RIM announces CDMA BlackBerry Pearl 8130 – the BlackBerry Pearl 2.0 with GPS

BlackBerry Pearl 8130Research In Motion (RIM), makers of the venerable BlackBerry lineup of smartphones, has finally announced their anticipated BlackBerry Pearl 2.0 as the CDMA BlackBerry Pearl 8130. The update to the Pearl lineup is the first BlackBerry Pearl for email addicts on a CDMA network (Verizon/Sprint).

We’re expecting the BlackBerry 8130 to bring some updated software to the CDMA-table. The new OS will feature a new Browser (with a “Page View” option that displays the entire website and a magnifying glass that let’s you zoom in on different sections), new font-rendering (making smaller fonts easier to read), and a revamped Inbox application. But it doesn’t end there. As expected, the BlackBerry Pearl 2.0 (8130) will rock integrated GPS and navigation with BlackBerry maps. And, the SureType keyboard, stereo Bluetooth, microSD slot, and 3.5mm headphone jack will be complemented with a new, 2 megapixel camera.

Look for CDMA carriers to pick up this new BlackBerry Pearl 8130 next month – which bodes well for our leaked information that Sprint will be launching this BlackBerry Pearl 2.0 over the Thanksgiving Day Weekend. Pricing is not yet available.
