Unfortunately, once it's been wiped it is not recoverable.

It's a pretty secure wipe and RIM design it to completely erase the device. Even more so if you have content protection turned on:

"If you or a user turns on content protection, the BlackBerry device uses a memory-scrubbing process to overwrite the flash memory on the BlackBerry device and the on-board BlackBerry device memory. The memory-scrubbing process complies with United States government requirements for deleting sensitive user data, including US Department of Defense Directive 5220.22-M and NIST Special Publication 800-88."
