Qwerty oops!

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

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.
