Thanks to a combination of unique styling and impressive specifications, the Motorola Backflip is one of the most appealing handsets to date from the manufacturer.  Its key features include a five mega pixel digital camera, a combination of touchscreen technology and a flip out QWERTY keyboard (hence the name) and Wi-Fi Internet access.

The five mega pixel digital camera boasts a pixel resolution of 2560x 1920,Guest Posting resulting in high quality still images.  The inclusion of an LED flash and Autofocus simplify the task of taking quality photos even in low lighting conditions.  The increasingly popular geo-tagging facility is included which automatically records the location at which a photo was taken based on GPS.  The ability to shoot video is included within the camera, and this is in CIF quality at a rate of 30 frames per second offering an alternative method of image capture.


The dimensions of the Motorola Backflip are 108x 53x 15.3 millimetres resulting in a relatively pocket friendly handset whilst remaining large enough to take advantage of the touchscreen.  A relatively light weight of 133 g means the Motorola Backflip is far from obtrusive so users will barely notice carrying it round in their pocket.


A micro SD slot comes with a pre-installed 2 GB memory card for storage of data such as media files.  However users can increase the amount of storage available simply by swapping the card for an upgraded one of up to 32 GB.  This should prove ample for the needs of most users as is capable of storing an entire digital music collection or a large number of video clips or photos etc.  The Motorola Backflip has an internal phonebook which can store a practically unlimited number of entries and fields and also boasts the popular Photocall feature.  This allows a photo to be assigned to contact within the phonebook and is then displayed on screen whenever that person calls.


A number of different methods are utilised in order to provide the Motorola Backflip with optimum connectivity to the Internet and cellular networks based upon location and network coverage.  In order to connect to cellular networks, class 12 versions of both GPRS & EDGE are utilised.  In areas covered by 3G, an HSDPA connection provides access to the Internet at speeds of up to 7.2 mega bytes per second.  Whenever a signal is detected from a wireless Internet router, Wi-Fi Technology kicks in providing a faster Internet connection and therefore an enhanced web browsing experience.  In order to connect the Motorola Backflip two other hardware devices such as compatible phones and computers both Bluetooth and micro USB connections are installed as standard.


The TFT capacitive touchscreen measures 3.1 inches and utilises a pixel layout of 320x 480 pixels in order to display up to 256K colours resulting in excellent clarity and detail of on screen imagery.  An accelerometer sensor is built in which rotates the on screen image based upon the orientation of the phone allowing content to be viewed in both portrait and landscape forms.  As mentioned, a reverse flip QWERTY keyboard offers an efficient means of entering text so is ideal for those who prefer the use of a physical keyboard over that of a touchscreen.


It’s unique and somewhat quirky appearance is sure to attract many users whilst the impressive list of specifications keeps tech savvy users satisfied.
