Good news for those of you who are fans of Motorola's Backflip and its somewhat funky form factor. AT&T now offers the backward flipping smartphone for $99 through its website.
There are a couple of caveats, of course. To get below the $100 price point, you'll have to play the mail-in-rebate game, which comes in the form of an AT&T Promotion Card "valid wherever VIsa is accepted, and for 120 days after issue date." You'll also need to commit to a 2-year service agreement and $30 per month data service.
What you get in return is an Android 1.5-based smartphone capable of being upgraded to Android 2.1. The Backflip also sports a 5MP camera with 4X zoom, 3.1-inch touchscreen with a 480 x 320 resolution, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card expansion up to 32GB, and a 1380 mAh battery Motorola claims amounts to up to 6 hours of talk time and 13.5 days of standby.
