We always want our gadgets to be cool and good-looking aside from being useful. Most of the time, good-looking gadgets are those thin ones with nicely curved bodies. At times though, manufacturers would go out of the usual path and create something unique. And, this is what the Motorola Flipout is all about–a unique smartphone that is different from the usual candy bar style.

The Flipout is not your typical smartphone. It features a small 2.8-inch display which, when flipped out, reveals a QWERTY keyboard. We’re not just talking about a screen sliding upwards when you flip it; we are talking about some unique method where the screen pivots around a point in its bottom right corner and flips around.

The uniqueness of this smartphone, however, seems to end with its form factor. The device is built with a typical 600 MHz Cortex-A8 TI OMAP 3410 processor and runs Android 2.1 Éclair. One good thing though is that, since it’s an Android device, we can root this smartphone to extend its capabilities.
