We haven't heard anything about this update going out OTA, but you can easily download and ...

    When we first unboxed the Motorola Flipside we were only able to sneak a quick peek at the devices UI and implementation of MotoBlur with the preloaded Android 2.1 OS. Now, it's time to get down to business. For part 1 of our software overview on the Motorola Flipside, we take a quick tour of MotoBlur and its functionality.

One unique aspect here is the inclusion of a trackpad for navigating through the UI. The innards of the Flipside are made up of a 720MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and an equal 512MB of ROM.
