Research In Motion (RIM) today announced the long-rumored BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, the company's first device in a clamshell form factor. The 8220 is a quad-band GSM/EDGE phone with dual color displays. The outer display can show previews of incoming emails and text messages, while the inside is dominated by a QVGA main display. Like the Pearl 8120, the 8220 sports a SureType text keypad, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi (including UMA,) 2 megapixel camera with flash, and memory card slot supporting cards up to 16 GB. The Pearl Flip 8220 will be exclusive to T-Mobile in the US, and will go on sale this fall.

As soon as I win this in the Blackberry contest....

It's going on Ebay and I'm using the money from it to buy the HTC Dream.
same here but it will prob take 2-3 months for us to get it from the contest just like all the other contest prizes

That make me hate Verizon... You know it will be probably 2 years before they bring this bad boy out. Mad Mad Mad
its things like this that make me say eeww
Is this concept even going to work. T-Mobile had the Samsung T719 come out 2 years ago, it also had Blackberry branding and used the blackberry email(during the big anti-trust thingy that was going on). We were really excited about it and thought it...
Are you a Verizon customer? What is your current phone?
