As expected, the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 from Verizon is now available and ready to pick up for $79.99 after rebates. Frankly, I think that price point is still a bit of a gyp considering T-Mobile is selling their 3G-less counterpart for almost half the price, but hey, at the sub $100-level, you’re kind of splitting hairs. I took a look at Telus’ version not long ago, and walked away relatively happy. The form factor is a big departure for RIM, and a fine stepping stone for those who want to start tapping the functionality of BlackBerry without carrying around a big businessy thing with a full QWERTY keyboard; in fact, the external screen actually adds a surprising amount of functionality. If you’re thinking about picking one up, be sure to check out our review first.
