    T-Mobile customers gain three eye-catching new shades

    The BlackBerry Pearl is available beginning today in all five colors at T-Mobile retail stores, select authorized dealers and online at www.t-mobile.com.


    (Sept. 12, 2007) - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today introduced three new colors for the popular BlackBerry Pearl(TM) 8100 smartphone from T-Mobile USA, Inc. - blue, sunset (red) and pale gold. With these new colors, in addition to white and black, T-Mobile customers now have five distinct color choices to match their personal style.

    The innovative BlackBerry Pearl, which quickly became a top-selling smartphone, combines powerful email and multimedia features in an incredibly small and stylish package. The smartphone's easy-to-use interface and keyboard have won over both productivity-seeking business professionals and those who simply love to stick together with text messaging and personal email.

    To celebrate the newest additions to its line-up of BlackBerry devices, T-Mobile will introduce this month an accessible and affordable service option for all BlackBerry smartphones. For $9.99/month customers will be able to add an unlimited BlackBerry email only service(1), which provides access to personal email accounts such as Yahoo!, AOL and Gmail.

    "Our customers love the BlackBerry Pearl for its great design and feature-set," said Leslie Grandy, Vice President of Product Development, T-Mobile USA. "And for those customers initially drawn to the sleek look of the device, the new personal email service plan really lets them experience the BlackBerry Pearl's easy-to-use email features at a compelling price."

    Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion, said, "The BlackBerry Pearl has changed the way many people think about BlackBerry smartphones and has become one of the most popular products we've ever released. Consumers and business professionals alike have been drawn to its unique combination of powerful features and ultra-sleek design. With three stylish new colors and attractive new pricing options, the BlackBerry Pearl is a more intriguing choice than ever for T-Mobile customers."

    The Pearl also hosts multimedia features such as a camera and music player, and is myFaves(SM)-enabled, giving customers quick, one-touch access to their five favorite contacts. In addition to instant messaging, picture messaging, calling and texting, sending an email to a myFaves contact is just a click away(2).

    Key features of the BlackBerry Pearl include(3):

    - Popular built-in instant messaging clients: AOL, Yahoo! MSN, Google Talk and ICQ

    - Built-in digital camera with 3 zoom levels (up to 5X) and built-in flash

    - Media player with support for music, videos and pictures

    - High-performance HTML browser for visiting favorite web sites while on the go

    - Enhanced SureType(TM) keyboard system makes typing text and dialing numbers quick and easy

    - An intuitive user interface with an easy-to-use trackball, dedicated 'menu' and 'escape' keys, and context-sensitive menus that make navigation instinctive and fast

    - Advanced call management features such as smart dialing, conference calling, speed dialing, and call forwarding

    - First-rate phone features with Speaker Independent Voice Recognition (SIVR) for Voice Activated Dialing (VAD), dedicated 'send', 'end', and 'mute' keys, speakerphone, and Bluetooth support for hands-free use with headsets, car kits and Bluetooth peripherals

    - Quad-band GSM/GPRS and EDGE network support for international roaming

    - A large, ultra-bright 240x260 color display that brings images to life

    - An innovative light-sensing technology that automatically optimizes the screen, trackball and keyboard lighting for indoor, outdoor and dark environments

    - Stereo headset jack and dedicated volume controls

    - Expandable memory via microSD memory card slot

    - Support for polyphonic, mp3 and MIDI ring tones

    - BlackBerry Maps - an application that provides users with step-by-step driving directions and integrates with an external GPS receiver via Bluetooth.

    - BlackBerry Internet Service support - allows access to up to 10 supported personal and corporate email accounts, including most popular ISP email accounts

    - BlackBerry Enterprise Server support - integrates with IBM Lotus Domino, Microsoft Exchange and Novell GroupWise environments and features IT policy controls for managing handset features and usage

    Wonder when these are actually going to be up on the website? I checked both Tmo and BB but nothing on either.

    They've just been posted on the T-mobile website. Looks like the rumors were true about the release date and hopefully they will be true for the T-mobile Curve

    T-Mobile waited a little too long on this one. I just switched back to my SK3 and can't afford 2 lines.

    A yellow pearl would certainly stand out in a crowd, kind of like a yellow corvette.
