AT&T and Motorola announced that the Android-based Motorola BACKFLIP would be available beginning March 7.

The handset features MOTBLUR, a content delivery service that offers AT&T customers a new way to connect to their favorite people, content and applications.

”Motorola is proud to bring the first Android-powered device to AT&T’s 3G network,” said Mark Shockley, SVP, Motorola Mobile Devices, in a statement.

MOTOBLUR syncs contacts, posts, messages and photos from multiple sources and automatically delivers them to live widgets for immediate reply from the home screen.

BACKFLIP features a unique form-factor with an original reverse flip design, spacious keyboard and BACKTRACK touch panel, allowing the display to be hands-free while one’s fingers work behind the screen.

BACKFLIP runs on AT&T’s 3G network.
