BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 available in the UK via O2

Only few weeks after being released in the US by T-Mobile, BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 is now out in the UK too.

The smartphone is offered only by O2 for the moment, but there will probably be other carriers to also release it in the near future.  

RIM’s first and only clamshell, the Pearl Flip 8220 is also the only Canadian smartphone to pack two displays: a 2.6 inches internal one with 240 x 320 pixels, and a 128 x 160 pixels external one. Obviously, the latter allows you to view incoming calls, messages, battery status and so on, without opening the handset.   

Of course, in case flip phones are not your thing, you can wait for the touchscreen BlackBerry Storm, which should hit the UK soon, via Vodafone.


Anyway, here are the main specs & features of BlackBerry Pearl 8220:

  • SureType QWERTY keypad
  • Wi-Fi
  • BlackBerry Maps
  • Push email
  • HTML browser
  • Document reader & editor, from DataViz
  • Stereo Bluetooth with A2DP
  • 2 MP camera with flash and video
  • MicroSD, SDHC card support for up to 16GB
  • Talk time: up to 4 hours
  • Standby time: up to 14 days
  • 102 grams
  • 101 x 50 x 17.5 mm

BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 can be acquired from O2 UK even for free, but for that you must sign a contract agreement and get a (probably expensive) data plan.
