On Monday, we reported on some rumors that Best Buy would offer the RIM BlackBerry Bold (in addition to AT&T) after the Boy Genius Report site posted some screenshots of the retailer's computer system showing an October 26 in-stock date for the smartphone.

Well, it seems BGR has uncovered more information that suggests Best Buy will also carry the RIM BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, the Palm Treo Pro, and the T-Mobile G1.

According to the story, the red BlackBerry Pearl Flip and the Palm Treo Pro will be available on October 26, though you can actually buy the Treo Pro now from Palm's Web site. The BlackBerry Pearl Flip has been confirmed for T-Mobile, but we've yet to hear an official availability date. As for the carrier's other big release, the T-Mobile G1 will also be in stock at Best Buy on the same date, but won't go on sale to the public till November 16. No word yet on pricing.
