AT&T has launched its first Android smart device in the Motorola Backflip after months of anticipation.
The Backflip is also noted for being the first Android device to not feature any Google services, being replaced by equivalent Yahoo! services, owing to the carrier’s current agreement with the beleaguered search provider.
Technical specifications for the Backflip consist of a 3.1 inch HVGA resolution touch display, Android 1.5 with a future upgrade to Android 2.1, hardware and software QWERTY keyboard, quadband GSM/EDGE, triband HSPA, 5.0 megapixel camera with autofocus, video recorder and flash, speakerphone, Bluetooth with stereo audio support and microSDHC expansion slot.
Pricing is set at $199.99 after new 2 year agreement before an additional $100 mail-in rebate via debit card, bringing the total to $99.99.
