BlackBerry Curve 8900 and BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8210 coming to AT&T soon?

We know the BlackBerry 8900 has been slated as an AT&T device forever. Heck, Giz’s unit was AT&T branded, and then there’s also the mysterious vanishing act it pulled at CES. We also outed the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8210 (oh no, RIM isn’t even close to being done with the confusing models/different features) and that looks to be the unit AT&T is going to be launching first (we believe the 8220 will come to AT&T as well later). What everyone has been wondering, however, is when will these devices will actually see the light of day on AT&T. We just got some information that corroborates with what we’ve heard, but it isn’t from one of our normal tipsters. If you’re still interested, we have been told the BlackBerry 8900 is scheduled for a February release (we also heard the SKU is now appearing in AT&T’s systems), and that the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8210 is coming in March. Verizon isn’t going to be the only one, it seems. We haven’t got word on pricing yet, but we’d imagine you’ll see the Curve 8900 for around $199 and the Flip for around $99. Possibly lower if AT&T really wants to churn and burn.

P.S. The date also seems right because it does lineup with AT&T phasing out those EDGE devices. These could very well be the last of the Mohicans. Yeah, we totally said that.

T-Mobile launching BlackBerry 8120s in more colors than you can count on October 15th

T-Mobile launching BlackBerry 8120s in more colors than you can count on October 15th

Well, not really. We’re pretty sure all y’all can count to three. Anyway, T-Mobile is set to launch three new BlackBerry 8120 colors on October 15th (playing it a little close to the Kickstart Pearl Flip, no?). These colors are “Frost”, “Black Emerald”, and “Indigo”. Some of the marketing lingo we were given said, “These new colors have all of the same great features as the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 including Wi-Fi for mobile calling, Wi-Fi Web browsing and a 2 MP camera, but in three new fun and stylish colors.” Whatever floats your boat, guys.

RIM gets official with T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, say that five times fast

RIM gets official with T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, say that five times fast

The title sort of says it all, but RIM has just gone ahead and announced the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 (Kickstart FTW!). T-Mobile will be the exclusive carrier of the device this year when it is launched in the US and it will come in black or red. We were not given pricing or an exact release date, but we’re assuming those sorts of things will all be made clearer when Mr. Jim rocks the mic at CTIA. Shout out to Freeway, Young Chris, Neef, Rellz, Bleek, Omillio, Beans, Peedi, Sparks, Oschino. Couple more shots along with press release after the jump!

Blackberry KickStart in the concrete jungle

Blackberry KickStart in the concrete jungle

Yeah, we’re not sure if Canada can be categorized as a part of the “concrete jungle” either, but semantics aside we’re looking at the first full review of the upcoming BlackBerry Kick Start 8220. The first ever flip ‘Berry has been an item of significant interest ever since we leaked the pictures back in April. Not much has changed, with the device still sporting the same clunky styling, large LCD, and Pearl-esque control layout. As far as we know, we’re still on for an early Fall release, so you won’t have to wait too long to get your grubby hands on one. For the time being, however, these shots and review will have to suffice as the next best thing.

BlackBerry Seawolf 9110 Joins the Pack, Javelin, Aurora and Thunder throw a party

BlackBerry Seawolf 9110 Joins the Pack, Javelin, Aurora and Thunder throw a party

It almost seems like we’re unearthing a new BlackBerry model every week. There were a number of doubters on the internet when we first posted news of the BlackBerry 9100 and external display. Those rants were quickly hushed when we brought you pictures of the BlackBerry Kickstart just two weeks later. The naysayers stating our pictures were of a dummy device were further pushed towards the land of mum when we posted more evidence of the flip-phone BlackBerry just days later.

Moral of the story? Believe the hype, we’re almost always right.
