Research in Motion (RIM)'s new BlackBerry Pearl 3G is set to join Vodafone's line-up of mobiles in the UK, the carrier has confirmed.
The Pearl 3G has become a talking point among tech fans in the last week principally because unlike other BlackBerry smartphones it does not feature a full QWERTY keypad.
Instead the business phone features a more traditional alphanumeric keypad, as sported by rather more basic mobiles.
In other areas the Pearl 3G is still a strong contender, however, with reports suggesting that a 624MHz processor will be under the bonnet, along with support for Wi-Fi and high speed mobile internet access and download via HSDPA.
It will also have a 3.2 megapixel camera complete with an integrated flash and automatic focus.
RIM is hoping to bring the Pearl 3G to the UK after the summer and Vodafone will be launching the phone on its network, complete with the much-hyped BlackBerry Operating System (OS) version 6.0.
