Columbus Day, Canadian thanks-giving and BlackBerry Pearl Flip

October 13 sees not only Columbus Day holiday celebrations and Canadian thanks-giving it also see’s the launch of the BlackBerry Pearl Flip smartphone out in the US exclusively on T-Mobile.

The BlackBerry Pearl Flip has been developed by Research in Motion (RIM) to not only appeal to the business user but to the everyday user, it’s the first Flip smartphone from RIM and given that the flip phone design is the most popular in America we can see this handset selling extremely well. The Pearl Flip sports or the things you would expect to find on a BlackBerry but also offers an advanced multimedia experience.

With the arrival of the BlackBerry Storm which should launch this month – BlackBerry’s first ever touchscreen and the Bold being launched round the world this really could be the month that Research in Motion (RIMM) share prices recover from the stock battering it has received of late.

Last week saw RIMM close with a fall of 6.35 percent or 3.75 points at 55.28.
