WTF?! BlackBerry KickStart is BlackBerry PEARL 8220?!
OK. This just got weird. Following up on the Rogers BlackBerry KickStart pics from earlier today, our buds at BlackBerry Cool just posted the photo below which shows the new BlackBerry flip phone (on Rogers at least) is borrowing its candybar-style sibling's name and apparently will hit the market as the BlackBerry PEARL 8220. Could be this final branding decision was made when the model changed from 91xx to 82xx. Take a read through the text below for more details... I couldn't help but laugh at the reference to "Data virgin entrants" :)
This magical Rogers book DOES have some BlackBerry Bold stuff in it too. Nothing new information wise, but it's still worth taking a look at the images after the jump!
