On paper, the Motorola Flipout shouldn't work. Its rotating slideout keyboard design results in a small screen but not a particularly small phone, while its processor is a bit slow. Overall it smacks of a concept taken too far. However, Motorola has done the best it can with the idea, producing a phone that's very well made, has a great keyboard and wants for little in the way of features. It's also available for a great price.
Motorola has tried something different with the Flipout Android smartphone, but the end result is a clunky-feeling handset that is awkward to use. The Flipout is relatively cheap, but its display has a low resolution and an odd aspect ratio. There are much better alternatives on the market for a similar price.
It's designed for users who want to keep on top of their social lifestyle rather than their workload, and for teens and twenty-somethings, the Sidekick is a solid and fun device.
The bottom line: The T-Mobile Sidekick 3 brings some notable additions, such as Bluetooth and an MP3 player, and continues to be a solid messaging device for the younger crowd; we just wish it had a better screen.
Unpacking the Sidekick 3 is nice and simple.
Both celebrities and consumers have indulged themselves in T-Mobile’s Sidekick. The personal communication device is perfect for keeping in touch with friends, as well as e-mail and web browsing. Although the Sidekick II was immensely popular, it was lacking some much-needed features such as Bluetooth and EDGE. With the introduction of T-Mobile’s Sidekick 3 in July, many of these problems and missing features will be addressed.
throughout testing and the hands free speakerphone was loud and clear - perhaps one of the best we've seen.
The 7370 is a typical fashion handset – it substitutes quality and performance for the sake of design. This isn’t to say its bad in any sense, but it has a few flaws that prevent it from being as good as it could have.
