Hands-On with RIM’s 3G BlackBerry Pearl 9105 (Video)

Apr 26, 2010
MobileSmall and Medium Business's Al Sacco got some hands-on time with RIM's new BlackBerry Pearl 9105 smartphone at WES 2010.

This morning BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) unveiled three new BlackBerry smartphones: The BlackBerry Pearl 9100; the Pearl 9105 with a traditional “T9” cell-phone keypad; and the BlackBerry Bold 9650.

The BlackBerry Pearl 9105 is probably the most notable of the bunch, as it’s the first RIM device to sport a T9 keyboard and along with the Pearl 9100, it’s the only BlackBerry to support 802.11n Wi-Fi.

I got some hands-on time with the Pearl 9105 in the WES press room and I snapped the following video.
