Motorola Backflip Hits China Before Coming Stateside

Rumored to be AT&T’s first Android handset, the Motorola Backflip has been spotted in China. Available for 4,298 Chinese yuan (approx $629 US), the Backflip comes unlocked with an 8GB memory card and a car charger. We’ve yet to hear what price point to expect with or without contract once it hits US soil. Known in China as the Backflip ME600, the phone features a 320×480 touchscreen display, QWERTY keyboard, a 5 mega-pixel camera, WiFi, HSDPA, GPS, and a 3.5mm headset jack.  The Backflip also runs MOTOBLUR based around Android 1.6 OS.

    Boring. Every new Android phone needs at least 1GB RAM- and 512MB ROM. SD cards are nice, but there needs to be more on-board memory for the phone to run smooth and to have decent space for apps. Also, 3.7 inch screen needs to be the standard.
