slashgear has just done a really nice review of the BACKFLIP by AT&T. This phone has been known recently as the first Android without Google Search, it was replaced by Yahoo Search. Motorola has been cranking out Android devices since the release of their first, the Cliq. This is their fourth release for the US market and the fifth overall, this is quite an amazing feat considering that they entered on the scene late in the game.
promised to deliver more Android handsets in 2010, and considering they only pushed out a single model in 2009 that isn't exactly a difficult challenge they've set themselves. Details on the first new device have now emerged, courtesy of the Bluetooth SIG: the Acer E110. Confirmed specifications are scant right now. The E110 will have dualband UMTS/HSDPA (either 900/2100MHz or 850/1900MHz, suggesting both European and US AT&T availability) together with quadband GSM, and obviously we're expecting Bluetooth (with A2DP support) as well. Then there's GPS and AGPS, together with a touchscreen. Other than that it's a mystery, but with Mobile World Congress 2010 just next week there's a fair chance we could see the Acer E110 make its official debut. [via Unwired View]
company's FCC report. The device - which resembles their existing Archos 5 PMP, but uses Google's mobile OS - has been confirmed as the Archos A5S (7501), as well as having an untested sibling device, the A5H (7501). The Archos A5S has WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and both an FM receiver and transmitter, together with a touchscreen and - going by the single image of the device powered on, which you can see in the gallery below - a custom UI on top of the standard Android interface. While the FCC did not test any integrated 3G connectivity option, the (incomplete) user manual does suggest that at least one model will have it; it's been speculated that this could be the differentiating factor of the Archos A5H. There's also a microSD card slot and microUSB ports. We're expecting the Archos Android MID to be officially announced on September 15th, hopefully with a price that puts it firmly in the "affordable companion device" category. [gallery] [via SlashGear]
