I wasn’t too kind to the Flipout when we first covered it here, and I can’t say that the official announcement has done much to change my mind.
If it weren’t for the strange form factor (why can’t Motorola just stick to what we know works?), the phone would be another mid to low-range Android handset. For those of you in the States that think it’s hip to be square (see what I did there?), you’re going to have to wait a bit before you can get your hands on this perplexing device as it’s slated to hit Europe first – apparently by the end of Q2 2010 (seeing as how it’s June already, the launch should be imminent).

Another week another leak – we’re visited once again by our old friend the Droid Shadow (AKA: Droid Xtreme/Droid X), this time with two new pictures and few tidbits about the phone’s software.
In case you’re out of the loop, the Droid Shadow is said to be Motorola’s latest addition to Verizon’s Droid brand, which we’ve covered here and here (note that I incorrectly referred to the Shadow as the Droid 2 – from what I’ve read since, this is not the case). This time, Droid Life was sent a few pics from a tipster that claimed to have a bit more information on the phone’s software:
- Android 2.2
- 9 home screens
- No Motoblur
- Dedicated camera button
- “Very metal”
- HDMI out
The ‘No Motoblur’ part is a bit strange, especially since Motoblur was pretty prominently shown on the ‘Getting Started’ manual.
