    Was browsing on eBay Australia, then come across this listing. The backcover looks pretty much like the rumored pearl 2.

    not a Pearl 2. Just a different back cover. The specs are clearly a 8100, and if it were a Pearl 2, the seller would be advertising it.

    Question is, would that backcover compatible with pearl 1? i dont think so, since the camera cutout is different.
    The rumored pearl 2 pic was just out few days ago on slide, yet this guy have it in real, at least picture of the backcover.
    I know the spec is a pearl 1, just wondering how can he gets the backcase in real.

    take a closer look buddies. The front is completely different. notice the menu and back buttons... as well as the blackberry logo next to the blackberry on the top of the screen. it is def. a pearl 2.

    The menu and back buttons are the same as my Pearl 1 , maybe its a euro\ Asia design difference.

    The back plate is strange though !

    I reckon its a pearl 1

    Krad's right, menu and back button are slightly larger. They keypad 2,3,4 are also appears more curvy to the bottom.

    Have sent message to seller but no reply yet. Not saying i want to get one, but its cheap considering if its a real pearl 2, not some random pic he puts.

    Just to compare:




    And our lovely pearl 1

    I tend to agree with Krad. There also appears to be a voice mail icon on the #1 key that the original Pearl does not have.

    See this post on Crackberry for a close up shot of the front.

    Although its also possible that maybe there is just a different version on the original Pearl in Australia.
