BlackBerry Pearl 3G and BlackBerry Bold 9650 Announced
I’m glad to know that the whole world doesn’t start and end with either the iPhone or an Android Smartphone. The two latest releases from BlackBerry are a welcome change of pace from those touchscreen phones. The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is two inches wide (50 mm), weighs only 3.3ounces, and supports UMTS/HSDPA networks. It also includes a tactile keyboard, 3.2 MP camera, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, plus an advanced media player. The new BlackBerry Pearl 3G will be available in two models and several colors. The 9100 model features a 20-key condensed QWERTY keyboard and the 9105 model features a 14-key traditional phone keyboard.
The BlackBerry Bold 9650 is yet another addition to the Bold line-up of handsets from BlackBerry. It is a CDMA smartphone that supports 3G networks in the U.S. and abroad, with a touch-sensitive trackpad and built-in Wi-Fi. Other key features include a 3.2 MP camera, media player, internet browser and built-in GPS.
Expect these latest BlackBerry’s to hit carriers in early May.
