    8120 model has wifi, 8130 has GPS (about 80% sure on this) ... Unless your carrier cripples the blackberry GPS like mine does!

    8120 does not have integrated GPS. The GPS option is there because it supports 3rd party GPS devices that can be tethered or connected via Bluetooth.

    ok I am still have the question
    is the 8130 different, is the gps on a 8130 a addin/plugin device

    I need a gsm phone (tmobile and international) and I like the pearl, would love to have the gps funtion, just wondering if the equipment is there just turn off or can i get a broken/damage 8130 remove the gps and add it to my 8120

    why not taking 8110 instead?
    yes it's a pearl
    yes it has gps
    and yes it's a GSM phone

    if you also need a wifi than take a 8120 and bluetooth gps instead.

    8110:GPS GSM Device
    8120:WiFi GSM Device
    8130:GPS CDMA Device

    Unfortunately, none have both GPS and WiFi... and sorry, but the 8130 is a CDMA device, so looks like you can't use it.

    Yeah they did a bad job marketing the specs. I was also thought the 8120 had GPS capabilities... Seems they think the ability to tether to GPS can be marketed as GPS.
