Last Friday we reported on the sudden news that the Motorola FlipOut would be debuting over the weekend, but equally as sudden signs are pointing to the last minute demise of the handset. Word is corporate -owned retail stores were given the orders to simply destroy the relative literature that had been shipped out as the release date came and went with no FlipOut on the shelves. If that seems surprising, don’t forget it isn’t unprecedented.
Previously AT&T gave a still-born launch to the Sony Ericsson K850. After ordering up a custom version of the device from SE and getting promotional materials into stores, the company decided to nix devices at the last possible moment. Oh well, I’m sure the AT&T-gimped FlipOut is in a happier place now.
