    Afternoon peoples,

    Just a quick question, I was xtreeeemly excited to see the new pearl released and after seing it pop up on my rss feed at work headed straight over to the BB site to see if it was available on my carrier, to my dissapointment I only saw the 9105.....
    Any clue as to wether the 9100 will be available in the uk any time soon ??


    Thanks in advance, SNiPPY.

    Same here. I own a 9700 but love the look of the 9100 especially in the red/black combo. Was disappointed that the model may not be offered in the UK.

    Hmmm indeed. The main reason that I came to blackberry was for the qwerty and have discovered so much more cool stuff since thenn. Is it wrong that I feel slightly insulted by the fact that rim have made a t9 phone ??
    Anyway I hope that it does become available as I'd like to switch to either the 9100 or the 9700.

    It is probably wrong to feel insulted that Blackberry have released a T9 phone. However, if they try to force it on us by not releasing the 9100 version here, then that is insulting. Who wants a T9 Blackberry? Imagine trying to type out an eMail with a T9.

    I have seen the Pearl 3G on the coming soon part of Vodafone UK's website, however I am not sure if it is the 9100 or the 9105 as it doesn't say.

    I have some bad news for those pople hoping to buy it from the Carphone Warehouse. I was in a store today and they confirmed to me that they are getting the 9105 not the 9100 I had to check by producing my pearl and checking the keyboard was going to be the same on the model they would be stocking.

    Sadly the girl said that they weren't getting that one it was "the 14 key variety" that they would have in and "that is the 9100 isn't it?". After some further checking with someone at Vodafone it would appear that RIM may not be supplying the 9100 to the EU markets just the 9105. So I may have to try my luck with Expansys.com

    It's not popular with me if RIM are reading this! I am waiting to see what Expansys.com price it at, they say 21st release date.
