The issue with something like the pearl is most likely that it is already a bit of a niche market for them and so they are less likely to introduce features that further reduces that niche by pushing up costs.
Just look at the latest pearl, the flip introduced a new form factor, but came in with basic features and a low cost from the carriers and I would be surprised if the next pearl would be a new candybar design or maybe even a slider since they haven't done one of those yet.
