T-Mobile now offers the BlackBerry Pearl Flip
Starting today, T-Mobile USA offers the first BlackBerry phone in a folding form-factor, the Pearl Flip 8220. It can be purchased online, in retail stores and select authorized dealers for $150 with a two-year contract. It is now available in black but if you are fan of the red, such variant is expected to be offered “in the coming weeks”.  

The Pearl Flip is a quad-band GSM (no 3G) with Wi-Fi, which can be used both for T-Mobile’s Unlimited HotSpot Calling service and for browsing the web. It is touted not only for the typical BlackBerry features (read: e-mail, QWERTY) but also for the multimedia-friendly character of the Pearl family. It has 2.4” QVGA main display, 2MP camera, 3.5mm stereo jack, stereo Bluetooth and microSD slot.
