If you want to sign up for a new AT&T plan right now, you can receive the new Motorola Backflip phone for just a penny. Why would you want to do that, though? Well, thankfully I was sent one of these awesome little phones to review. If you’re a social media fanatic, I think you’re going to like what Motorola has in store for you.

What makes this phone so good? It’s all about the integration – up front – of your social accounts. When I turned on the device for the first time, I was prompted to connect my various accounts. Once you’re logged in with your credentials, your account information and updates will be seamlessly pulled into the phone.

Out of the box, it really is a pretty good device compared to a lot of phones that are out there today. It’s built on the Android operating system, which will make some of you very happy. The phone has a physical backlit keyboard and supports WiFi. There are 350 minutes of talk time and 315 hours of standby time. It’s pre-loaded with assisted GPS.

You can change wallpapers and add folders. The keyboard is a bit bigger than many devices, which I know is important to some people. The touch screen isn’t extremely responsive, but you can flip it over to control it with buttons. Usint that button on the back is kind of wild, and very unique.

It’s super simple to connect all of your social accounts. To me, that’s what it’s all about: making it easy and fast to get – and keep – you connected.
