AT&T unleashes Wi-Fi BB Pearl


I find that AT&T’s newest BlackBerry to be quite odd. Maybe I’m crazy, but I thought AT&T loved them some GPS while T-Mobile loved them some Wi-Fi. In any case, AT&T has added the BB Pearl 8120 for about $200 with the usual 2-year contract. It’s the latest and greatest Pearl (2-megapixel camera w/ video) so get ready for some hot 802.11g action, ladies.

I was on the plane yesterday and noticed a sarariman sitting next to me with a Pearl. I don’t get it. Why would anyone in business want a QWERTY-less BB? I know it’s small and all that jazz, but anyone want to fill me in?
