The Blackberry Pearl's full stats have been disclosed on Pinstack's forums. Some highlights from the consumer smartphone:
•1.3 MPixel camera, with online storage of photos
•Officially can be used as a laptop modem
•Quad Band GSM, with EDGE data (even if it's the slow T-Mobile kind)
•A 240 by 260 resolution screen
•Thinner than a RAZR (But not smaller)
•MicroSD expansion, and MP3 ringtone support
So, it's pretty, but its still a blackberry. Boring to me, exciting to office drones. Maybe I'll think differently once I see the hardware for myself. Thanks Pinstack. Full specs after the jump.
