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.
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
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.
Excerpt: The BlackBerry Pearl smartphone isn't new, but the flip, or clamshell, design of the BlackBerry Pearl 8220 Flip certainly represents a big change for the leading business smartphone maker, RIM.
Conclusion: The BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 mobile phone is a fantastic looking mobile with superb features and technologies packed solid into it. The user can really carry out their work related uses on this handset as well as the day to day personal uses as it is all wrapped into the one handset.
