In this video we demonstrate the hardware of the new Motorola Flipout MB511. The phone packs quite the punch for such a small package. The Android 2.1 device is powered by a Texas Instruments 720 MHz process along with 512 MB of RAM and ROM. The phone sports the usual Android hardware like a digital compass, accelerometer, aGPS, light and proximity sensors.
The screen on the other hand is quite mediocre at just 2.8 inches and QVGA resolution it leaves one rather unimpressed, especially due to the fact that Motorola integrated older TFT LCD technology. This older technology may cause the image to be distorted at various angles of view. A couple positive features of the screen is that it is made of glass and incorporates multi-touch.
The Flipout is a mere 67 x 67 x 16.8 mm in dimension and weights about 120 grams. The full 5 row Qwerty keyboard is great to type on and makes few mistakes with average sized fingers. The 3.1 MP camera takes adequate photos and has a rather robust zooming feature. Stay tuned for the software tour coming up next and in case you missed it check out the unboxing.
