It seems pretty basic and doesn’t appear that you’ll be missing out on the BlackBerry experience with the new flip variation. In fact, it’s pretty much the same thing. Except for the fact that you’d have to dial on a SureType pad and flip open the phone, but you can see the incoming messages on the external display. I don’t see the point of this device given the fact that the wildly popular Pearl is essentially the same thing. Whatevs.
