Motorola’s time to shine at CES just wrapped up and the North American manufacturer announced the Motorola BACKFLIP. As rumored, the BACKFLIP will have a backwards-folding, outward-facing keyboard, a touchpad on the back of the screen whose functionality is customizable and even API-accessible, 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, a 5 megapixel camera and MOTOBLUR. The BACKFLIP is headed to multiple carriers worldwide including one North American carrier, not identified by Motorola but we will spill the beans — AT&T. In addition to the BACKFLIP, Motorola revealed some additional information that will interest current Motorola Android owners:
- All Motorola Android handsets, including the CLIQ, will be updated to Android 2.1
- Motorola is working on Flash 10.1 integration, is optimized for the DROID’s chipset and will be pushed out the DROID at some time in the future
- Motorola DROID will receive a second maintenance update in the near future
Motorola kept is short and sweet so that is all folks!
