The Vodafone UK website, for a brief while, had the page for the upcoming Blackberry Pearl 3G opened. The page which is not presently accessible reveals one major change on the new Blackberry 3G – it no longer comes with a SureType keyboard. Instead, it has replaced it with a more conventional numeric keypad.
That besides, the phone includes many of the features available on the more advanced Blackberry handsets like GPS, Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. It also comes with the touch sensitive panel that is now observed on most Blackberry phones.
The Blackberry Pearl 3G page did not have any mention of the release dates though you may sign up to receive updates on the same.
