If you read the Article it is talking about the 8830. The Author has them confused the Pearl and the 8830 "In Q4 of this year Sprint will introduce the new Blackberry Pearl2, and many are stating that they will leave their treo's behind for the new Pearl. Many have written here and else where that they will be snatching up the 8830 as soon as it's available." This is what all the reliable sites are saying. When the new Pearl is released there is a 99.999 % chance it will be a GSM based carrier that gets it, Tmo or ATT. Maybe at the end of Q4 2008 there will be a CDMA Pearl. Writers that don't know what there talking about are easily confused. Stick to The Boy Genius Report or Howard Forums for your news.
