BlackBerry Pearl 3G FCC

Following up on our previous reports that the BlackBerry Pearl 3G may not be headed to T-Mobile, it looks like the new consumer-friendly 'Berry actually will be heading to the No. 4 carrier.  T-Mobile users can finally breath a sigh of relief, because the AWS device passed through the FCC today ready for use on T-Mobile in the U.S. as well as WIND and Mobilicity up in Canada.  Both the 14-key and 20-key versions went through, so BlackBerry fans on T-Mobile will have their choice of keyboards when the device finally lands.  AT&T and T-Mobile have yet to acknowledge the devices so we don't have any info yet on pricing or availability, but we'll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more.
