The true successor to the compact BlackBerry Pearl 8100 is styled like a slimmed-down Bold 9700. And while it ditches the "pearl" trackball for RIM's new optical touchpad, the QWERTY keyboard has made way for a reworked SureType setup.

CrackBerry says it's been sitting on the photos for a while, but was waiting for its tipster's go-ahead to run them. No specs yet, but we're told they're coming soon. Stay tuned. [CrackBerry]

Actually, having gone from the pearl to the newer curve, if you can give me the enhanced power of the curve into the pearl design, I'm all for it!

Also, replace the ball (which I've broken repeatedly) with optical touchpad? hell yes!
