Techie Saturday > Flipout Phone

I really want to have this phone!

It’s compact, cute and has awesome features, too.

I’m just puzzled why AT&T will be the first one to release it before Motorola.

According to Motorola (US), this model is soon to be released

but it will be available from AT&T on October 17th for $79.99 (w/ a 2-year contract)

Hopefully, Motorola will have it available for retail soon enough

so I can grab one of those cuties before christmas ;o)

I’ll be saving up for this phone.
