with attractive price range and square form factor that
makes it stand out of the crowd. FlipOut would be available with four
replaceable back panel covers - Licorice (Black), Fairway Green, Poppy
Red and White.
