RIM announces BlackBerry Pearl 3G
RIM has announced its smallest BlackBerry to date - the BlackBerry Pearl 3G.

The new handset is a 3G BlackBerry with features including BlackBerry email, messaging and social networking capabilities.

The handset measures less than two inches wide and weighs 93g, but manages to pack in support for high-speed 3G (UMTS/HSDPA) networks, Wi-Fi and GPS along with a powerhouse processor.

It also features an optical trackpad, dedicated volume and media keys, a 3.2 MP camera with flash, and support for up to 32 GB of personal content.

'The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is unlike any other smartphone in the world and we expect a broad range of new and existing customers will be drawn to its powerful features and compact design,' said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO, Research In Motion.

'Considering the fast growing consumer interest in smartphones and the fact that more than three-quarters of the people in the global mobile phone market are still buying handsets with a traditional alphanumeric keypad, we think the new BlackBerry Pearl 3G addresses a substantial market opportunity.

'It allows consumers to upgrade their traditional mobile phone to a full-featured, easy-to-use and fashionable 3G BlackBerry smartphone that supports BlackBerry Messenger and many other apps while maintaining a handset design and layout that is familiar and comfortable.'
