The Motorola BACKFLIP slide phones certainly drew thunderous amount of buzz when it was initially introduced by Motorola. And if you search top phone forums, I’m pretty sure that you’ll agree with me that this particular slide phone is one of the most famous one at present time. Generally, this particular phone does resemble the iPhone design at a quick glance, as the phone comes with slightly round-ish corners, which resembles the iPhone. On the other hand, what I like about the Motorola BACKFLIP is the fact that it comes with a nifty QWERTY keyboard at the bottom – which separates it entirely from the iPhone. According to top reviewers, they can’t stop praising the overall quality of the phone.

What I like the most about the Motorola BACKFLIP slide phones is the capacitive touchscreen capabilities. This means that you can easily slide around the touchscreen, without having to rely on the keypad at the bottom. However, I think Motorola should do a little more in upgrading the number of color which is supported by their phone, as the Motorola BACKFLIP only comes equipped with 256K color screen only. Also, the screen size for the BACKFLIP is a tiny little bit smaller when compared to the XPERIA X2 and the N900, whereby it measures only 3.1-inch.
Of course, if you are searching for Android-based slide phones, I’m pretty sure you’ll love the Motorola BACKFLIP. Generally, this particular phone is set to run on Android 1.5, but I’m thinking that Motorola might want to upgrade it to the latest Android 2.0 operating system, which was released not long ago.
Also, you can expect to snap good images via the phone, as the Motorola BACKFLIP comes with a nifty 5.0 megapixel autofocus sensor with LED flash. There’s even 2GB of onboard storage available, and if that’s not enough, the microSD can support up to 32GB of data. Do take note that the phone has a talk time of up to 6 hours, which I think is too good to be true.
Well the Motorola BACKFLIP slide phones certainly created a buzz in the market, but surely, it does come with a very appealing design right?
