Hands-on with the BlackBerry Pearl 8220

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.
