If you want to read a good review of the BlackBerry Pearl Flip head over to All Things Digital.
I’ve said many times that I was a fan of the Pearl Flip many times her on RIMarkable, however, I have to admit, that was before I was able to hold one.
I still think that it is a bit large but it is finally starting to grow on me. I guess that I am going to have to go ahead and review it myself.
I was going to check one out today. Let me know what you think. Curious to hear. Heard the browser was having some serious rendering issues.

Well, I tested one out, and not a fan. While the phone looks large open, it wasn’t that big of a deal. The keys were larger, however, do not have the feel that non flip pearl has. Trade off in that department. The screen was nice, and the apps laid out well with the new OS. Also, documents to go standard comes with the device. Anything more, you have to pay.
The big disappointment was the browser. Terrible rendering. The edge network didn’t help at all, even in a TMO store. And if that wasn’t bad enough, while I let the browser pull the site down that I wanted, I attempted to go back to the main screen and go to s contact. Well, the system was slowed because of the browser struggling to pull down a page, and there was a heavy delay in using the trackball and getting it to the icon I wanted. While I would suspect wifi to provide a quicker load of the web page, it’s not that often I drive with a router attached to the good of my car.
I’ve been spoiled by the speed of VZW’s network, and will just have to wait for that personal phone purchase I plan on making. The storm will be my business replacement, but looking for something new and fun for personal use. I may just go with a regular phone…wow, there, I said it.
