Motorola flips out with new square design for AT&T

Italian site has some new pics of the square-shaped Motorola phone we saw last month. Now called the Motorola Flipout, this phone will feature Android 2.1 with Motoblur, a 700 MHz processor (OMAP3430), and twist out QWERTY keyboard.

Even though the Flipout is one of the smallest Android phones, it will still pack quite a punch. The Texas Instruments OMAP3430 has an ARM Cortex-A8 based core, which means it can handle Flash 10.1 when available.

The leaked specs of the Flipout indicate it is headed for AT&T and last we heard it was scheduled for a June release. Depending when it launches, this could be the first device to feature Motorola’s new version of Motoblur for Android 2.1. Since we have AT&T and Motorola teaming up for another Android launch, expect a similar experience to what was offered with the Backflip.

Look for the Flipout to come in black, green, and pink when it launches. No price point was announced, but this is a mid-range Android phone so we expect it to retail around $149 with 2yr contract.

Highlights of the Flipout specs include:

  • 2.8 inch QVGA display (320×420)
  • 700 MHz processor TI OMAP3410
  • 512 MB ROM, 256 MB RAM
  • 3.1 MP camera
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth
  • 940 mAh battery
