And so the rollout of MOTOBLUR handsets begins in the True North Strong and Free as TELUS today announced the immediate availability of the Motorola BACKFLIP. Featuring a unique reverse-hinge QWERTY keypad design with a BACKTRACK navigation pad on the reverse, the BACKFLIP also boasts a 3.1″ HVGA capacitive display, 5 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, 512MB of internal memory, microSD support, and MOTOBLUR atop Android 1.5. Now, you’d think this phone would be priced along the lines of AT&T’s $99.99 on contract but you’d be wrong — it’s currently listed on TELUS’ website for $249.99 on a 3-year plan. If this isn’t a typo… Yeah.

UPDATE: Looks like TELUS made a typo on their website. $249.99 is the contract price without a data plan. With data it’s $99.99. Thank heavens.
