Canadian SureType fans won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on the BlackBerry 8220 Pearl Flip. Word came down today from the very top of Rogers that the device is going to start shipping to all retail channels on Wednesday, October 29th. Customers who sign up for a 3-year death sentence contract in combination with a voice and data combo of $35 and up will be able to walk away with the Pearl Flip for $49.99, which isn’t a bad price at all in Canada. In terms of release date, unfortunately there isn’t one set in stone. There is however, a lot of speculation that Rogers will do something out of character and release the phone on Friday, a day that happens to be Halloween. If that doesn’t happen it’s pretty safe to assume that by Tuesday, November 4th the Pearl Flip will be officially available in it’s native land.
