400,000 Motorola Backflip Android phones ordered by AT&T?

Although it’s the last major US carrier to launch Android phones, AT&T seems to be betting heavily on Google’s open source mobile platform.

According to Eldar Murtazin (who is, most of the time, right), AT&T has ordered 400,000 Motorola Backflip handsets, and it might even order more – which means that the carrier is hoping to sell them like hot cakes.

Motorola Backflip was officially announced two days ago, and it’s a unique handset, thanks to the reverse flip design.

The Backflip features Android 1.5 (so says Motorola), MotoBlur, a 3.1 HVGA touchscreen display, quad-band GSM and tri-band HSDPA connectivity (850 / 1900 / 2100 MHz), Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Android Webkit browser, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera, and a full QWERTY keyboard.

We don’t know the price and the exact release date of Motorola Backflip, but AT&T should unveil these details pretty soon.

Other Android smartphones that will be launched by AT&T include the Dell Mini 3 and an HTC-made device.

    This phone looks terrible, the processor is outdated and the screen is tiny. Also the ATT custom apps probably are nowhere near as good as google maps. After all who ever heard of ATT Maps. Probably ATT trying to lock the phone down to get control. Well I certainly won't be buying one. I hope the Dell Mini 3 is better….
