Looks like we were pretty close with our mock-up, folks – I’m pretty happy about that – but even bigger news is that AT&T (formerly Cingular) has officially released the red Pearl into the wild as of this morning. As was expected, all of the specs stay the same, but a new “beautiful, dark red finish” takes the place of the standard black – and I’m pretty sure I don’t like it. Who’s with me?
“The BlackBerry Pearl is a big hit with users because it looks as great as it performs,” said Mark Guibert, vice president, corporate marketing, for Research In Motion. “We look forward to fueling the momentum of the BlackBerry Pearl in the market with the addition of another eye-catching color and finish.”
“The BlackBerry Pearl is a powerful and feature-rich phone and yet it is also amazingly small, elegant and easy-to-use,” said Mike Woodward, executive director, mobile professional solutions, for AT&T. “Now the red BlackBerry Pearl provides our customers with another stunning choice for staying connected in their business and personal lives.”
