Some phone users are put off by unnecessary appendages on their handsets, but others can't resist opening a flip phone with the quick flick of the wrist. However, there are still more than enough handsets lists for us to compare and contrast the best flip mobile phones and latest flip phones.
Sony Ericsson P800 We are not doing cartwheels over its pastel blue theme, but we can't help noticing the Sony Ericsson P800's splendid features. With a 4,096-colour screen, bluetooth, GPRS, and a built-in digital camera, it's Ericsson technology at its best. You can also pick one up for about £40 from retailers. LG enV3 The LG enV3 has a small colour display and numeric keypad on the outside, but it can be opened up like a book to reveal a landscape-oriented display and a full QWERTY keyboard. The full HTML web browser provides great access to the internet and the 3.0 mega pixel camera offers several special shooting modes. The LG enV3 is not a smartphone and with this in mind, one can be picked up for around £70. Motorola RAZR2 V9x The Motorola Flip dominated the cell phone market for a number of years and for good reason. It was highly attractive, slick-looking, and came with many cutting-edge features. The phone is certainly dated by today's standards, but the RAZR2 V9x is still very suitable for people who want to express their personal style without breaking the bank. The price for this phone is around £50 from Amazon.
Nokia 6600 fold
Perhaps the simplest of handsets in this list of the top 5 flip phones, the Nokia 6600 fold offers classic lines and a simple interface. Released in August 2008, this phone comes with a pair of OLED (organic LED) displays, two mega pixel camera, Opera Mini web browser, and Bluetooth 2.0. These can put you back around £120.
RIM BlackBerry Pearl flip
The RIM BlackBerry Pearl flip has expanded its line-up to include different types of smartphones as well. For instance, the touchscreen-craze was approached with the release of the BlackBerry Storm series. In like manner, RIM released its first flip phone in the form of the BlackBerry Pearl flip phone.
BlackBerry Pearl flip has Motion's Sure Type keyboard. This maps two letters to each key, finding a middle between T9 numeric keypads and full QWERTY keyboards. It can put you back around £100.
Final word Overall, for the money, the best mobile flip has to be the Blackberry Pearl flip phone as this has great features with a modest price. Furthermore, with the Blackberry Pearl mobile phone, you have the most up-to-date Blackberry features.
