BlackBerry Pearl now available from Vodafone New Zealand
Vodafone New Zealand and Research In Motion (RIM) are bringing in the BlackBerry Pearl handset, a feature-rich smartphone based on the RIM BlackBerry technology in a candybar form factor.

The BlackBerry Pearl measures only 10.7 x 5 x 1.5 cm and weighing approximately 89 grams.

The new handset also comes with a 1.3 megapixel digital camera with 3 zoom levels (up to 5X) and built-in flash, multimedia capabilities and an expandable memory slot. The digital camera can be remotely disabled to allow the device to be used in secure facilities.

The handset is supported on both BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry Enterprise Server, providing support for both personal and corporate email accounts as well as other mobile applications.

Multimedia capabilities include support for playback of MP3 and AAC music files, as well as MPEG4 and H.263 video formats, plus polyphonic, mp3 and MIDI ring tones.

A keyboard using the SureType keyboard technology provides full QUWERTY with reduced number of keys, while browsing the device's contents is possible through the use of a trackball, dedicated 'menu' and 'escape' keys.

Speaker Independent Voice Recognition (SIVR) for Voice Activated Dialling (VAD), dedicated 'send', 'end', and 'mute' keys, speakerphone, and Bluetooth support for hands-free use with headsets, car kits and Bluetooth peripherals are also part of the package.

The large 240x260 pixels colour display can self-adjust its brightness thanks to a light-sensing technology that automatically sets the screen, trackball and keyboard backlight levels for optimal viewing in outdoor, indoor and dark environments.

Users have 64MB built-in flash memory for storage, which can be expanded via a microSD expansion slot to up to 2GB.
