BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip Updates: T-Mobile takes pre-orders while Rogers sends invites

UPDATE:

The fine gents at MobileSyrup have pointed out that Rogers has now placed a “coming soon” page on their site. Still no pricing information, but Big Red already told us their BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 plans pre-CTIA.

A quick scan of our inbox this morning shows where the first two carriers to announce the nascent BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 (does anyone else think that name is just too long?) are in their respective launch plans.

While they haven’t published pricing information yet, T-Mobile has placed a “pre-register” link along with device information on their site. Unfortunately, it appears that for non T-Mobile subscribers, this link merely sends you to the BlackBerry Pearl Flip website that first appeared during CTIA. However, for T-Mobile subscribers, there is an additional link for upgrades. Any T-Mo BBCool readers want to give it a try?

Rogers, conversely, has nothing about the BlackBerry Pearl Flip on their wireless site, but has sent out invitations for sales employees to attend promotional launch parties across Canada. The invites reflect the youthful demographic of the Pearl Flip, containing words like ‘chill’ and text-speak that would only be used by someone born after 1986. Unfortunately, the events aren’t open to press or public; Rogers employees can register at http://www.blackberrypearl8220event.com/.

We’ll keep you up to date when either carrier releases any relevant details for their BlackBerry Pearl Flip launches.
