Verizon CDMA Pearl Flip

Verizon has quietly begun shipping its latest BlackBerry handset, the Pearl Flip 8230 that works on the CDMA and EVDO networks, according to a Crackberry member. The 8220 variant is currently available on the market, but configured to work exclusively on GSM networks. Other rumors suggested the 8230 would launch first from Canadian provider Telus sometime this month, at a "very reasonable" price and with the same color options as the 8220.

Exact specs and pricing have not yet been announced, although the GSM version offers Wi-Fi, EDGE data and a 2-megapixel camera. Recent CDMA BlackBerries have traded Wi-Fi for GPS functionality, however, while supporting EVDO-based data transfer.
