    Blackberry Pearl 3?

    Advertisement



    Does anyone have any news or information regarding when RIM will release a new Pearl?

    I've had an 8120 since it came out and loved it, but am looking towards upgrading by end of 2009.

    Thanks.

    Are you talking about something newer than the 8900 curve?

    Yes, and the 8900 Curve isn't a successor to the current Pearl

    Not sure which carrier you're with but I guess the pearl flip is suppose to be the newest pearl.

    I dont think the flip is supposed to replace the pearl as they did release the sandstone 8120 Pearl AFTER releasing the Pearl Flip.
    I am certain RIM has a 4.6-ed pearl down the pipeline.

    Pearl Flip was aimed at a younger audience (i'm not saying only kids use it i'm talking marketing wise) whereas the Pearl is aimed at people that want a blackberry but in a tighter form factor just like the 71xx series was.

    The pearl flip does have 4.6. As far as it being a replacement you're probably right about that. At the moment it's carrying the newest os.

    Yeah, the Pearl Flip isn't a replacement, just another line.

    Considering that the Pearl 8120 was released around Dec 2007 in the UK, would it be safe to assume that by Dec this year, there'll be a replacement? Two years is quite long between updates these days, right?

    Just guessing, but I don't think there will be a new one anytime soon - the flip seems to be their new "casual" line, and then the Tour/Bold/etc seem to be where their latest engineering efforts are. Personally, I like the Pearl though - nothing else fits as well in my front pocket

    I loved my ST devices as well, but alas have gone to and 8900 for a lack of options. I do love my 8900!
