BlackBerry Pearl 8130 makes it to Verizon

Pearl 8130 at Verizon

Arriving somewhat later than expected, the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 will finally come to Verizon on November 8th, the carrier says. The phone primarily features RIM's standard e-mail service and SureType keypad, but also includes a two-megapixel camera with flash, as well as built-in GPS navigation (here tied to Verizon's VZ Navigator service). Operating on 1x EVDO, owners can turn a Pearl into a modem via BroadbandAccess Connect.

For playback of music and video, storage is handled mainly through a microSDHC slot which supports card sizes up to 8GB. More interesting may be the phone's price: while it would normally cost $300 with a two-year contract, this becomes $200 after an online rebate, and $150 if a mail-in rebate is completed.

    shortsighted

    this is only a good thing if it pushes through. take a macbook and add apple's elegant multi-touch interface and there you have it: a s*** tablet computer.

    better to do it now than wait for microsoft's surface to find its way to tablet pcs.
