DALLAS — AT&T outlined its smartphone
roadmap, launching the Android based
Motorola Backflip and announcing
plans for four additional Android phones
and two Palm WebOS-based phones later
this year.

The carrier previously said it would offer
phones with the new Microsoft Windows
Phone 7 OS late in the year.

In announcing plans to offer the Backfl
ip on March 7 at $99 after $100 mailin
promotion-card rebate, AT&T said
the device would be its 11th phone with
7.2Mbps HSPA.

The Backflip features an unusual “reverse
QWERTY flip” design. When
folded shut, a 3.1-inch OLED touchscreen
appears on one side of the device
and a QWERTY keyboard appears on
the reverse side.

The Backflip operates in 3G mode in
AT&T’s 850/1,900MHz bands as well
as in foreign 2.1GHz bands.
