We’ve been seeing tons of news about the BlackBerry Pearl lately. The second generation of the device, including a CDMA version, has been released, and carriers seem to be scrambling to pick it up. Count Vodafone as the first UK company to be in on the hoopla.
“The BlackBerry 8110 offers all the same great features of the original Pearl 8100 but with some great software and hardware enhancements, including a 2-megapixel camera and built-in GPS. So, alongside our latest release of Sat Nav everyday Vodafone customers have the latest business tools all in one handset, helping them make the most of their working day, wherever they are”, comments Kyle Whitehill, director of the Enterprise Business Unit, Vodafone UK.
Sounds like a good deal for UK customers. The phones are said to be priced “started at free,” which is always nice. Free is good. But free means you’ll have to buy something else. [Sky News]
