RIM to release the Pearl of all smartphones

Not all Blackberries are Blackberries. Some are Pearls.

Research in Motion, maker of the wildly popular Blackberry smartphone, will soon release a smartphone called Pearl, which also has a camera and music player built in. That camera is 1.3 megapixels, and the music player also plays video. Oh, yes, the smartphone functionality of the Blackberry is here as well: Email, SMS, Web browsing, IMing, BlackBerry Maps, and a QWERTY-style keypad can all be yours. Expandable memory is possible using microSD cards.

Pearl will have its big launch on September 12. The initial carrier will be T-Mobile, although other carriers are expected to carry the phone as well. T-Mobile plans to charge US$199 for the phone, provided that you sign up for a two-year contract.
