Flip out: First ever BlackBerry flip smartphone heading to T-Mobile

Published: September 10, 2008

Along with the unveiling of the new BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 smartphone, Research in Motion (RIM) also announced that in the United State it will be available exclusively with T-Mobile this fall.  Being a supporter of flip phone devices, I can't wait to see if this new BlackBerry can keep the usability of their famous smartphones in a great compact form factor.  Key features of the new 8220 include the ability to complete voice calls and text messages without opening the device, 240 x 320 internal LCD display, and SureType QWERTY keyboard.  

For the full press release visit the BlackBerry newsroom.  Be sure to also find out what the Pearl Flip with T-Mobile will be able to do.
