Optus will be carrying the BlackBerry 8120 as of the first week of December, just in time for Christmas. The Wi-Fi Pearl packing a 2 megapixel video-capturing camera and externally-acessible microSD slot is set for a $659 recommended retail price. Pacific VP Norm Lo is understandably excited about the 8120 coming out.
“BlackBerry Smartphones are well received in Australia and we are pleased to be working with Optus to introduce another RIM innovation,” said RIM President of Asia Pacific, Norm Lo. “The new BlackBerry Pearl 8120, with its elegant design, advanced multimedia features and Wi-Fi capabilities, is perfect for both personal and professional use.”
