It looks like TIM in Italy has won the race! The BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 is now available for purchase via the Italian carrier's website for $269 Euros (~$372USD). It's only available in black right now (maybe they'll get the silver and red versions in the near future), but at least it is shipping with a 1GB microSD card. For more information and to purchase the 8220 from TIM, click here. So who's next.. Rogers? T-Mo??
