Motorola Flipout Rumored for AT&T

Motorola announced the Flipout handset earlier this month, tapping it as a European release later this quarter. According to an anonymous tipster for Android Central, it’s arriving stateside on AT&T as well. The uniquely-designed device features Android 2.1 with an updated version of MOTOBLUR, and a 3 megapixel camera. It’s definitely not a high-end phone by any stretch however it could have a mass market appeal thanks to its form factor.

I can’t say that I am surprised AT&T would offer this phone. It feels exactly like the type of Android handset I’d expect to see on Ma Bell’s network. With the exception of the Samsung Captivate, the carrier has consistently shown they aren’t pushing for strong, powerful phones.  The Android Central tipster claims the phone uses Yahoo for search as opposed to Google.  Again, not much of a shock.  Anybody want to wager whether or not AT&T restricts access to applications outside of the Android Market?
