No, it's not coming in a pink color, but the RIM BlackBerry 8800 will arrive at T-Mobile starting this Monday, April 21. The device will offer much of the same features as its counterpart with Cingular/AT&T. As a refresher: the device offers a 2.5-inch display, full QWERTY keyboard, and the tactile trackball that first appeared on the BlackBerry Pearl. Inside you'll find the usual BlackBerry Internet and Enterprise goodies, voice recognition, an expandable memory slot, a multimedia player, EDGE compatibility and quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) world phone support. There's no support for push-to-talk networks but that's not an issue since T-Mobile doesn't offer the feature anyway. You can get the 8800 for $249 with service.
