AT&T's new WiFi-enabled BlackBerry Pearl also supports video recording

AT&T and RIM announced the availability of the new BlackBerry Pearl 8120 device that is available now for business customers. This new version of the Pearl launches with a WiFi radio and a 2 megapixel camera that has video recording capabilities.

I placed my business card into a bowl at CES and was just recently contacted and told that I had won a BlackBerry Pearl. I loved the BlackBerry Curve I evaluated and was excited to try the Pearl. I have since switched my T-Mobile account to a BlackBerry data account and am enjoying the experience on the Pearl. AT&T and RIM made an announcement late last week revealing the WiFi-enabled BlackBerry Pearl 8120. This new WiFi-enabled Pearl currently comes in sapphire blue and still retains that Pearl design.

Specifications include a 2 megapixel camera with video recorder (compared to the 1.3 megapixel still-only camera I have on my Pearl), 3.5-mm headset jack, microSD slot, Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11 b/g WiFi, and 240x260 pixel display. The new Pearl is available for business customers now for as low as US$199.99 with a two-year contract. The Pearl 8120 also supports AT&T's Mobile Music subscription and Push to Talk functionality. It is an EDGE capable device and is not 3G compatible.

Hopefully, T-Mobile USA customers will see a version of this that works with the T-Mobile HotSpot @Home Mobile service in the near future.
