Video: Motorola Backflip receives hands-on treatment

Motorola has shown off their rather strange Motorola Backflip handset and the guys over at engadget managed to grab a little hands-on playtime with the new device from Motorola, which they say they are not quite sure what to make of the handset.

When the Motorola Backflip is in its closed position it resembles the Motorola CLIQ and the keyboard on the back remains unlit, but when you activate the full QWERTY keyboard which opens backwards it lights up.

Currently the Motorola Backflip runs Android 1.5 with MotoBlur the same as the Motorola CLIQ however, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha has stated that the Motorola Backflip will receive an upgrade to Android 2.1 at some point.

Anyway, enough of me, we have that video of the Motorola Backflip for your viewing pleasure which can be located below and lets you know most of the basics of the phone, so hit it up and check it out.

    From what I’ve seen in other reviews you need to open the phone up to a 90 degree angle and not 45 to go into table top mode. (Looks like some people need a basic geometry review!) That is why you were having an issue getting it to show the alarm clock.

    Also, the backtrack is another option for you to navigate, You can always still use the front screen and get it smudgy like all other handsets on the market today.
