The Motorola Backflip was named the top upcoming cell phone at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show and I can see why, it was incredibly fast.

The modified Android system was set up for social media especially and got tweets, Facebook updates and the like to the screen nearly instantly.

Launching with Android 1.5, the Backflip will be upgradable to Android 2.1. It will also feature a 5 megapixel camera, 3.1 inch HVGA — which was very responsive — and a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor. The phone also comes with Motoblur functionality; which backs up all the contact information including social media data and pictures.

CNET said that the Backflip had one especially novel feature:

Another unique feature of the Backflip is the trackpad, which Moto calls Backtrack, located on the back of the display (when the phone is open). It works just like a traditional trackpad, allowing you to navigate through menus, flip through photos, scroll through the home screen panes, and more.
