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.
