Mobile phone technology is advancing rapidly, and so is its make and design. Such fierce is the competition of mobile designing, that leading manufacturers have collaborated with well known fashion houses, to offer their doze of 'stunners'. And leading the parade of stylish mobiles, is the Flip Mobile Phones. These mobile phones comes through as highly classy and sophisticated models, that also score high in terms of creativity, and utility.

In the initial times of its launch, a flip phone only came as a bar shaped device. But in the more recent times, the concept has evolved and most flip mobile phones have a clamshell device. Flip Mobile Phones come in two parts: the main phone contains the keypad, while the top lid opens to reveal a screen. Flip Phones offer many advantages. These include - Slim line due to fold mechanism, protective covering to the main part of the phone & screen, and advantage of bigger screen. The outer screen can be as large as the Flip Mobile Phone itself.

The concept of Flip Mobile Phones is thought to be inspired by the Star Trek original series communicator. The first such model to sport the clamshell design was the Motorola StarTAC, created in 1996. And ever since, the charm of Flip Mobile Phones is often associated with Motorola (credit to its RAZR fame). Of late, Sony Ericsson have filed a patent that shows a new form design for Flip mobile phones.
