Rogers just announced that they’re now selling the Motorola Flipout, an Android handset with a funky form factor, and the BlackBerry Curve 9300, which is little more than a 3G version of their 8520. Rogers joins Bell in offering the BlackBerry 9300, which has Wi-Fi, GPS, a QVGA screen, optical trackpad, and 256 MB of RAM, while the Motorola Flipout is a first for North America. It was announced back in June, and will come with Android 2.1, enhanced Motoblur with resizaeable widgets, 2.8″ QVGA display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and a 3 megapixel camera.
I’m still hella unimpressed with the BlackBerry 9300, but on Rogers it at least sort of makes sense, since unlike Bell, they never had the 8530 for 3G access in a cheap BlackBerry. The Flipout’s design is certainly eye-catching, but perhaps a little too kooky for some people. The form factor’s been played with by Nokia before, which I don’t think did so well. Maybe Android will get people to deal with the unconventional twisty style.
