It looks similar to a laptop, complete with a screen and a QWERTY keypad. He only difference you might notice is the size. It is tiny compared to even a netbook. We are talking of the new smartphone that has been lined up by Motorola. The company has had not much need to seek a name for the phone it seems. The properties it possesses has made the device to be called the Backflip. Motorola might start selling the new handset this March.

The new Motorola Backflip handset has been designed in such a way that you can open the cellphone horizontally like a laptop. So if want to text, you just have to flip the screen around 90-plus degrees. As it flips, the keypad lights up to make typing hassle-free. It is built as if you can do an inside out flipping it backwards as you want. Interesting, isn’t it?

The design itself is awesome. The keypad comes with a textured grip making even more user-friendly. Now, for the display. The 13.1 inch LCD is touch-enabled, which means all you have to do to open the links on the screen is to scroll with a gentle touch and a double tap. When we say back flip, we also mean you can flip the screen up around 45 degrees and make it sit like a laptop on the table so that it even doubles up as a picture viewer.

An Android 1.5 based phone, the Motorola Backflip comes complete with 5 home panels and Motorola Blur software.

Other features include a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash mounted on the rear/keyboard. The keyboard comes with four rows of keys. On the power front, the device can run uninterrupted for at least 6 hours on a single charge. The phone will debut on the AT&T network. All we need to know now is the price.
