BlackBerry Pearl 3G Has Landed… In Canada
BlackBerry Pearl 3G Checklist
- Tiny hands? Check.
- Blazing-fast 3G speeds? Check.
- Uber-addicting BlackBerry Messenger? Check.
- BlackBerry OS 5? Check.
You can now rejoice: the BlackBerry Pearl 3G is coming your way.
Just a few days ago, Rogers notified all of its stores that BlackBerry Pearl 3Gs are ready to be sold and will arrive in stores in a few days. As expected, Rogers will sell the phone for $49.99 with a 3-year contract, $324.99 with a 2-year contract, and $379.99 with a 1-year contract. If you’re looking to be free from that yucky binding document they call a contract, it’ll run you a cool $449.99.
TELUS has also released the BlackBerry Pearl 3G in an attractive pink color, along with your standard shade of black. For each Pearl 3G sale, TELUS will donate $25 to Breast cancer research. TELUS, a cheaper alternative to Rogers, is charging $29.99 on a 3-year contract, $249.99 on a 2-year contract and $299.99 on a 1-year contract.
If you live in Canada, we Americans are a little jealous at the moment as no US-carriers have officially announced the Pearl.
We’ll continue to keep you posted on the juicy details, such as the US launch, as well as any other Pearl 3G-related tid bits.
