The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TECHNOLOGY -

MO­TOROLA is on an An­droid roll lately and the lat­est in the line from the com­pany are the Charm and the FlipOut, both of which are mes­sag­ing-cen­tric phones with Qw­erty key­pads.

Both the Charm and FlipOut share sim­i­lar fea­tures such as a 2.8in (320 x 240-pixel) QVGA TFT screen, FM ra­dio re­ceiv


Charm Blue­tooth 2.1, WiFi, USB 2.0, 3megapixel dig­i­tal cam­era, 512MB ROM, 512MB RAM, aGPS, dig­i­tal com­pass and a Mi­croSD slot with a 2GB card in­cluded.

Both run An­droid 2.1 and come with all the usual ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing a We­bKit-based browser, ac­cess to e-mail, Google Search, Google Maps and the GoogleTalk client. The ca­pac­i­tive screens on both phones also sup­port multi-touch ges­tures.

The biggest dif­fer­ence be­tween the Charm and the FlipOut is the way the Qw­erty key­pad is de­signed — while the Charm is a can­dy­bar phone with a key­pad in­te­grated be­low the screen, the FlipOut has a unique key­pad de­sign that ro­tates out from un­der the screen when you need it.

The Mo­torola FlipOut is avail­able for RM1,299 while the Charm will go for RM1,399.

How­ever, Maxis is an ex­clu­sive part­ner for the phones and you can get the the FlipOut for RM649 and RM799 for the Charm with any Maxis Value Plus or Data plan. ++++­
