Rogers Wireless Officially Launches BlackBerry Pearl 8110 At Last

image_11019_largeimagefile Rogers Wireless Officially Launches BlackBerry Pearl 8110 At LastYou’re not still kicking around with the original BlackBerry Pearl, are you? If you’re with Rogers Wireless, your time to upgrade has finally arrived because the Pearl 8110 is now available for your buying pleasure. In terms of form factor, not much has changed from the first Pearl, but the innards have received all sorts of upgrades that make this handset a little more worth your hard-earned dollar.

Already available south of the border, the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 gets equipped with a 2 megapixel camera with 5x digital zoom and flash, a microSDHC memory expansion slot with a 1GB card included in the package, integrated GPS with support for TeleNav GPS Navigator and BlackBerry Maps, digital music downloads from the Rogers Music Store, and that crazy trackball for fumbling your way through the menus.

The asking price is obviously a little heftier than its non-so-powerful counterpart. Be prepared to cough up $250 with a three-year contract if you want the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 from Rogers Wireless.
