BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220: A Clamshell BlackBerry for the First Time
5 July 2011
Summary: BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 is the first phone from RIM that comes in a clamshell form factor. Besides having good looks it promises to carry the same legacy of great features with excellent performance for which BlackBerry phones are loved all over the world. Let's find our more about this device.
Conclusion: The whole point of the Flip is this: You get all the features of a Blackberry minus the full keyboard. As such, it proves an excellent phone for those either willing to learn how to use the two-character key typing or who probably won’t be writing any novellas over e-mail anyway.
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.
Excerpt: The lustrous and super stylish Pearl series is back with another installment after the Blackberry Pearl 8120 . The Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 is another one of RIM’s deviations from the typical, an indication of the changing times at the company, if you will.
Summary: The Pearl Flip is RIM’s first non-candybar BlackBerry handset and the results are fair but not outstanding. Some consumers will appreciate the Flip design, but the lack of 3G connectivity is a real let-down.
Pros: Stylish front, external display, all the e-mail features and functions of a regular BlackBerry, Wi-Fi, excellent audio quality, SureType keyboard
Cons: No 3G connectivity, no GPS, awkward hinge design, bottom casing feels cheap, slightly sluggish when opening applications
Test: RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8220 Flip (Business-Handy)
8 October 2009
Conclusion: Das Flip konnte im Test nicht überzeugen. Wer ein reinrassiges Business-Handy sucht, findet im Flip keinen guten Partner. Sowohl Verarbeitung, Ausstattung und auch Bedienung lassen teilweise deutlich zu wünschen übrig. Zum Telefonieren taugt das Handy dank guter Sprachqualität allerdings sehr gut.
Pros: Gute Gesprächsqualität, WLAN, Leicht und kompakt
Cons: Kein UMTS / HSDPA, Langsamer Sync, Mäßige Verarbeitung
