    Default BlackBerry Pearl 9130?

    Will there be a CDMA variant of the new BlackBerry Pearl 3G for Verizon Wireless and Sprint?

    i am pretty sure it will be. the 8100 series was RIM's 3rd best selling phone, they would be stupid not to sell it to the US carriers.

    I hope RIM releases one soon, at least by August.
    The sleek, fast and modern look of the Pearl 3G combined with Verizon's network, is a perfect combination.
    Perhaps life is just that...a dream and a fear.

    Default Blackberry Pearl 9130

    I hope they get it soon too. I'm due for an upgrade in August and if Verizon gets the 9130 Im making the switch. I currently have the 8230 which I love but it's a year old and has some scratches on it so I'm ready for a new one.

    Default Bump..

    BUMP..

    i'd been following another thread similar to this one, a lot longer and with a lot more information but i cant seem to find it so i thought i would bump this one up to maybe see if anyone has any new info or even if its still even talk at the table. I've been waiting for any sort of rumor for this device since the release of the new Pearl 3G, but it seems to me RIM just did a GSM refresh so the Pearl name would not die, i also feel it is a device marketed to other countries outside of the US whether they be overseas or just above. Im just still anxiously waiting to use my upgrade on this device, if its even in the works that goes without saying that i will not wait FOREVER. maybe if the CDMA iPhone rumors are true then i can finally say byebye to Blackberry but till then, i'll do what i did before which is sit and wait with my crappy Tour 9630 and for those of you who ask why i don't just upgrade to the Bold 9650 i dont care for the form-factor and the whole "refresh" isn't enough for me to upgrade..

    SORRY FOR THE RANT!

    Same here. My 8130 is 2 1/2 years old and I want a new toy. The bold has caught my attention but I like suretype and the small form factor. I dont want a full keyboard and a wider phone. Plus I know if was to get a bold the minute the 30 days passed the new pearl would come out. Come on CDMA Pearl, come visit the U.S.

    Keep dreaming guys... The US is still waiting for a (real) GSM carrier to release the pearl... What makes you guys think a cdma will drop before?

    Okay, this caught my attention...

    9110?

    9115?

    But, apparently that's bogus.
    All searches for "BlackBerry 9110" bring up either very old articles that actually talk about the Pearl Flip (it seems everyone at the time thought it would get the 91xx numbering, but it ended up with as the 82xx series), or some more recent articles that actually show pictures of the pre-release 9100 that were originally posted here at CrackBerry late last year,,, complete with the familiar CB watermark logo on them.

    So, I don't know where this is coming from.

    but you guys have some sort of window with an unlocked one. again like i said most likely a phone marketed outside of the US, what i dont get is if they have to versions to get a larger market than why not release to as many countries in many colors and in both gsm/cdma networks as fast as possible?

    i dont get rim anymore :/
