BlackBerry Pearl Flip launches first in Italy

BlackBerry 8220 on TIM

After lots of talk about T-Mobile and Rogers releasing the BlackBerry 8220, it turns out that TIM, across the pond in Italy, actually got the BlackBerry Pearl Flip first. Our buddy Stefano actually went to the launch event about two weeks ago, so it’s not entirely a surprise. It’ll be going for 269 € (around $396) presumably before contract. Even if you’re about to jump on the BlackBerry 8220 (and we don’t know many who would be), you probably want to shelf your international shipping and unlocking schemes – it won’t be long before T-Mobile and Rogers has this one available too.
