BlackBerry 8110

Crazy John’s in Australia is offering the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 for free, with a $39 BlackBerry Service Cap. As with most plans, the headlines don’t tell the whole story.

The plan requires that you sign up for 2 years at a $40 per month, and with that you get unlimited email and internet. Be warned though, that calls are charged at 47 cents per 30 seconds, with a 35 cent initial charge.

While the calls are expensive, this truly is the best BlackBerry bundle deal we have seen to date. To get a BlackBerry Pearl 81XX from Wal-Mart, you need to sign on to a service plan of $99.99 per month or higher and in conjunction with any feature or bundle or any other plan option at least $24.99 per month or greater.

BlackBerry 8110 sans contract from T-Mobile for 179.99 GBP

In order to capture a certain part of the consumer market, a device needs to be sold without a contract. Too many consumers are scared away by them and would rather pay the fees up front. Truth be told, there are a ton of ways to get out of contracts and you’re better off getting the hardware discount.

Would you really pay 180 GBP for a BlackBerry Pearl? Seems overpriced.

The T-Mobile deal includes a year’s unlimited email and internet access, but not any inclusive calls. The Orange deal charges £5 per month for email and net access, but does come at a cheaper price.

Wow, Vodafone is on a roll this week. First, the BlackBerry Storm in the UK, the BlackBerry Bold in Malta and now a bevvy of BlackBerrys in the Channel Islands. Airtel-Vodafone and RIM jointly announced the launch of the BlackBerry Curve 8310 and BlackBerry Pearl 8110, both of which include GPS.

BlackBerry Pearl Sandstone Pink

For BlackBerry Pearl users who can’t get enough of the color pink, today is your lucky day. AT&T has placed the Sandstone Pink BlackBerry Pearl 8110 on their website. The Sandstone Pearl 8110 retails for $150 on a two-year contract, but also features a $50 rebate which drops the device down to an even $100. Considering the price and the color, I think the Sandstone Pink BlackBerry Pearl 8110 will sell like hotcakes this holiday season.
