BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100, Milestone XT720 Coming to Wind Mobile?

Rumour has it Canadian carrier Wind Mobile will be picking up the BlackBerry 9100 and the Motorola Milestone (a.k.a. Motoroi) XT720. These would mark Wind’s second BlackBerry and Android phone, preceded by the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and the Huawei U8100, respectively.

Aside from size and form factor, the BlackBerry 9100 is mostly equivalent to the 9700: it has Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, an HVGA display, 3.2 megapixel camera, 256 MB of memory, and a 624 MHz processor. The only real difference spec-wise is that Pearl 3G handles Wi-Fi 802.11 n, which from my experience isn’t that big of a leap from g. Overall, it’s nice little device –  check out our review for the full rundown.

The Motorola XT720 will be Wind’s highest-end device, having an 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording, 3.7″ 480 x 854 touchscreen, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G supporting up to 10.2 Mbps,  and running Android 2.1.  The XT720 has been available across Europe and on Cincinnati Bell for awhile now, but it looks like Wind will be the first Canadian carrier to get it. We had some hands-on time with the XT720 shortly after it had made its Korea debut – take a look at the video over here.

Keep an eye on the Wind Mobile online store for these two phones – the Pearl 3G should be showing up in the next couple of days for $320, with the XT720 coming shortly after.
