Cingular Previews Pearl
Cingular today launched a pre-launch page for its own edition of Research In Motion's BlackBerry Pearl. Confirming earlier reports, the Cingular-specific version will add a push-to-talk feature and should feature an interface customized to reflect the American provider's services. Features such as the 1.3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth support remain similar to the version available at T-Mobile and other carriers. Pricing for the phone is expected to begin at $580 without obligations or $180 with a two-year contract. An official launch date is still unknown.
