BlackBerry 8800 Gets Official

We all knew it was coming, but RIM just pulled the curtain back on the BlackBerry 8800, AKA the Full-QWERTY Pearl.

The latest offering in the super-slim ‘berries is a worthy successor to the Pearl (which was my favorite phone of all last year.) It comes loaded with a built-in GPS, microSD slot, a media player, high-contrast 320×240 display, quad-band GSM/GPRS, and EDGE. It’s a mere 0.6-inches thick, weighs just 4.7 ounces, and despite rumors to the contrary, has no camera or WiFi.

Look for it on AT&T/Cingular/Whatever on Feb 21.
