T-Mobile Posts 8220 Online- Be The First To Flip Out

250x270myfavesIt 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.

Keep it tuned to BerryReview for any new information regarding RIM’s first venture into the flip-phone market!

  1. The Wi-fi/UMA calling is enabled even without ther $10 a month service, the $10 just makes it unlimited calling for all calls that start om wifi.

    The 8320, 8820, 8120 and several dumb phones can do it to. You can use any wifi router with B/G.

  2. As a long time T-Mo HotSpot@Home user with an 8320 I can tell you the $10 is worth is, because I save a more than that by having a voice-plan with few minutes. I use my free wifi minutes per month than anytime minutes, and have never gone over. I also used a very good b/g/n router at first, but the T-Mo routers (some free after rebate) are really good. Had no problems with them. The one with the 2 land lines is the best but not free.

    Also the 8320 is not dumb but an amazing phone. Only the Javelin will replace it for me.
