A rumour has been floating around regarding T-Mobile’s BlackBerry 8220 due to launch this month, and it looks like the pricetag will be about on par with Rogers’ offering.
- 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
Awhile back, there were rumblings that the RIM’s first flip BlackBerry would be on the cheap, somewhere in the $50 neighbourhood in order to appeal to impoverished back-to-schoolers, but the student boat has sailed, and clearly pricing has gone back up to what you’d expect for a midrange smartphone. But hey, just take a look at existing BlackBerry Pearls out there and you’ll see that it won’t take long for the 8220′s price to dip.
