BlackBerry Pearl 8230 Flips to Verizon’s Network

36699_BlackBerry_Flip_FlatLeftTopOpen.jpgCome June 19th, you’ll find the Flip on Verizon Wireless. This is the clamshell BlackBerry that’s been around the block with other carriers for some time now. Verizon Wireless says it will set you back $129.99 after a $70 mail-in rebate and new 2-year deal. Key features include:

  • Two high-resolution color displays; the external LCD lets customers preview incoming messages without opening the handset
  • 2.0 megapixel camera with zoom, flash and video recording capabilities; video recording requires a microSD(TM) card, which can be purchased separately
  • Large SureType(R) QWERTY keyboard for easy typing and dialing
  • Advanced media player for music, videos and pictures
  • microSD/SDHC card slot with support for up to 16 GB of memory per card
  • BlackBerry(R) Internet Service and BlackBerry(R) Enterprise Server support
  • Voice-activated dialing and speakerphone capabilities

Has anyone used the Flip with another carrier? I’m curious how the BlackBerry experience translates to a small clamshell with SureType keyboard.
