Default New Pearl Soon?

Please Login to Remove!

I read something about a new firmware or possibly a new pearl coming out within the year.

I read this on a tech-news site and didn't pay much attention because I have the 8700c. It broke today and I'm looking at getting the Pearl, but I want to wait if I should wait for the new "model". Anyone know anything about this?

Thanks

-Cody
