Video Review: BlackBerry Pearl 8230 Flip (Bell & TELUS)

9 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Bell and TELUS both recently released the BlackBerry Pearl 8230 Flip. This is RIM’s first entrance into the flip phone market and made it look somewhat classy. This comes in Pink and Black and certainly looks glossy. The Flip has 2 displays: Internal screen size is 2.4 inches (240 x 320 pixels), External screen is: 1.6 inches (128 x 160 pixels). On the external display it shows the date, time, message indicator, signall and battery strength.

PC Magazine
5 October 2009
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 is a BlackBerry Pearl turned into a rather bulky flip phone, and it already feels like last year's model. In a competitive smart phone landscape, this one doesn't excel.

  • Cons: Slow 3G speeds. Bulky. Hybrid keyboard's time may have passed.

Обзор BlackBerry 8230 Pearl Flip – смартфон от RIM в форм-факторе раскладушки

1 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Мобильный аппарат 8230 Pearl Flip станет отличным помощником для тех поклонников торговой марки RIM, которые предпочитают телефоны в форм-факторе раскладушки, но при этом не хотят жертвовать количеством полезных функций. Из его преимуществ следует отметить обновленный Messenger, Push Email, медиа-плеер и фотокамеру с неплохими характеристиками.
