It's not the RIM BlackBerry Storm or the BlackBerry Bold, but it looks like the RIM BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 might be nearing its release date. Early unboxing videos and photos of the smartphone have started appearing on the Web, including those from the Boy Genius Report and PhoneDog.com, complete with T-Mobile packaging, so we'd say you'll see this sooner rather than later.
If you'll recall, the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 was announced at
CTIA Fall 2008
and is the first BlackBerry with a clamshell design. T-Mobile will be the first U.S. carrier to offer the model, and though we can't say much right now, rest assured that a full review is coming soon. In the meantime, you can check out our First Look video of the Pearl Flip from CTIA.
