SPECIAL EDITION - BlackBerry Connection - Announcing BlackBerry Pearl
BlackBerry Pearl. Small. Smart and Stylish.

Dear Subscriber,

Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal describes it as "the smallest smart phone from any maker with a keyboard" and "a beautiful piece of work". Bruce Myerson of Associated Press calls it, "Light and Lovely." Paul Taylor of Financial Times says, "In terms of ‘wow’, the Pearl is tough to beat." And David Pogue of the New York Times calls it "a new sweet-spot champion, a do-everything phone that comes closer to the bull’s-eye than anything before it."

And these are just some of the rave reviews!

Now we would like to introduce you to the new BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8100™ smartphone. It is a small, sleek handset that has it all -- phone, email, camera, media player, instant messaging, organizer, browser and more. Plus it’s enterprise friendly.

With the BlackBerry Pearl, applications are integrated, so you can do what you want, when you want. For instance, you can snap a photo and share it in an email to colleagues or friends, or listen to music as you browse the web.

All this power comes in the sleekest BlackBerry® handset yet — just 4.2" x 1.97" x .57" in size and weighing approximately 3.1 ounces.
