BlackBerry Pearl 9100 first RIM handset to pack 802.11n?
This article contains unofficial information.
Maybe the Pearl Flip really never managed to find a good foothold when it was first released? The thought of a flip type BlackBerry could’ve alienated those who prefer the much simpler styling of the original candybar Pearl handset. With so many BlackBerry smartphones packing on Wi-Fi connectivity nowadays, RIM has managed to open the gates to a whole new class of owners who don’t feel the 3G love in their area. Fortunately though the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 is turning back to its original roots, there’s going to be one nice surprise which will garner itself as being a first of a kind. It’ll be the very first BlackBerry to feature Wi-Fi 802.11n connectivity for all your web browsing needs – so now the speed factor won’t be a problem with this one. Now if they can only improve the performance of the BlackBerry web browser – then we will all be truly impressed.
