| Motorola Inc. confirmed Thursday that its Backflip mobile phone will be available at AT&T in March, making it the carrier’s first device powered by Google’s Android operating system.

Motorola announced the Backflip at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month. It was widely expected that the phone was headed toward AT&T, which plans to release five Android smart phones during the first half of 2010. The phone will be available on March 7 and cost $99.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. Consumers must sign up for a smart phone data plan and two-year contract with AT&T.

The Backflip folds over to reveal a physical keyboard that is larger
than that of the Droid, Motorola’s Android smart phone at Verizon
Wireless. The Backflip also has a small touch pad on its rear so that
users can navigate the main screen from behind. With this design
feature, users can swipe through a photo slideshow without covering the
main screen with their fingers, for example.
