Rumor: Motorola Flipout coming to AT&T this Sunday, WP7 on Oct. 17Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
The other day we reported on the release info of a number of AT&T handsets, and today the leaks continue. First up is the Motorola Flipout, which we've seen leak for AT&T multiple times in the past and is allegedly coming to AT&T this Sunday. On October 3rd, we should be seeing the BlackBerry Pearl 3G and Curve 3G launch. A couple of weeks later on October 17th, the "Bravo" and "Flipside" by Motorola will be appearing on AT&T's shelves. There's no word on exactly what these handsets are, but considering they're made by Moto, it's a good bet that they'll be running Android. Samsung will be launching their "Patek" and "Universe" on October 17th, too, although those two handsets are just as mysterious as Motorola's. We should be seeing Windows Phone 7 around that time, so perhaps one of them is the Cetus?
I don't know about you, but I'm definitely glad to see AT&T continue to flesh out their Android lineup. It may not be the highest-specced Android handset available, but the Flipout is still a welcome addition to the carrier. Plus, you never know what the Bravo and Flipside will bring. Setting Android aside, it's always great to see more BlackBerrys, and the Pearl 3G and Curve 3G should definitely help attract some new smartphone owners to AT&T. Finally, we've got the possibility of Windows Phone 7. Considering that AT&T and T-Mobile will be the only place to get your hands on a WP7 handset, I'm even more excited for the new OS to land on ATT. Are any of you planning to pick up the square-ish Flipout this weekend?
