Looks like the rumor of a dirt cheap Rogers BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip from a few months ago was true after all. Despite no official announcement of pricing or release, Canada’s Future Shop has listed the device as for sale “in-store only” for $49 on a 3-year contract. While stores across Canada are reporting that no 8220s are in stock, it is expected that the official go head from Rogers will come soon, possibly as early as Tuesday. At the same time, the recently rumored pink Pearl Flip was also confirmed making the device available in both pink and black. The only question left is whether or not some people at Future Shop are going to lose their job for the continuous stream of pre-announcement sales and leaks they’ve been having over the past year.
