blackberry-pearl-2-mobile.jpgIt’s been expected for several months now, and finally, finally we have news confirming its existence – yes, the BlackBerry Pearl 2, or 8130 for folk with good memories, has been officially announced. Praise be!

Pocket-Lint is reporting that RIM has launched the follow-up to the insanely popular smartphone in the States, and that it supports 3G internet access. Not only that, but it has GPS with BlackBerry Maps, A2DP Bluetooth, 2-megapixel camera, a noise-cancellation feature on the microphone, SureType word completion, and weighs just 96 grams.

But that’s not all, as it’s packin’ heat, business-style, with a lurvely updated visual interface, the email program has been upgraded, and even the internet browser has been poked at, so it now produces full page view modes when necessary. It’ll be available come November, and once consumers get over the small hurdle of choosing between amethyst-black or silver, they’ll have to cough up around $200 on a 2-year contract.
