blackberry pearl whiteResearch in Motion (RIM) and T-Mobile have launched a new version of the – in stylish white – called Blackberry Pearl. The new white Blackberry offers the same features as the original, most notably of course the push e-mail service offering access to up to 10 accounts, the popular IM clients for MSN, ICQ, Yahoo! and AOL Messenger as well as a HTML browser for accessing normal websites while on the move.

Not only does the Blackberry come equipped with the standard mentioned on the move business features, but also multimedia features including being able to play MP3 and ACC music files and MPEG4 and H.263 video files which can be viewed on the 240 x 260 pixel display.

Connectivity including worldwide roamingis provided by Quad GSM / GPRS as well as EDGE, as well as Bluetooth for close range connections to other devices or computers.

One of the new features included is Blackberry Maps, which enables the user to use mapping and local area functions and also interacts with other applications, making it for example possible to define maps for contacts and sending of maps via e-mail. Sadly the Blackberry Pearl does not have built-in GPS, which would turn it into a mobile office and navigation system.
