RIM releases the BlackBerry Pearl, without the wheel

September always promises some excellent new phones. What a shocker :-), RIM has done away with the (almost) trademark scroll wheel at the side of their phones. Instead, they now have a directional track-ball and a beautiful product called the BlackBerry Pearl. The Pearl was released on September 8th this year and carries the standard set of features one can expect from the BlackBerry line of Business phones, Quad-band, EDGE enabled. Enhancements include a MicroSD slot (a first) and an expanded Bluetooth application profile.

The sticker price is $200 which appears to be incredibly cheap. At that rate, I can aspire to own one in the near future. The phone also ships with the BlackBerry Internet Service which allows up to 10 corporate and personal e-mail accounts.

  1. Im a huge blackberry fan! Im always out on the internet looking for all things blackberry. I just love all the information available for Blackberries. Im excited to have found your website and read all the helpful information you have to offer on blackberries. They say that googles Android software is going to knock off the Blackberry but I DONT believe them. We all need to come together and believe that the Blackberry platform will eventually rule the world. I dont think that anyone that doesnt have a blackberry knows what its like to be a blackberry owner. Mobile phones like iPhones are toys and not real communication devices. I keep a collection of blogs specific to blackberries and you have made my list. Let me offer another good tool to you and your viewers specific to Blackberries that I think you will find informative. Blackberry Spy Software
