CDMA-flavored BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 clears the FCC


We still think the Pearl Flip is the ugliest phone to ever rear its head from Waterloo – but it’s a butt-dial-free BlackBerry, and that’s worth something, we suppose. When the CDMA variant made its way to the FCC’s testing dungeons, they were able to look past the Pearl Flip’s unsightly hinge and remember that it’s what’s inside that counts – and what’s inside passed their tests without a hitch.

This is where I’d normally end the post with some riveting cliffhanger debating whether the CDMA Pearl Flip was going to Sprint or Verizon – but previously leaked images of the handset sporting a Verizon badge sort of takes the fun out of that last bit. Oh well.

Will Sprint also get the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230? Will their be multiple color schemes? Tune in next time for this exciting conclusion OF: uh.. the.. cell phone.. show?
