These things happen. It seems we jumped the gun when we previously noted that the recently FCC-approved RIM BlackBerry 8120 Pearl will rock both an integrated-GPS module and WiFi. Turns out, the reference to “GPS” in the FCC documentation was merely a section that details how to connect a Bluetooth GPS receiver to the BlackBerry Pearl 8120. Closer inspection leads us to believe that RIM has not figured out how to fit a GPS and WiFi radio into the Pearl-package – which means that the BlackBerry 8120 Pearl will likely be launching with only a WiFi radio.
Sorry to disappoint all you BlackBerry fans waiting for a GPS and WiFi-addled Pearl. But, T-Mobile fans will be even more disappointed to hear that the BlackBerry 8120 Pearl should be hitting AT&T’s network before T-mobile.
