RIM unwraps the BlackBerry Pearl 3G

Qwerty oops!

Security for virtualized datacentres

RIM today announced the BlackBerry Pearl 3G Smartphone, its smallest phone to date.

You can see what it looks like below - what else to say?

RIM BlackBerry Pearl available in five colours

Lustrous

RIM hails the Pearl 3G's elegant "candy bar" design (in other words it is not a slide phone). The phone is available in two models and five "lustrous" colours.

The 9100 has the typical Pearl scaled-down Qwerty keyboard, and the 9105 has a traditional 14- key phone keyboard.

The Pearl is indeed small - 108mm long x 50 mm wide x 13.3 mm deep (2.5" x 1.96" x 0.52") and weighs in at 93 grams (3.3 oz).

Key features include GPS, Wi-Fi support, a 3.2MP camera, support for up to 32 GB cards. Claimed talk-time is 5.5 hours.

The phone goes on sale through various unnamed carriers from early May. We must wait till then for prices.
