Today AT&T announced the BlackBerry Pearl 8120. The 8120 is the latest version of the Pearl, adding 802.11b/g Wi-Fi to its quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity options. In most other respects, it is similar to the Pearl 8130. It has a 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headset jack, stereo Bluetooth and external microSD slot. It is available to AT&T customers for $200 with two-year agreement and qualifying voice and data plans.

Motorola has dropped new details for its forthcoming edge high-end phone. While the top-end edge+ is already available from Verizon, the edge will be available unlocked in the US for $700 this summer.
This device is great, the Wifi works great for data.
Now coming to T-Mobile
and finally a blackberry that does video recording!
color options will the silver at first, then red, blue, and black will also release.
Anyway i dont understand why att brought this device to its lineup, the 8110 will be out shortly which would make much more sense as new choice. Tmo has more reason to carry the wifi version.
I guess my real question is can someone shed any light on this. Att really has no business carrying the wifi version just as tmo has no business carrying the gps version of the new pearl.
I am confused on whether TMobile will carry the 8110 or the 8120 though. I'm still leaning to wards the 8...

Either way I'm happy. I was about to pull the trigger on a Pearl with ATT. Now I just need to verify that I can get the wifi version. 🤣
The only carrier so far that uses wifi for UMA is T-Mobile with their hotspot@home service.
