PCMag has a review of T-Mobile’s Motorola Pebl phone.

The Pebl’s smooth open-hinge is the phone’s main feature and perhaps selling point. Until recently, we didn’t know exactly how it would work. According to PCmag you “open it by placing your thumb on the Motorola logo and moving it slightly forward; the phone then flips up in a smooth motion?. Question is can you force the phone open if you don’t wanna wait for its spaceship like functionality?

PCMag managed, or should we say did drop the Pebl from waist high – the phone remained intact and working. Aside from its hinge feature, the phone is pretty standard – no high res camera or dazzling screen to knock your socks off. We very much agree with PCMags assertion that this is a ‘purse phone’. God knows its folds better then that Samsung/B&O disaster that came out recently.

PCMag Score: 3.5/5

We don’t see the Motorola Pebl available on T-Mobile’s website yet (should be available soon), but expect to drop a few hundred when it does arrive.
