BlackBerry Pearl 9100 officially announced as BlackBerry Pearl 3G

BlackBerry

There's no flip version yet of the Pearl 3G, though I suspect RIM will do that at some point too. Announced at the WES conference this week, the BlackBerry Pearl 3G is doing something a little different compared to previous Pearl phones too. Yeah, there's a version with the expected SureType keyboard, but there's another version with a standard T9 numeric keypad too. I guess people want bigger buttons; me, I'd rather have a real QWERTY keyboard. Then again, I guess QWERTY fans are more inclined to nab a Curve or a BlackBerry Bold instead. The rumor of a QWERTY Pearl is still out there, so it could happen. Rounding out the specs for the Pearl 3G are triband HSDPA, 802.11n Wi-Fi support, 3.2MP camera, microSD expansion, and a 360 x 400 display. RIM will be offering in several "lustrous colors" including black and white. The expectation is that versions will be made available (in May) for both AT&T and T-Mobile with the appropriate 3G bands in to, as well as Rogers and Telus in Canada.
