Motorola has been experimenting with different designs for phones, and its next effort is going to feature 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.
The Motorola Flipout will be released in the United States in June, if an unconfirmed report is correct. However, there is no word yet on which carrier(s) will be offering it.
Also unknown is the price, though given its feature set this won’t be an expensive smartphone.
