Motorola FlipoutWord of the Flipout first leaked out in the spring, and an unconfirmed report at that time said it was headed for the U.S. A more recent report indicates that it will be offered by AT&T.

Exactly when this is going to happen is not yet known, and neither is the price to be charged.

Overview of the Motorola Flipout
Motorola has been experimenting with different designs for phones, and it is trying out a one with a flip-around display.

The Motorola Flipout will apparently be an entry-level model with 2.8-inch Touchscreen that can rotate around to expose a small keyboard and D-pad.

It will run Android OS 2.1 on a 700 MHz processor with 256 MB of RAM, if a leaked set of specifications is correct.

In addition, the Flipout is going to include MotoBlur, Motorola’s software that brings together messages from a range of social-networking services like Facebook and Twitter, text messages, as well as consumer and business email accounts, into a universal inbox.

This GPS phone will reportedly include HSPA 3G, a GPS receiver and a 3.1 megapixel camera.

Motorola is targeting this product at younger consumers, and it will come in a range of casing colors, including black, green, blue, and pink.
