Are These Reviews for real?

Are these reviews for real, I mean I doubt its one of the worst phones on Phonescoop? Maybe its not perfect, but I don't think it sux? Or is their an agenda going on?

Many people in different venue's from Phonesccop seem to like it, what gives?
This is just a highly flawed phone and when people purchase a blackberry they expect to get the best quality. Right now almsot every 8220 can't use applications that involve the internet, the screen has a 3 second delay on updating if you open and clo...

what is hactic feedback?

it says the phone has hactic feedback what is that and how does it work thanks?
hactic feed back is when the phone does a slight vibrate to let you know you've pressed a button. usually hactic feed back is only on when the phone is silenced.
It's "haptic".

Haptics are covered here in our glossary:

Can at&t get some love?

I'd love to see this one under at&t. T-Mobile, minus the lack of 3G, seems to have the best phones.
t-mobile has the best phones? really?

You guys are getting the bold and you have the iphone and countless cool nokias. I would def say att has way more cool phones than the big pink T

Ah, I'm sure you'll be able to find it unlocked.

The price

This phone will be sold for 129.87 in any sams club wireless kiosk owned by radioshack. Not sure for an upgrade yet. We will have it out by the last week of this month (supposedly).

Sweet phone

My manager just got one from T-mobile and this thing is sweet. The screen is sharp, the response time is faster then on the 8120 and i love the new updated more sharp looking OS. Seeing the messages from the outside screen is pretty sweet especially when the phone doesn't pocket dial because of the flip. Overall Very Sharp.

Hmmmmmm....

Interesting T-Mobile with it's cheesy coverage is getting a phone like this. More interesting will be the price. Paranoid
"a phone like this." What does that mean? 3G coverage doesn't matter here because this phone is not 3g capable. I believe this will be a cheap phone - no more than $99 with contract.
...
T-Mobile's coverage is just fine. You can't expect a carrier to have coverage in place where there are only like 10 ppl over 1000 acres. I went through parts of rural GA and it was able to pick up a couple of bars.

As for the BB Flip, it's fine. RI...

Very Creative

It looks like RIM is trying to grab a little of the clamshell market share along with non-business users...I'm not to in to flip phones but since it's a blackberry I"d give it a run...Wish a 3g version was available...
