    Bell today announced the availability of the BlackBerry(R) Pearl(TM) 8130 smartphone from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM), offering rich multimedia features together with all the renowned communications and productivity capabilities of the BlackBerry platform.

    "The BlackBerry Pearl 8130 delivers the ultimate wireless email and data experience for clients looking for both substance and style," said Adel Bazerghi, Vice President, Products for Bell Mobility. "We are confident its combination of data speed, functionality and style will resonate particularly
    with consumers and small business professionals looking for a phone that lets them work, play and connect with ease." The BlackBerry Pearl runs on Bell's high speed mobile network, the fastest and largest available across North America, which is ideal for emailing, mobile browsing and viewing attachments.

    "The BlackBerry Pearl 8130 is an exciting and highly anticipated product and we are very pleased to be introducing it to Bell customers across Canada today," said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion. "Many people will be drawn to the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 for the reason that it delivers best-in-class features and usability while still managing to
    be so small, light and fashionable."

    Bell is also introducing new rate plans for RIM BlackBerry smartphones, aimed particularly at consumers and small businesses. For $20 per month, the Email and Internet BlackBerry 20 feature offers 2 MB of data use with the data-efficient BlackBerry Internet Service, providing real-time push-based access to popular web-based email services, such as Sympatico, Yahoo! and
    Gmail, as well as messaging and web browsing.

    For another $15 per month, the BlackBerry 15 Add-on provides an additional 4 MB of data use for even more emailing, mobile browsing, and text and picture messaging. The feature also includes certain smart touch features such as Message Centre Express and Call Display. For lighter users, there is an Email BlackBerry 15 feature offering 1.5 MB of email for $15 per month.
    Available from Bell in an attractive amethyst colour, the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 includes:

    - Windows Live Messenger for BlackBerry smartphones, offered exclusively
    by Bell

    enhances the capabilities of Facebook for mobile users beyond a mobile
    browsing experience, with picture uploading, automatic message delivery
    and more

    spell check

    - Two megapixel camera with flash, zoom and video capture
    - Enhanced media player, perfect for listening to music and watching
    videos

    Costco has some better deals for BB users but we are still being fed to the dogs for our data. Too bad bell has no info about those lite plans on their website yet. Cart before the horse.

    This is what is called Monopoly, there are no other options and not enough demand to lower prices. All other providers offer same cost/rate plans...

    Best thing we have going right now for BELL Business is 1GB shared at $100 for first line + $20 per addtnl line...
