I think the Flipout is uglier, but this phone is pretty bad too, based on that video I saw. *shudder*My Smartphone Journey on Big Red:

That's true. I'm really not into mid-range phones, but this device is just a shame. If they hadn't put that ugly trackpad there, or placed a tiny optical one, they could of gotten the touchscreen up to 3.4 or 3.5 inches, maybe more, and this would of been a decent little mid-range QWERTY.

there is nothing wrong with the mid/entry-level devices, but people who have used other smartphones in the past should not have much issue jumping in on a high-end device

I just got my Flipside. First android device. I have a Crackberry for work and HATE it.
Criteria for the folks at ATT was No Crackberry, No Windows, Need keyboard.
I am happy so far. Trying to figure out how to hide/disable/remove all the pay apps
that ATT puts on that clutter up the screen.

I was looking at this one a bit, but it was so new that there weren’t any reviews on it yet and the guy at the ATT store pretty much panned it, so I went with the Aria, which I’m very happy with and had been out for awhile so I knew what I was getting.

I got the Flipside as a backup phone and a way to check out Android. At the time I got it, I was still stuck on the idea of having a physical keyboard. I'm an Android convert now and no longer stuck on the need for a physical keyboard. An Atrix is in the plans for the main phone replacement.

I have had this phone a couple of months, and I actually like it (now). The biggest issues are the low storage (combined with the inability to use the SD card for much), and all the pre-loaded apps that can't be removed.
For me, it was between this and the iPhone, but the physical keyboard was the real selling point for this.
I also had some battery issues for a while, where I could only get 5-6 hours out of a charge during normal use. I fixed that by getting rid of all the social networking widgets, and installing LauncherPro as the interface to replace the built-in one. This set-up also provides much better performance from the phone than I was getting before.
Another tip if you have this phone: Do NOT use the "auto-end" list in the Task Manager app. It will absolutely kill the battery, and it seems to me it was causing some of the slowness on the phone when I tried using it.
