Though the phone hasn't been wildly successful on T-Mobile to date, it appears that Verizon Wireless is gearing up to launch the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 (the XX30 designation refers to a CDMA device) in the near future. Following the typical Verizon silver BlackBerry color scheme, test units have been sent out to several individuals, usually indicating an imminent release. Perhaps some love on Big Red will give the unit more success. Feature-wise, the phone offers a flip form factor, QWERTY SureType keyboard, and a 2 megapixel camera.
Look at the positives: not only do you get the first BlackBerry clamshell, but you also get a phone that prevents butt dialing! Check out the picture below.
