And out of nowhere we have a leak for the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230. While many Pearl Flip users out there love their device (a few probably hate it too, listen to the podcast), let's be realistic here, it's not on RIM's top seller list. However, it does serve a purpose and fulfill the need for a flip BlackBerry device. Many users probably thought this of all devices would be the last to see a leaked version of OS 5.0 show up anytime soon, but it's here and available to download.
*OS Disclaimer - This is an unofficial release. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you're comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software. It is quite normal during operating system development for certain features to be crippled or disabled while others are tested, and these beta builds often reflect that. They are not always better. Depending on your BlackBerry comfort level, it may be best for you to wait for community feedback on a build before deciding to download and install for yourself or simply wait for the next official release. If you require support, you will find it in our CrackBerry forums via our extremely knowledgeable community base - do not contact your carrier or RIM for Beta OS technical support (their first course of action will be to advise you to downgrade to a supported OS). Follow the links below for more information and instructions. *
