As if our breaking-news information on the upcoming T-Mobile release of the BlackBerry 8320 wasn’t enough, we’ve got some details for another sleeve-hiding surprise about the BlackBerry Pearl on T-Mobile. No, it’s not being retired but rather it’s being re-decorated. Like the aptly named internal document from T-Mobile? Yeah, let’s hope that was never intended for public viewing (Woops!). That being said, in a rather underwhelming show of pseudo-strength, on September 4, T-Mobile is set to re-release the ever-popular first-generation BlackBerry Pearl in three exciting new colors: Ruby Red, Boiled in Blue, and Glitterin’ Gold (Disclaimer: Jibi had a little fun with the names – our apologies). With regards to the ‘under the hood’ hardware, nothing has changed on the device. Pricing is still unknown, but we do not expect these to have much – if any – increase in price over the Blazing Black and Whiplash White models currently available.

…and you thought we were going to reveal a sinister release plan for the BlackBerry Pearl 2.

Many thanks to tmophonehome!
