Customers can use the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 smartphone inside and outside the home, making it easier to stay connected how and when they want, while effectively managing their phone costs.

The BlackBerry Pearl 8210 comes with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, a 240×260 display, SureType thumb keyboard and trackball navigation system, 64MB of internal memory, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 2MP camera, and a microSDHC expansion slot.

The Pearl 8120 can be yours for CAD$149.99 with a three-year voice and data Rogers Wireless plan or CAD$499.99 without any service plan. The Home Calling Zone can be added CAD$15/month for unlimited local calls or CAD$20/month for Canada-wide calls.
