    Cingular launches BlackBerry Pearl 8100c!

    Advertisement





    ATLANTA, GEORGIA and WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Nov. 30, 2006) - The new BlackBerry Pearl will arrive on the shelves of select Cingular Wireless stores beginning tomorrow - just in time for the holiday shopping season - with an exclusive look and new features, including Cingular-exclusive Push to Talk (PTT) capabilities and a GPS-based wireless navigation service.



    "The BlackBerry Pearl from Cingular provides a winning combination of business and entertainment-related applications that make it a great device both for work-time and leisure-time use," said Jeff Bradley, vice president, business data services, for Cingular Wireless. "The iconic yet highly functional design, popular BlackBerry service, and rich music and video features coupled with our Cingular-exclusive capabilities make this a powerful offering that will play well equally in the enterprise and consumer spaces."

    Cingular customers can receive GPS turn-by-turn voice and on-screen driving directions on the BlackBerry Pearl with TeleNav GPS Navigator(TM) (Bluetooth GPS Receiver accessory required). TeleNav GPS Navigator can be used in vehicles or while walking and offers colorful 3D moving maps. Just like an in-car navigation system, the 3D maps turn, move and stop as the vehicle does the same, while also displaying a realistic image of the streets the vehicle is approaching and streets they are passing.

    Users can also pan and zoom the map to view surrounding streets. Other features include Biz Finder, allowing users to look up a business or place of interest, and Fuel Finder, providing nearby locations with the lowest gas prices.

    The BlackBerry Pearl from Cingular is also the first wireless device in the U.S. to include TeleNav Maps, a free application providing access to non-GPS static maps and step-by-step written driving directions.

    Pricing and Availability

    The BlackBerry Pearl from Cingular is available for as low as $199.99 with a two-year commitment and after rebates, beginning tomorrow in select Cingular retail stores, on www.cingular.com and through Cingular's B2B sales organization, and in most Cingular stores nationwide by Monday, December 4. Or check out Amazon's BlackBerry 8100c Pearl Deal!

    Unlimited corporate email access via BlackBerry is as low as $44.99 a month with a voice contract, or customers who simply need personal email access and web browsing with BlackBerry(R) Internet Service can choose the BlackBerry Personal plan for as low as $29.99 per month with voice. Unlimited Cingular Push to Talk service is available for an additional monthly charge of $9.99 per device and $19.99 for Push to Talk Family. TeleNav GPS Navigator is available for additional monthly charges of $5.99 for 10 trips and $9.99 for unlimited trips.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ interesting stuff. It kinda makes me think they took a lot of fun out of it by not leaving it to users to find the Apps on their own, but I guess they're sugar coating it draw in as many non-geeks as possible.

    Cingular isnt the first to use TELENAV. I have been using it with the 7100i with Nextel for almost a year now.

    Still I am switching very soon to the pearl.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I hope the next Verizon berry will have bigger, original size keys like the 7250 instead of the Treo like keys on the 8703. I just like the classic berry form but with the new screen and bigger memory.

    Full keyboard or bust!

    I groaned when I saw the PM about this. I know we're going to get a bunch of requests in the next two weeks. Thankfully I'm on vacation all next week and the week before X-Mas.

    I've informed my team and our purchasing person.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I don't know which I want. They both sound so good, but the minute I by something it will go obsolete and a newer faster berry will be released. I am thinking 8800, but without a solid release date, and price I am stuck in limbo.
