BlackBerry Pearl 8100
Having bent the enterprise to its will, RIM started to target the consumer segment with the launch of the Pearl in 2006.
One of the most obvious changes brought in for the Pearl was the addition of the trackball, replacing the thumbwheel previously used for navigation.
The Pearl 8100 was also the first BlackBerry to sport a camera, featuring a 1.3-megapixel snapper.
