Motorola flipout - forum? And question

    I got myself a motorola flipout a week ago. I like it! Well, it is my first android phone, so maybe I haven't been spoiled yet. ;)
    My previous phone was a windows mobile HTC s620/dash, and before that a motorola A1200.

    Anyway, is it possible to open a forum for the motorola flipout? Who do I ask?

    I also have a few maybe more general questions...

    It seems that any app that uses the accelerometer on my flipout gets the reading wrong - forward is left, back is right, left is forward etc. (or some such)
    This includes all the different ball in a labyrinth type games I tried, "drop", and Layar & Wikitude (the last two confuse up-down with left-right, so things scroll top to bottom instead of left to right...)

    My question is: could this be a problem with the implementation of the accelerometer on the flipout? Or did all these software developers get something wrong (maybe because of the screen layout?), or finally, could this be a problem specific to my phone? :thinking:

    For now, I'm having a hard time having the battery last a full day - but I'm playing with it all day long :p and I'm having problems with google mail push, but I'll look for another thread for that.

    Im looking to get a motorola flipout, but I was just wondering if you can go on movie streaming sites with this phone?

    and if so, how's the quality? is it laggy or anything?

    any info would be a big help!

    I just tried it, using the provided youtube app, on 3G. I didn't notice any lag at all. But the screen is low res (320x240), so the processor has less to do....

    If you have a specific video/site I should check, just ask...

    mb511 was rooted and update 2.1.
    Removed the android market by mistake so I've done hard reset thinking it will get it back and this method did not.

    After contacting the support they've informed I need to send it to factory in order they do a software flash.

    Is their anyway I can do that?thanks in advanced.
