BlackBerry 8130 gets official

BlackBerry 8130Well, here’s the official release, hot on the heels of Verizon’s teaser campaign. Heralded as the first CDMA BlackBerry Pearl, the 8130 will be packing high-speed EVDO, GPS, A2DP, a 3.5mm headphone jack, 2mpx camera with video capture and a whole new interface including a browser overhaul with streaming video support. We saw some UI upgrades not too long ago, which included media playlists and the BlackBerry 8130 will be where we see them first. As for video capture, I guess we can see where T-Mobile screwed up their BlackBerry 8320 description - it was the 8130 they were talking about. It’s cool, T-Mo, all the model numbers screw with our heads too. North American CDMA carriers will be seeing this puppy come November.
