To connect to cellular networks, class 12 versions of both EDGE & GPRS are utilised in all but the most isolated areas. In areas covered by 3G, an internet connection is provided by HSDPA at speeds of up to 7.2 mega bytes per second. Wi-Fi can be utilised in areas where wireless internet routers are located. By taking advantage of the signal provided by these, a faster internet connection can be achieved, and therefore an enhanced web browsing experience.

An organiser, document viewer and voice memo recorder make the Backflip a functional everyday productivity tool.

By assigning music files as ringtones, users can customise their Backflip and hear the song of their choice whenever the phone rings. For talking handsfree, a speakerphone with stereo speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack are included.


Internal memory in the Backflip is 256MB as standard. This allows ample storage for a good number of files such as music tracks. A micro SD slot is included for the same purpose, with a pre-installed 2 GB memory card. This can be upgraded, however, to a card of up to 32 GB, allowing adequate storage a whole music collection for example.
