Motorola Backflip was implied by AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega this morning to be one of the five Androids his company would be releasing in the first half, not to mention all the leaks we’ve seen of the device over the last couple months.
Motorola Backflip has a reverse-flip QWERTY keyboard with 3.1? HVGA touchscreen. The phone is a flip version of the CLIQ, and here’s the kicker: the QWERTY keyboard is on the outside of the phone, not the inside. Instead of the keyboard flipping inwards, it flips outwards.
On the back of the touchscreen you’ll find a trackpad, another completely unique feature of the Backflip. The trackpad gives you a new way of flicking through different menus on the screen, not to mention scrolling through the web browser and other various apps. In fact, Motorola plans to publish the API for the trackpad so Android devs can access it and use the trackpad for their own apps on the Backflip.

* Android OS with MotoBLUR; will be upgradeable to 2.1
