Motorola BACKFLIP a.k.a Motorola Motus PDF Print E-mail

The Motorola BACKFLIP certainly looks like an Apple iPhone, you can clearly see that it comes with slightly roundish corners, and the display also looks very similar to the iPhone. Still, I find the BACKFLIP to be rather unique as you can turn the screen to the back and it functions just like any other touchscreen-based smartphones in the market. And when you want to use the QWERTY keyboard, you can always turn the display to the other side, and the keyboard is ready to be used. Also, the BACKFLIP cool phones will be based on the Android operating system as well, and if you love Google applications, you’ll definitely like the applications that come together with these cool phones.

Here are the Motorola BACKFLIP cool phones specifications:

Cool Phones

Generally, the Motorola BACKFLIP or also known as the Motus is a rather unique phone indeed. I don’t think that any other phones in the market have the backflip QWERTY keyboard, in which you can use to type on your cell phone. Also, this particular phone comes with Motorola’s BACKTRACK touch panel, as well as the MOTOBLUR UI with Live Widgets. On the other hand, just like any other Android based smartphones in the market, this particular phone also come with all of Google’s applications, namely Google Maps and etc.

Persoanally, I find these cool phones to be truly amazing. With 2GB of onboard memory and up to 32GB of expandable memory, you can store a lot of data on the phone. This gives you practically unlimited entries for your phonebook and call records as well. Also, you can expect to surf the internet anywhere and anytime as the BACKFLIP comes with all the necessary connectivity, namely, HSDPA, GPRS, EDGE, and even WiFi. To tell you the truth, I like the Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and Photobucket integration to be truly handy, as I use these applications regularly.

Well if you are looking for a special phone, perhaps you should take a closer look at the Motorola BACKFLIP or a.k.a Motus cool phones.
