    questions about backflip

    hello all im a new user to the forum and a newbie when it comes to androids in general, but iv heard some awesome things about them and im tied to at&t for a while longer and am planning to use my sisters upgrade (she bought a unlocked blackberry storm so has no use for it) to get the backflip

    so my questions are:
    does it have an
    accelerometer (i read a review that said it didnt, but no one else mentioned it)
    compass (im guessing that may be an accelerometer, but the people on google skymaps video said if your phone doesnt have a "compass" then you could only use it manually

    does it have or will it ever have flash 10.1?

    i know allot of people are *****ing about the specs but it honestly doesnt seem so bad, especially when compared to like the g1 and others, seems the same to me.

    and would anyone happen to know when the other android phones will be announced for at&t. im guessing there all going to have the same bs yahoo search and crapware.

    thanks!

    main questions are accelerometer, compass, flash 10.1

    Compass works once you configure it. I've asked the same thing about Flash, it currently doesn't have it I'm gathering.

    Welcome to the forums. Yes the phone does have accelrometer, it also has compass which is used for google sky maps and compass apps which can be downloaded in the market. At this point we dont know if it will get flash 10.1. It will be upgraded to 2.1 though so we can only hope. Att will be getting the nexus1 which will be about 600 dollars, HTC desire and 3 other phones i cant think of off the top of my head.

    Well even if AT&T does get more phones and hopefully they still pick up the Desire as rumored, I will not be letting this phone go. I'm hoping HTC sells an unbranded version of Desire though. They are so much freer than company branded phones and are not restricted as company phones make em.

    But I think Backflip is underrated and will a better phone with the firmware updates.

    Rumor has it, that we are suppose to be seeing an update within the next weeks. But weeks can turn into months when your waiting for an official update.
