It's been leaked, it's been rumored, and it's been delayed, but now it's official; the 3G BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 will now be available on Verizon starting June 19th. The Pearl Flip is Wi-Fi enabled and will run on an OS 4.6.0 and is powered by a 324MHz processor. The flip also comes with an external display and a vertical QVGA internal display.
The Pearl Flip will also offer a 2 megapixel camera with flash and video recording and a SureType QWERTY keyboard. In addition to that the Flip will have a microSD/SDHC slot and will also have VZ Navigator support. On top of all of this, there are also a ton of other features.
The Pearl Flip supports the BlackBerry App World. This provides fast access to all the apps developed for BlackBerry Pearl flip 8230 in a multitude of categories like games, entertainment, social networking, and sharing things like productivity, utilities, travel, music and video. There is also a built-in GPS with preloaded BlackBerry maps with additional support for location based apps and services. The Flip also has an advanced media player for support with pictures, videos, and music for BlackBerry Media Sync. This makes it easy to sync up iTunes digital music collections from Windows Media Player. The Flip also has Stereo Bluetooth support (A2DP/AVRCP) and 3.5mm stereo headset jack.
The only downside, if you see it that way, is that the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 is going to run you $129.99 after a $70 mail-in rebate plus a two-year agreement. But this is a cool smartphone, and people are going to be happy it is finally coming to Verizon. The Verizon model will come in a silver finish.
