    Verizon Officially Announces the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230




    Ok Ok...I know there's probably a larger contingent of Verizon subscribers reading this that would rather see Verizon issue the press release about the BlackBerry Tour 9630 over the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230, but today it's the 3G-enabled Flip that gets the spotlight. It's going to hit stores on June 19th. See full press release below. Anybody out there going to pick this baby up?
