I am lookin to buy the backflip, should I?
This is a discussion on backflip within the Motorola Backflip forums, part of the Motorola Android Phones category; I am lookin to buy the backflip, should I?...
If you are looking to buy a cheap used phone online somewhere, sure. If you are looking to buy a new phone from ATT, I'd suggest to look at some of the other phones. If I were buying now, I'd pick either the Samsung Captivate or the Motorola Bravo. There is also the rumored Motorola Olympus coming soon that looks to be pretty impressive.
If you do decide to get a Backflip, it's not THAT bad. There are some interesting developments coming with the custom ROMs, most notably j_r0dd's Preclair ROM. It now has multitouch and he is working on getting an overclocked kernel and and getting the FM tuner working.

Well the others have been quite helpful but I would like to add that the backflips main selling point to me is the physical keyboard. My fingers are just to big for touch screen keyboards, plus I like to have the feel of the keys underneath my fingers.
