    Precisely!

    My first BlackBerry was the SureType equipped 7130c, and I'm a huge advocate of ST. This new BlackBerry Flip is a brilliant move on RIM's part. I predict this model will sell like wild fire. I'm very eager to get mine that's for sure!

    Cheers

    This will definitely attract more people to the blackberry brand but for me, it's an ugly phone. A blackberry flip phone? I never imagined I would ever see that. Whats next, a blackberry with an attachable keypad?

    This new 8220 will be a really awesome 1st BB for those just venturing into the smartphone world and those who prefer the flip-phone style. Another one I can't wait to go to the store and fondle when it comes out

    no GPS but rumored to have triangulation

    This is going to be an amazing device. it'll attract the normal consumer or business men/women who are use to using a device like the razr(something small,sleek, and full of power). Makes for an easy transition and isn't to overwhleming for people who need or want to make that jump to a smartphone. The new pearl has all the great features of an blckberry device so it's great.

    This isn't a phone for me yet I do like it. It reminds me of the old flip phones I had in the past. Though they weren't a powerhouse of a phone like this one. I see many people purchasing this device. The argument still is for those who like to protect there main screens. Well here ya go, flip it down and your covered. It's easy to slide in your pocket and purse. The go anywhere phone....

    At first all i was into was flip phones. I didn't want to have to put the key lock on the phone every time I wanted to put it in my pocket. I feel in love with the Blackberries then I didn't mind and adapted to the flip phone. I think this new pearl with bring all the flip phone lovers to the blackberry world.

    I agree with you 100%. This is going to be one of the most successful mass market models yet. RIM is very intent on making it as affordable as possible. Then to make it even more attractive for the carriers is the fact that it will sell more data plans for them. This is the BlackBerry we will look back on as the true game changer in the smart phone space. In a time when the economy is soft, this low priced BlackBerry will sell like crazy. Some carriers are planning to offer the Pearl Flip phone for free, just because they realize how much revenue the data plan will bring in.

    It reminds me when the first pearl came out on t-mobile awhile back. I brought it when it first released. Then after that more and more people had them. Now almost every person i see has a blackberry. Blackberries aren't just aimed at business men/women anymore there aimed at everyone. I give credit to RIM for moving forward and trying something new with the 8220.

    The entire purpose behind the original Pearl was to create a consumer BlackBerry that was small, stylish, fun, and yet be a fully functional BlackBerry. Like you pointed out, they were an immediate success, a truly smart move on RIM's part. Now going forward before the Pearl Flip even hits the sales channels, there is a lot of positive buzz from Wall St which bodes well for RIM & the future of BlackBerrys that are created for the public. The timing of this release could not be better.
