RIM's BlackBerry Pearl 8220
flip is in a word, awkward, and in a couple, fairly enormous
. Flipping this open on any type of crowded public transpo is going to start fights and cause black eyes. The keypad is completely flush and while we didn't write a post on it, we're betting it'll take some getting used to. Think of it as a small-ish version of the enormous display handsets you see in stores. But hey, it's at least an interesting alternative to standard BlackBerry fare if you were looking for one.
