I?m not hating on the BlackBerry Pearl 8100. After all, it was the first BlackBerry to include a camera, but that was two years ago. So, needless to say, when Fido announced the availability of the 8100 and touted it like it was a brand new device, it made me chuckle a bit. Still, the device is the first BlackBerry for the subsidiary of Rogers, which most likely means that if successful, we could see the 8800 or the Curve series on the carrier's network.
The price, you ask? A mind numbing $400 on a month-to-month plan, or $25 for a three year contract, coupled with one of the data plans below:
After seeing data prices like that (and I won't even begin to talk about the phone price), I really appreciate my $29.99 BlackBerry Web and E-Mail plan.
