Blackberry Announces Flip

Blackberry is launching the New BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 Smartphone which is a version of their Pearl Smartphone. They are doing this to capture some retail consumer marketshare.

This device will be no different than the current Blackberry Pearl in features. It will sport a video and music player, a suretype keyboard, a web browser.

70% of the mobile users in the US use a flip phone and RIM is looking to gain some marketshare by adding that feature to their line up.

The flip version of the Blackberry Pearl device should be available in the fall of 2008.
