T-Mobile's String Of Pearls go live

Here it is, folks. The moment you’ve all been patiently waiting for. The most poorly named product launch in recent memory has finally run its course. Today, T-Mobile released three new iterations of its popular BlackBerry Pearl handset. There’s nothing too exciting here…it’s the same old SureType phone, though that push email is oh-so-tasty. The real “news” however, is that you can now sport a Pearl in Red (which is mysteriously dubbed “Sunset”), Gold, or Blue. Excited yet? Neither are we. Each of these handsets will set you back $149.99 on a two year bid, which is a tad too much for a soon-to-be outdated handset, if you ask us. That said, if you absolutely need to stand out from the rest of the Pearl-toting crowd, this is pretty much the only game in town right now. They’re available immediately from T-Mobile’s online store.
