New Sprint Pearl 2 details

Sprint Following the brief viewing of an EVDO Pearl, a few more official-looking details have leaked through on Sprint’s Pearl 2. The 2 megapixel camera seems to be what the Pearl 2 will be packing (so long, dreams of 3 megapixels), and is slated for a Q4 release this year. That time frame lines up nicely with rumors of Telus releasing their own Pearl 2 before the end of the year.

(While Simon seems to think that these new Sprint Pearl details confirm that a 3.2 Mpx camera is not to be in RIM’s next SureType BlackBerry, I’m holding firm on my stance that the new GSM Pearl will have sweet 3.2 Mpx camera goodness, as well as other features such as Wi-Fi, while the CDMA variant will be more of a ‘tweener 1.5 Pearl, ed.)

Favorite Browser,

Yeah, that’s the thing: the Pearl 2 isn’t just one device, it’s probably 3: 8130 (CDMA Pearl 1.5), 8120 (Slimmer GSM Pearl 2 with Wi-Fi and 3.2 Mpx camera), and hell maybe even an 8110 (GSM with GPS?).

Once again, CDMA subscribers are likely to be boned. But hey, at least you’re not T-Mobile, who are simply getting new colours of the Pearl 1 in the near future.
