Piecing Things Togther: Leak Tips Motorola MB511 Ruth as ‘Flipout’

We learned back in January that Motorola had an MB511 handset in the works thanks to the sleuths at cellphone signal.  At the time, we speculated that the design might look something like a Motorola Q.  We’ve also been gathering bits of information lately on the oddly-designed ‘Flipout‘ smartphone.  The folks at zumo (translated) have posted an image that indicates that the two phones are one in the same.

Not groundbreaking by any means, but it’s nice to see the puzzle coming together for this phone.  So far we’re hearing the Fliopout will be Android 2.1 with an updated version of MotoBlur and will have hardware that includes the following:

  • 3.1 MP camera
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • 2.8 “display
  • 512 ROM
  • 256 MB RAM
  • GPS
  • 700 MHz processor

We’ll find out soon enough whether the rumored June release is correct!

  • So far every comment I've read on this phone from reviewers and pundits alike indicate that there is great hatred for this phone. Most of this seems to stem from the general hatred of MotoBlur, which is justified, but the hardware it's self appears to be unique and rather attractive. It's at least a form factor change from the norm that I feel is a breath of fresh air. I'm sure in short order it'll be open to throwing down cyanogen or some other alternate rom devoid of MotoBlur and the specs aren't bad for a low end Android device. Why is this getting so much hate?

    My Flipout arrived in this mornings post, and first 6 hours of use, im rather impressed. keyboard is surprisingly easy to use, screen res is good for display size, the node is a little awkward but being touch screen its not really needed, the cam isn’t best but im not a big pic taker
