Silver Flip Pearl 8220

So far we have officially seen RIM's newly-announced BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 in two color schemes: black and red. These images (more after the jump), show off a third color... silver. I guess you could call it gray instead of silver, but either way with the black flip I think the color combo looks good!

I stumbled upon the images over at, coming from a RIM Press Release posted in Spanish. It's late at night as I post this (heading to bed!!), so for those of you who can read the release feel free to translate any important details into the comments! I'm pretty sure this is the first I have seen of the third color scheme - at this point I'm not sure if we can expect to see this color be available in North America on T-Mobile and Rogers at launch or if it will initially be reserved for other carriers. Stay tuned for more...

Third BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 Color: Silver!!


That looks great in the black/silver if they do it in Pink I can finally convince my girlfriend to get one ;)

it doesn't look too bad, but the Black version is the best in my opinion!

edit: noticed that the picture shows GPRS! that's so bad, it's not even EDGE and edge is pretty weak too haha.

Man this is a must get combo!

I was getting anxious to see new color schemes as it was announced way back when the phone first surfaced.

I was contemplating getting the black model as it looks a bit more sleek than the red one... But this is definitely cool looking, I certainly hope Rogers gets this on the launch date! Honestly, the more color options the better :)

I had a pearl before getting the curve. I was upgraded to the curve because I had so many problems with the pearl. I must have had 6 before upgrading to the curve. I love my "crack"berry. So I kept getting another one and antoher one. I have not had any problems with the curve.

brownsugar, would you mind elaborating? Since the flip is basically a Pearl, would like to know potential pitfalls..
