About BlackBerry Pearl 8220

The new BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 is a decent flip phone with a great design. The Pearl Flip 8220 has a classy, glossy black casing with a silver trim, and the matte black finish inside enhances this. BlackBerry have created an unusual angled design for the Pearl Flip 8220, which moves the microphone closer to your mouth for better quality sound.

One of the Pearl's main highlights is a fantastic 1.6-inch diagonal screen, which has a 65,536 colour output and 128x160-pixel resolution for brilliant colour and images. It features a really cool analogue clock beneath the battery indicator and coverage sign. When you receive emails and messages you can view the sender and the opening lines without opening the phone, which is really handy if you are in a rush. You can also access all your info while the phone is closed, just by using your volume buttons.
