    Forbes: The Pearl 2... "A Kinder, Gentler Blackberry"

    Advertisement



    "For many, a cell phone is as much a fashion accessory as a functional device. That's why clunky Blackberrys were never a hit with consumers shopping for personal phones.

    Blackberry's maker, however, isn't ignoring all those potential customers. Research In Motion hopes to woo the fashion-conscious with its soon-to-be released Pearl 2.

    RBC analyst Mike Abramsky thinks the company is on the right track. He said Friday the Pearl 2 will win over young buyers as well as soccer moms and dads. "The Pearl 2 design appears sleeker, lighter and esthetically improved. It's a fashion statement, fitting in a purse or pocket," said Abramsky.

    Abramsky upgraded his price target on the company's stock to $110.00 from $83.00 on Friday. Shares of Research In Motion (nasdaq: RIMM - news - people ) rose $1.16, or 1.4%, to $86.90, in late trading."

    i love the way they throw these bones out there and don't bother w/ a target release date. it's one thing to tempt the temptable (a la apple) but you can't do it effectively w/o a date or you lose the big Mo! Advantage iPhone.

    Is it me, or has Forbes never heard of Pearl 1? It's not like most of those features are brand new...

    Still, good that RIM is getting more positive play in the media.

    don't think many titans of industry use the pearl, hence, "Oh gee, a pretty (new) cute little BB"
