Research In Motion unveiled their BlackBerry Pearl 3G headsets at the end of April, and today the device made an appearance on the FCC. The new Pearl 3G actually lacks the ‘pearl’ trackball – instead the device features an optical trackpad. The device also has 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, a 3.2 MP camera, GPS, 256MB of internal storage, and microSD expansion up to 32GB.
As you can see above, RIM will actually release two versions of the Pearl 3G, the Pearl 3g 9100, which features 20 keys, above left, and the Pearl 3G 9105, with 14 keys, above right. According to RIM, these are the smallest BlackBerrys yet.
FCC filings reveal that the devices will support GSM 850, 1900 as well as WCDMA bands II and V. Support for WCDMA bands II and V suggest that the device will be coming to AT&T in the US, although the carrier hasn’t made any announcements regarding the Pearl 3G to date.
We don’t have pricing or availability info on the Pearl 3G. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
