Motorola Backflip reaches AT&T at $100

Moto Backflip becomes first ATT Android phone

As expected, AT&T today added the Motorola Backflip to its roster. The carrier's first Android phone centers on its unique control scheme, which we saw in action at CES: the QWERTY keyboard flips out from behind the display and also lets users handle touch features through a surface behind the screen. AT&T's version uses the stock software, which centers on the MOTOBLUR interface on top of Android 1.5.

The smartphone has the same features as unveiled last month and carries a 3.1-inch touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. Only 2GB of microSD storage comes with the Backflip, but the card slot supports up to 32GB.

AT&T ships the Backflip on March 7th and will keep the price low for Android at $100 when attached to a two-year smartphone plan and a large $100 mail-in rebate or likely up-front online discount.
