    Not sure all who read/heard about the Motorola Backflip, but most of us knew that Yahoo was going to be the main search engine for the phone, well apparently At&t has closed off the ability to install non-market content, making customers go through a bunch of ropes to get anything --- So sad about this, I have plenty of friends on At&t that were so excited about getting Android, and unfortunately with this information most are reluctant to purchase now - which I totally agree with, just too bad they are stuck in contract.

    Also keep in mind that a lot of people just don't care about this. They're looking for a good solid device that's functional and let's them enjoy the experience that Android can provide. They don't know - or even care - that there are apps outside of the market.

    Myself, I wouldn't want one as I'm a phone geek - my DROID makes me happy. But the Backflip is perfect for someone like my wife who just wants to text, place calls, go on Facebook once in a while and play some games on her phone.

    Good point, I suppose if your just a beginner in the android world, the phone might be a good choice. I just wonder how the phone operates with all the extra stuff

    I don't like how AT&T likes to do this exclusivity crap. Like the iPhone, and now they're doing the same thing with an Android device! I don't like their business sense and they would be my last choice of carriers because of it.

    At&t's not the only carrier with exclusives. You'd run out of carriers to choose from if you only used those without exclusives.

    So it's all moot anyway? :confused:
