T-Mobile USA has officially introduced today the Research in Motion's BlackBerry Pearl. The biggest difference brought to the Pearl is the trackball (yep, just like on the Sidekick 3), which is meant to replace the scroll wheel.

Features of the BlackBerry Pearl include a 65k color display (240x260 pixels), a 1.3 megapixel camera with flash, Media player with MP3, AAC, MPEG-4 support, 64MB memory, microSD card slot, Trackball, Bluetooth 2.0 and SureType keyboard. All this is a slick design, 4.2 x 2.0 x 0.57 inches (107 x 50 x 14.5mm), weighing 3.1 ounces.

The BlackBerry Pearl will be launched on September 12. Pricing wasn't disclosed yet, but everybody is talking about a possible $199 with a 2-year service agreement, so why not follow through?

Damn you Treo! I have already ordered you. My brother was right, I should have waited a little more, but I had no idea that it would launch this soon.

is there a way to take it back? I mean ... will I get my money back if I tell them the real reason?

Thanks!
