RIM announces new BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220……stay away

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

BlackBerry has announced a new phone again. It’s a new flip version of the BlackBerry Pearl. My advice….stay away!

I have had the “pleasure” if you can call it that of supporting the old BlackBerry pearl phones for my clients and I have to say I hate them. If for no reason other than they seem to break  fairly easily and they are extremely hard to use when typing. This new phone looks like it has a similar keyboard to the Pearl.

I would rather people buy the newer BlackBerries with the full size keyboards. Of course if you like flip phones and don’t mind the user interface of the Pearl, then this could be the phone for you.
