Motorola Backflip (ME600) available now – but only in China
The Backflip appears as Motorola ME600 on Moto China’s website, and it costs 4,298 Chinese yuan unlocked (an 8GB memory card and a car charger are included in this price) – that’s about $629, so AT&T will probably (hopefully) sell the phone for $200 or less on contract.
The features of Motorola Backflip ME600 include a 320 x 480 pixels touchscreen display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi (and WAPI), GPS, full QWERTY keyboard, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera, and Android with MotoBlur.

Back to AT&T, the second largest US mobile carrier should launch the Motorola Backflip in March – and it looks like it has already ordered about 400,000 units of it. The phone is surely interesting, although the weird form factor might scare some customers off.
