It’s been ages since we last talked about the Motorola Flipside, a QWERTY slider that looks like a little brother to the Droid lineup with the unusual inclusion of an optical trackpad. When the smartphone launched late last fall, it shipped with Android 2.1 Eclair. That was annoying enough at the time, but Flipside users have been stuck with Eclair ever since. We’d have thought that Motorola had forgotten about the phone, when all of a sudden the company has revealed an official update to Froyo.

We haven’t heard anything about this update going out OTA, but you can easily download and install it yourself. Doing so will require you have an SD card in the Flipside with at least 100MB of free space, in addition to at least 40MB free on the smartphone’s internal flash. There’s nothing to install on your PC – just copy the appropriate files to the phone’s SD card and you can install directly on the device.

Don’t expect to ever see an official Gingerbread update come to the Flipside, but we’re sure that its owners are happy enough just getting Froyo after all this time.
