  • Summary: BlackBerry still hasn’t decided who its audience is. The Flip is too hip for executives, too chunky for street kids – but maybe just right for you, sir. Yes, you with the multiple email accounts, extensive media collection and trackball fixation.

Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 Review

Digitaltrends
17 November 2008
  • Excerpt: As the first Blackberry clamshell phone ever, the Pearl Flip is designed for a specific cross-section of mobile users: Those who don’t really need a full QWERTY keyboard. Note that the original Pearl, still a viable alternative, started the trend of predictive type, where the truncated keypad automatically fills in words and letters as you enter them. The good news, of course, being that The Flip is just as useful.
  • Pros: Very trendy design; high quality voice calls; cool user interface
  • Cons: No GPS; average quality photos; predictive type has a learning curve

BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: We weren’t sure what it was going to be like using a clamshell BlackBerry. But over a few days, we grew to like the design. Flip phone fans and Pearl addicts will appreciate the improved, spacious keyboard, higher-resolution display, fresh operating system, and sleek style. If you can live with EDGE data when you’re outside of hotsport range, and you don’t have a need for GPS on your phone, it’s a good choice.
  • Pros: Sharp clamshell design, Beautiful display, Comfortable keyboard, Good call quality, ,
  • Cons: Inconsistent Wi-Fi performance', Lacks 3G and GPS, ,
