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.
