    Just noticed change on RIM website; they changed phone link wording from Pearl 9100 to Pearl 3G

    Good catch. Looking around, and you're right.

    Although the UK version outright calls it the Pearl 9105, for the moment. Maybe they haven't revised all the territory pages yet.

    The worldwide page announcement was at "worldwide.blackberry.com/blackberrypearl/9100" and had both the 9100 and 9105 shown, but they replaced the "/9100" with "/3g" and has the respective model numbers indicated under each version shown on that page. I notice that all links using the old "/9100" page automatically redirect to the new "/3g" page.

    Personally I don't really care for this change, as it's too iPhoneish.
    I'd prefer if they just called it the Pearl2 as that's more inline with the Storm and Storm2

    Pearl 3G sounds a lot better in marketing term imo.

    I agree, it does sound very iPhone like. The whole pearl name was because of the original track ball looked like a pearl (and something else I won't mention). At this point I just want it to come out.

    I would love a 9100 but it would appear from the UK Berry website that the 9105 is the only one coming here.

    That really sucks.....big time! I will just have to buy one sim free from an online retailer but at extra cost. B*gger. I don't want the standard phone keyboard BlackBerry, sort it out.

    It was pretty much a no-brainer that the next gen Pearl would be 3G compatible.
