Brilliant little machine

This is a hell of a lot of machine for the money. I am something of a luddite and put off getting a replacement phone for years and eventually opted for the Flipout simply because it had the simple features I wanted (phone, wifi, a basic camera and QWERTY keyboard) while looking a bit more interesting than most of the iPhone clones on the market. The flipout has exceeded my expectations. The keyboard is fantastic - you can easily touch type using one hand and though the home screen customization takes a bit of getting used to, it works provided you don't try to cram too much on. Much to my surprise I have even used some of the newsfeed and social networking options that were certainly not part of my original intentions. The criticism of battery life is valid. I turn the screen brightness to the minimum, only turn wifi on when needed and never turn Bluetooth on and get about 24 hours maximum, but a full charge only takes about an hour. So a spare battery would probably be a good idea. Camera takes rather dark and blurry shots, though these can be cleaned up at a touch of the button thanks to some Kodak software on board. But if you want camera quality pics, you should probably buy a camera. These minor negatives are easily outweighed by the numerous positives of this well made and ingenious little machine. It attracts lots of comments too - mainly from envious Blackberry and iPhone users struggling with their keyboards.

Motorola Flipout

The phone is simply fantastic. It has done every thing I expected so far. I don't need nor would I expect a 3MP camera to take fantastic photos. I bought it for ALL the OTHER features of the phone.
