Thought the launch of the Kin ONEm and TWOm was strange? Here's another oddity with a Microsoft tie-in: Canadian startup Mobilicity has just announced the \"Mobiflip,\" a phone that the carrier's own press release calls out as being \"similar to the Sidekick LX.\" It's unclear whether what's left of Da
