Pearl available with Verizon
The pre-ordering for the Pearl has been removed. You can now Order the Pearl from the Verizon web site and have it delivered as early as Monday Nov 5th. It will be available for in-store purchases on Nov 8th.
The BlackBerry Pearl 8130 smartphone was announced as one of the four “next” phones for the carrier and is the second one available for purchase (after the Juke), coming at $199 with two-year contract after rebate.
The CDMA variant of the Pearl is very similar to the GSM one which is available with both AT&T and T-Mobile but slightly improves its multimedia functionality with video recording and 3.5mm stereo jack.
If our information is right, it will be available in January also in Pink, but this is still not officially announced.
Thanks Omie and Zechariah!

I'm really looking forward to this. My Treo 650 is going south and I'm looking to switch to a company that actually releases new phones instead of repackaging old ones. The only thing I'm worried about is the lack of a QWERTY keyboard.

When I saw your post, when you did click on the last bullet for the pearl about the EVDO, it did have a windows internet explorer screen on there. I thought it was funny also that they would make that large of a mistake...but oh well. It's gone now.

....... I have the screen shot of the Internet Explorer on the Pearl. I saw this post right after he did it and I went and checked it. It you want it then send me a e-mail ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and I will send it back to you. So that way you two stop arguing and the other dude will believe Russ....
