Dick Smith Selling Motorola Flipout For $99

Motorola’s unusual Flipout phone — which sports a slide-under square QWERTY keyboard — is on sale at a run-out price of $99 at Dick Smith stores. Things to note: it’s in-store only, Vodafone-locked, and has no official upgrade path beyond version 2.1. It’s also substantially cheaper than its $299 launch price (though even that was in the lower range for Android devices when it launched). [Dick Smith via OzBargain]


  • I’ve been seriously considering getting one of these for the last couple of weeks since they came down to about 130.

    Does anybody know if they’re unlockable? Bebause I have an optus plan that doesn’t expire for another 12 months

  • you can unlock it for free. just visit vodafone website to unlock, you need the imei number of the device. Prior to buying it at $134 at dick smith, i went into a vodafone store and was told its free to unlock, just call cust service. I did call them and was unlocked the same day, no fees. However the cust serv guy told me that i can do this via the website. Overall happy with it, except it uses 3G instead of wifi but installed apn off.
