Bell Mobility just launched the BlackBerry Pearl Flip last week and has already pulled the device from retail locations. Early adopters don’t worry-you will not need to return your beloved 8230-a simply firmware update should do the trick.
Existing customers should be receiving a text message on their Pearl Flip informing them that an update is available. Retail locations will be exchanging existing stock for devices with the new firmware. Neither Research in Motion nor Bell Mobility has made public the reason for the software upgrade. However a software glitch may explain why Telus is holding off launching their Pearl Flip
