Motorola's FLIPOUT Is Official, Hitting Europe Soon

Motorola finally announced the square Android 2.1 powered QWERTY keyboard smartphone, the FLIPOUT. The phone, marketed towards the younger audience, sports features designed for individuals with social networking in mind, with "Facebook, MySpace and photo-hosting sites" integration included.

Engadget notes that "Euro readers can expect it imminently, as the listed Q2 2010 launch date basically means it'll be out by month's end."

The first time we saw the phone was back in mid-April and here we are with it's release just around the corner. AndroidCentral writes that there is unfortunately no official word on pricing, but Gizmodo Brazil reported awhile ago a price that translates into about $390 USD for the phone itself.
