BlackBerry Pearl 9100 pictured with SureType and 3G connectivity
The guys at Technomovida were able to get their hands on the unreleased and unannounced BlackBerry Pearl 9100. Running on BlackBerry OS, this Pearl offers 3G connectivity and, as you can plainly see from the pictures, uses the SureType keyboard which puts the kibosh to earlier reported talk that this Pearl would feature a QWERTY keyboard. The Pearl 9100 has 802.11n Wi-Fi on board and is equipped with an optical trackpad instead of a trackball. As we already told you, evidence shows that this device will most likely find its way over to T-Mobile in the States, although we have no date for launch and no pricing information.

Talk about copying Sony with the music controls at the top of the device. Check out Sony's X-Series Walkman's. Still, I think that's a spectacular idea, although Sony did a much better job because you can actually feel out their buttons. Not to mention, I can't see the Pearl being that great of a media device to even deserve having that. Whatever though. Nokia's E55 is much much prettier.

It's media player is just as fast as an iPod and they have had music keys on the top of the phone before this model so your post = fail.

Come try a new Nokia, and you'll never go back to a BB.
