There’s been a little confusion, seemingly on all accounts, as to when the Pearl would drop in Canada. Well, thankfully a little nugget of a press release surfaced yesterday eve, letting us breathe easier.
The October 3 press release mentions Rogers’ release of not only the Pearl, but a couple other devices: the Nokia E62, Samsung D807, and next month, Rogers will add the Sony Ericsson K790i to its roster of exclusive devices. So we can actually buy the Pearl now? Excellent news. Now I guess I just sit on my hands for that 8800.
“Rogers Wireless continues to offer the latest innovations in mobile communications,” says John Boynton, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Wireless. “The BlackBerry Pearl is the latest example in a long line of exclusive offerings from Rogers Wireless. Throughout our history we have brought best-in-class handsets to the Canadian market, representing a cross-section of the best in smartphone technology, on email service, MP3 music as well as design and style.”
