It has long been known that T-Mobile would be the first wireless carrier in the US to release the new 8220 Pearl Flip (that’s a mouthful), and according to their website, they’re getting mighty close!
You can now pre-register for your very own BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip! The pre-register link takes you to the 8220’s BlackBerry.com page and allows you to give RIM/T-Mobile your email address, first and last name, company name and your country of residence. The RIM page gives some nice animated screen candy and your name is added to a mailing list. But that’s about it…
The page gives some specifications on the newest BlackBerry, but nothing really that we have not seen before. My favorite feature is the Pearl’s ability to make calls from any T-Mobile Hotspot, including your home if you choose to purchase a T-Mobile Wireless Router. Of course this feature is a $9.99 a month luxary but if you’re making tons of calls, its probably worth it. Read more about T-Mobiles HotSpot Calling.
