Seemingly as though it wasn't just totally pulling the claim of June 19 availability out of thin air back at the announcement
, Verizon has gone ahead and started offering the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 online today. It's no Tour
by any stretch, but the consumer-friendly phone comes in at a palatable $79.99 after discounts on contract and offers a 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headphone jack, EV-DO Rev. 0, and the 20-key layout made famous by the original Pearl -- if you're into that sort of thing. And hey, it looks pretty good in silver, doesn't it?
