The 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and dual LED flash DVD-quality video camera is a nice perk.

The Backflips Cousin

The screen, a new take on the Motorola Backflip, is 2.8 inches and "flips out." Expect the device, which sports Motoblur, in Q4.

On the Flipside

Another friendly flipper due in Q4, the Android 2.1-based Flipside is ideal for landscape mode. The device has a 3.1-inch display. We'll call it the cousin of the Flipout and Backflip.
