The BlackBerry Pearl 9100 vs the Pearl 8130 pictures

CrackBerry Kevin has posted more pics of the Pearl 9100, this time comparing it side by side with the Pearl 8130. I’m not sure how long these pics will stay up because I’ve been noticing RIM’s legal team has been really diligent with takedown notices for anything 9100 related.

The Pearl series have been called the “girly” BlackBerry by a lot of users and personally I still think it looks this way. It’s something about the device being tall and slim, it just gives it a girlish look. What do you think? Will this device appeal to a man, woman or either?

Nan PalmeroWhen you see Nan Palmero punching out the air like a BlackBerry-enhanced Adonis, it can only mean one thing: OS 4.5 is available for your BlackBerry. Today it’s the BlackBerry Curve 8330 and BlackBerry Pearl 8130 on the Sprint network. We have a quick rundown of new features in OS 4.5, as well as download instructions for your BlackBerry enjoyment.

OS 4.5 Features and Improvements:

    OTASL (Over The Air Software Loading) This enables all future versions of handheld software to be downloaded and installed wirelessly

    MMS (Audio, pictures, text, or all three in the same message)

    Docs to Go (device-side Word, Excel, and Powerpoint document editing capabilities)

Sounds pretty great, right? Download instructions for BIS and BES users are after the jump. We’ve also heard that OS 4.5 will be released for the BlackBerry 8830 in a few weeks, with an 8703(!) release coming at the end of Q1.

Thanks for the tip, Rob!

Telus BlackBerry Pearl 8130 $0 until December 25th (BlackBerry Bytes)

Comments

Probably hoping to take the sting out of a $50 Rogers BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, Telus is offering the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 for free until December 25th with a 3 year contract and $45 minimum data plan. We recommend purchasing the Pink Pearl 8130, so Telus will donate $25 to Rethink Breast Cancer.

Telus BlackBerry Storm

Our friends over at BlackBerry Sync have a bundle of Telus BlackBerry news today. First up is a possible release date for the BlackBerry Storm 9530: November 17th. If the dates from our BlackBerry Storm launch roundup are correct, that would place Telus’ launch less than a week ahead of Canadian nemesis Bell.

In addition, Telus will be introducing red and blue colored BlackBerry Pearl 8130s sometime next month. You can see an image of what they’ll look like after the jump.
