We can smell the between the two networks. To help you out in choosing the right network to trust, All We Like gathered the most important information about the two networks and their own versions of the story.

What can AT&T do?

AT&T is popular for using GSM or the Global System for Mobile Communications. A network technology infrastructure capable of handling voice and data at the same time. However it is only connected to 1 tower at a time which results to a “hard handoff” from tower to tower.

Sway with Motorola Flipout

Written on October 09, 2010 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

The Motorola Flipout reminds us of the Nokia Twist and a little of the Motorola Charm with its shape and how Android fits inside the tiny phone. And Motorola Flipout is definitely hitting the glass this month from AT&T.

Motorola announced last Tuesday that Motorola Flipout will be coming to the US via AT&T. The tiny, square phone swivels open to reveal a QWERTY keyboard, and it seems odd to see the Android on such a small screen. The Motorola Flipout is powered by Android 2.1, has enhanced MotoBlur interface, a 3 megapixel camera with Kodak Perfect Touch technology, WiFi, GPS, 3G and Motorola’s CrystalTalk. It is 2.63 x 2.63 x 0.67 in dimension and has a very usable keyboard despite its size.

The Motorola Flipout is slated to target the young, fashionable crowd with their interchangeable battery covers. It comes with Dark Sapphire and Saffron color covers, and will be available on October 17 for $79.99 following a two-year contract.
