T-Mobile announces the WiFi-enabled BlackBerry Pearl, Verizon finally gets the Curve

With the recent announcement of the AT&T WiFi-enabled BlackBerry Pearl we all knew it was just a matter of time before T-Mobile was going to announce one with support for the HotSpot @Home service. Today, T-Mobile announced that the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 will be available on 14 April. Like the AT&T model, the 8120 features a 2 megapixel camera with video recording capability, support for the HotSpot @Home service and T-Mobile myFaves, Bluetooth with A2DP support, and enhanced SureType keyboard with word completion, easier editing of misspelled words, and built-in spell checker.

An additional US$100 credit toward the purchase of the handset is available for customers who sign up for qualifying voice and data plans at the time of purchase.
