Granted, it's no Tour 9630, but a new BlackBerry released on a CDMA carrier is exciting nonetheless. The Pearl Flip 8230 has officially launched on Verizon Wireless, along with a price drop - from the originally announced $99.99 to $79.99 after a $70 mail-in rebate. Other than that, the device offers Verizon's standard silver BlackBerry color, a 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headphone jack, microUSB charging port, EV-DO Rev. 0, and the 20-key layout from the original Pearl (although we must say, the keys are larger and feel much better).
We have one in hand, so stay tuned for the first impressions review!
