PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 will likely be another winner from RIM—that is, once the company works out its many bugs. Don't be a beta tester; wait until software updates make this phone work correctly.

BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip Review

14 September 2009

  • Pros: Very trendy design; high quality voice calls; cool user interface
  • Cons: No GPS; average quality photos; predictive type has a learning curve
