New Blackberry is finally out


The much-anticipated new BlackBerry Pearl’ 8100 is out, thinner than a Motorola Razr, finally added a 1.3 megapixel camera, SureType (half-qwerty + software) keyboard, 2.0 Bluetooth, media player too.

List on the T-Mobile site as $199 with rebates, damned reasonable really.

Off to call the retention rep at T-mobile to see if they’ll cut me a deal!

Update: Nope, lame. 238 shipped, or the same basic 200 dollar deal. Hmm. I suspect this will be free soon on Amazon, with new activation. Wonder if I should drop and re-enroll?
