T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 gets priced

Updated 4 years ago

Contrary to the rumored ultra-cheap pricing that many were expecting, a reported leak may reveal the upcoming BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 is priced a bit higher. A tmonews forum member claiming to be a T-Mobile employee has posted what he claims to be the price points for T-Mobile’s upcoming 8220 release, and they look like this:

  • New Activation 2 Year Contract $149.99 (after $50 MIR)
  • New Activation 1 Year Contract $199.99 (after $50 MIR)
  • Full Upgrade 2 Year Contract $167.99 (after $50 MIR)
  • Full Upgrade 1 Year Contract $217.99 (after $50 MIR)
  • Partial Upgrade: TBD
  • Retail Price: $349.99

So it’s not $50 but $150 after mail-in rebate is hardly a ridiculous price tag for RIM’s first BlackBerry to have a clam shell form factor. While T-Mobile will be the only carrier to offer the Pearl Flip in the US, we also know that Rogers will be carrying it north of the border. Surprisingly, T-Mobile’s pricing (if accurate) is well above the $49 – $99 CAD that Rogers will be asking with a 3 year contract. Regardless, we know T-Mobile will be making the 8220 available this fall so we should know how accurate this pricing is soon enough.
