AT&T Motorola Backflip Hardware Tour

Advertisement

In this video, we cover the hardware on AT&T’s first Android phone, the Moto Backflip. True to its name, the Backflip has a keyboard the flips open from the back. When you open the keyboard, you are also presented with an interesting trackpad on the back of the screen, which you can use as a D-Pad and selector. While the trackpad is useful for scrolling on the web, because you have to have the keyboard open to use it, its utility is limited.

Overall the build quality on the Backflip is quite nice. It’s not really an elegant device, nor is it slender, but it seems to be targeted towards a younger crowd that appreciates a quirky and fun form factor. In case you missed it, check out our unboxing!
