BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 (Verizon Wireless)

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.
  • Pros: Previews e-mails on external screen. Good 2-megapixel camera.
  • Cons: Slow 3G speeds. Bulky. Hybrid keyboard's time may have passed.

RIM BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 Review

Phone Arena
30 August 2005
  • Conclusion: We appreciate when companies break from tradition and try something different.  This is what spurs innovation and leads to advancements in the industry.  Most of these gambles don’t work out however, and the Pearl Flip falls squarely into this category.  Part of it is RIM’s fault for using cheap materials, part of it is just that a device like a BlackBerry doesn’t translate well into the flip form factor.  Either way, it doesn’t work.
  • Pros: No butt dialing, Better than advertised battery life
  • Cons: Poor feel, in part due to the materials used, SureType keyboard is still dismal, Locked GPS
