Meet the Verizon BlackBerry 8130. Is it the BlackBerry Pearl 2?


Verizon BlackBerry Pearl 2 8130Hooboy, it does exist. It’s been a long, hard waiting period for Verizon customers who wanted some sweet, CDMA BlackBerry Pearl goodness. According to these snatched images from the Boy Genius, it looks like RIM has delivered in a big way, with none other than the BlackBerry 8130 — which looks a lot like the BlackBerry Pearl 2. We’re talking 3.5 mm headset jack, 2 Mpx camera, and MicroSD support (is it external? Why no MicroSDHC?), all rapped up in a neat 1xEVDO package. Although, without the rumored Wi-Fi and 3.2Mpx camera in the Komet, you might call it the BlackBerry Pearl 1.5.

Verizon customers (and maybe Sprint too?) are set to receive the device sometime in November, 3 months after the GSM Pearl 2’s launch (makes perfect sense). So tell us guys, does it look like it was worth the wait?
