Well, there it is: the BlackBerry Pearl 9105 complete with T9 keypad. The images, which were posted and subsequently removed from the Google Group id-blackberry-archive, show the phone as looking identical to the render we saw at the end of March. What’s particularly interesting to us is that even though the keypad is quite the departure from SureType, no changes appear to have been made to the configuration settings in Input Options when compared to the current Pearl and Pearl Flip line-up. When we last checked in with the 9105, word was going around that it was headed to Europe in May or June, but recently a few little birdies informed us that it will also be making an appearance Stateside. We’ll see.
