Shim sent in the knowledgebase article detailing how the 8220 will be able to view video in landscape mode. That means you will be able to turn your Flip to the side and watch widescreen video. Smart move on RIM’s part.
The almost part is that according to RIM you have to transfer the video using Roxio Media Manager to get it to play in landscape mode… If you transfer it any other way it will not work.
Also of note is the new details that Cherrichiodo scored on PinStack of the T-Mobile Pearl 8220 Flip Product & Service Guide. The preloaded games are now:
- Trooper Typing
- Texas Hold’em
Sadly it looks like Wordmole is not included…
T-Mobile is even describing the device:
The Pearl Flip has very similar features to the Pearl 8120, the main difference is that it’s a flip design instead of a bar.
