If Moto can do it, RIM can as well with the Pearl.
In fact, there are many thin CDMA phones out there.
Have you used these phones and experienced the extremely crappy battery life? Just because the phones were released that doesn't mean that they performed well. I have used the Samsung A900 and the Motorola RAZR V3m and the battery life of these phones is god-awful compared to their GSM equivalents.
