BlackBerry 8220 Flip Listed on Rogers.com Game Portal

With all of the Rogers Quarter 3 Smartphone leaks over the past two weeks, it doesn't surprise me that the guys in red decided to KickStart things online and have (accidentally) added the BlackBerry 8220 to their games portal device selection tool. It should be noted though that Rogers also sells the BlackBerry Pearl 8120, which is curiously absent from the device selection tool, so...
