Rogers BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 to come in pink before Christmas?


rogers-blackberry-pearl-flip-roseFile this one under “to be determined”. However, MobileInCanada has published a photo today showing what looks to be a legit Rogers BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 promotion offering the device in pink for $50 on a three-year contract. Now we know from CTIA that the Pearl Flip will eventually be coming to T-Mobile in a bright red, but this looks to be different. As well, right around CTIA Rogers accidentally published a Pearl Flip promotion that showed the device to be $150 on a three-year contract.

Our thoughts? If the image is legit, expect Rogers to do the same thing they did to the BlackBerry Bold, and drop the price of the Pearl Flip 8220 around six weeks after launch — just in time for Christmas and in a new color. Stay tuned and buyer beware during the Rogers Pearl Flip launch.

BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 lands first on TIM

First the BlackBerry Storm video, now this: those Italians get to have all the fun! That’s right, it appears that Italian carrier TIM is the first to release the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, RIM’s first flip phone. Priced at 269€ (approx. $370 USD), the Pearl Flip should appeal to those fashionable Italians with its clean lines and black coloring. You can see the full specs (in Italian!) after the jump.

Thanks for the tip, Joe!

T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 pricing and launch update


BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220

Hot on the heels of the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 Best Buy release date, comes rumors from a variety of forums as to T-Mobile’s pricing and launch date for the FlipBerry.

T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8220 Pricing

* New Activation 2 Year Contract $149.99 (after $50 MIR)
* New Activation 1 Year Contract $199.99 (after $50 MIR)
* Full Upgrade 2 Year Contract $167.99 (after $50 MIR)
* Full Upgrade 1 Year Contract $217.99 (after $50 MIR)
* Partial Upgrade: TBD
* Retail Price: $349.99

The numbers aren’t much of a shock, considering the accidentally released Rogers promotion showed the same price, only with a three-year contract. In addition, there’s word on the Pinstack Forums that we may see the T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 by October 15th, 11 days before it appears in Best Buy stores.

Red BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 at Best Buy October 26th


It looks like the BlackBerry Bold isn’t the only RIM device coming to Best Buy October 26th. Another screen grab from The Boy Genius shows that a red BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 should be making an appearance as well. While there’s no information on pricing, we do have one other tidbit for you: the T-Mobile codeword for the 8220 is the “BlackBerry HummingBird”. Isn’t that a much nicer name than Pearl Flip? Oh well.

Rogers BlackBerry Pearl 8220 Party shots


rogers BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 party

Remember the Rogers BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 party invitations we told you about? Well, it turns out one of those parties was last week, and old friend of the site RogersDude69 was there to snap some pictures.

Apparently the event was fairly low key, with a lot of Rogers BlackBerry experts going around quizzing attendees about their BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 knowledge for a chance to win the device. However, judging from the pics, Rogers really likes ‘urban’ dancers and people jumping around on bicycles, which is kinda cool.

BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 Updates: Silver colour, O2 and T-Mobile Germany launches


BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220

For flip phone lovers who can’t get enough of the newly announced BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, we have a variety of updates for you. First, our Spanish friends over at MiBlackBerry.com have found a new Pearl Flip colour in a RIM press release: Silver. No word yet on if we’ll be able to see this colour in North America, but it sure does look pretty. Hopefully those Rogers Pearl Flip parties will shed some light on the situation.

Second, BlackBerryNews.com is reporting that “internal documents” indicate the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 will also soon be released on O2 and T-Mobile Germany. Hopefully these releases will come with some new colors as well.
