BlackBerry Pearl 8120 and 8220 Flip comparison video

Comments

Zara, who writes a blog mobilechic, has done a video review of the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 and 8220 Flip. The video is a quick comparison of the 2 devices and she highlights some first impressions.

Things you’ll notice immediately with the Pearl Flip:

  • Thicker, shorter and heavier.
  • Recessed trackball.
  • Lower build quality (battery cover jiggles).
  • Keys are bigger and easier to press.
  • Larger screen resolution.
  • External screen that shows date, time and messages. Screen also displays media playing.
  • Double the amount of internal memory (128mb).
  • I would agree with Zara’s conclusion and I too would rather the Pearl Flip. What say you readers?
