AT&T is seriously boosting its Android-based cell phone catalog with a trio of new Motorola devices: the Bravo, Flipout and Flipside.
Unfortunately but predictably, all three will start off with Android 2.1. Yet they will all include the enhanced version of Motoblur, which has been revamped with a focus on more facilitated social networking, screen personalization and widgets.
Now on to the phones. The first one out of the gates will be the Motorola Flipout, set to drop on October 17 for $79.99 with a two service agreement as well as a two year smartphone data plan.
Eager buyers will have to wait until the holiday season for the best two of the three, most notably the Bravo. The Flipside will retail for $99.99 while the Bravo will cost $129.99. Both of these will also require the signing of a two year service agreement and a two year smartphone data plan. The DNLA-equipped Bravo might really be the one to wait for (out of this trio) with an 800MHz processor and 3.7-inch full WVGA touchscreen.
Fortunately, none of the prices require mail-in rebates to achieve them, and each one is equipped with Wi-Fi, meaning they are ready for free use of AT&T Wi-Fi mobile hotspots nationwide.
