    Cingular's Pearl

    Advertisement



    Ok, Im not sure if this is real, however, I was in line at Starbucks this morning at Valley Fair mall in San Jose, California. The line was long and behind me was an employee that worked at Cingular. He had a box for Cingualr's PDA the BlackJack by Samsung.

    I asked him if he felt that the BlackJack would delay the release of the Pearl and he let me know a few things.

    1) The BlackJack is a POS.
    2) Pearl would be out before December 1.
    3) It looks different then TMo's in footprint, most noticebly the keyboard has no off-set of the keys.
    4) He did hold, play and screw around with it.

    So thats what I heard, not sure if its real, so we shall see.

    Happy Holidays,
    Jeff

    What do you mean by "offset" of the keys?

    I feeel the same way as you do, what does "offset of the keys" really mean? I thought that the middle rows of keys were going to be white and the black of the phone was going to change to a gray color. I guess we will have to wait and see...

    Take this for what it's worth. I was in a Cingular store this afternoon in San Mateo, CA and asked a sales associate if and when the Pearl was going to be released. He told me that they were getting it but not until the beginning to the first quarter '07. He said that T-mobile has an exclusive contract to sell the Pearl until then.

    Just my .02 cents

    What he ddescribed was that the horizontal rows of keys were straight across and opposed to offset from each row.

    If that makes sense.

    The Pearl is now available for Pre-Order on the Cingular Premier Business page. Still does not show what the ship date will be though. I placed my pre order this morning so I hope I will get one shipped to me as soon as it is available maybe this week.
