BlackBerry Pearl 9100 Stratus Comes with T9 Style Keyboard

Comments


The updated Pearl 9100 has been showing up with a wide variety of keyboard styles. First, it was a SureType keyboard, then a small QWERTY, and now we’re seeing it in a T9 style. Currently, we don’t know much about the BlackBerry 9105, except that it’s rumored to be hitting the European market and Fido. The European market rumor makes a lot of sense as the device has a really European, SMS-centric look to it. Maybe the keyboard stylings are all designated for various carriers and what they believe will sell best. I’m thinking full QWERTY for Verizon, SureType for Fido, and T9 for Europe. We can expect the release date of this phone around the May/June time frame.

The rumored specs for the BlackBerry 9105 are:

  • 256 MB Flash memory
  • MicroSD card
  • 3G
  • WiFi
  • GPS
  • OS 5.0.notsure
  • TrackPad
  • External multimedia keys
  • 360×400 LCD
  • Light weight
  • Small size (108x50x13.3 mm)
  • 3.2MP camera, 3x digital zoom, image stabilization, autofocus, flash
  • Video recording
  • Watch videos in landscape
  • Bluetooth stereo support
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack

Any European BlackBerry users want to comment on the form factor? Personally, I don’t care for candybar shapes. I love my Bold 9000 boat.
