    Fresh info from Rogers shows the BlackBerry 8220 is going to be called the Pearl. I guess the ol' candybar is on the way out, huh?

    ooh...very nice price tag, ay?

    i really was waiting on this one as i love the flip phones, but having been using my old pearl for the last week (sent the curve in for colorware) i am thinking me and suretype just aren't made for each other!

    thanks simon

    I wonder if it will do everything the 8120 does plus more. Would not want to take a step backwards.

    RIM should really add some "jazz" to the look of kickstart

    It really is lacking in the style compartment

    Looks like a Razr wanna-be... Welcome to 1999

    Aside from the look. I say WOOT to new line of flipberry

    definitely a new direction RIM is trying to go. I will be looking into it when it comes out, wither it is a spare or replacement phone, it looks cool

    Flip phones is the thing of the pass. They should have made it slide phone instead.

    very good point, but there will be a lot of people who like flip phones buy this, who have never owned a BB before-especially teenagers

    That's why the Moto RAZRs are still so hot?

    I don't think they're a thing of the past. I've always liked flip phones, but I love my Curve even more! If it wasn't a SureType keyboard, I might even consider it myself, but it really is pretty boring in the eye candy department.

    I don't like it. I like a full keyboard anyway. Just my personal opinion.
