US Telecoms giant AT&T have started offering the ‘BlackBerry Pearl 8110’ built by the guys at Research In Motion. The phone is available from Today and online for the US. The smartphone features a built in GPS receiver, with all round compatibility with the AT&T ‘Navigator’ GPS system.
The BlackBerry Pearl 8110’s include a microSD card slot for expanded memory a 2 megapixel camera with built-in flash and video recorder. One great feature of this phone is the 3.5mm audio jack allow you to use your favorite headphones to listen to music, I currently own a U600 and have an annoying usb style headphone jack which are rare to pickup as replacement.
Usual Bluetooth, as well as quad-band GSM. However, A 20-key ‘SureType’ keyboard and support for BlackBerry email allows as with most blackberry phones another great feature is instant messaging emailing and the flexibility of being able to add up to 10 work and personal email addresses including Gmail and Google Talk accounts.
In summary, this phone is for a business user and perhaps a fraction of the tech market. The RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8110 is available in store for $149.99 and a 2 year contract, ouch!
