RIM planning 3.2-megapixel, media-savvy Pearl 2

BlackBerry Pearl 2 Komet

Research in Motion's upcoming BlackBerry Pearl overhaul will be even more remarkable than expected, according to an insider with access to the design. Internally nicknamed the "Komet," the new Pearl 2 will remain slim but will back its Wi-Fi include a 3.2-megapixel camera with an improved flash; like the larger Curve, it should also include a full-sized 3.5mm headphone jack. RIM further intends major, music-oriented software changes with support for protected Windows Media music stores and a much enhanced voice recorder.

Ergonomics will also see an upgrade, the source claims. The microSD slot will be accessible without first removing the battery, allowing a relatively quick swap for extra cards. Build quality should see an upgrade and address complaints from some users about keys and other fragile parts that wear down in frequent use.

No new release information has surfaced, although the phone will see one of its Canadian designer's largest ad campaigns yet when it launches in late summer in metallic colors such as black, blue, gold, and red. [viaBGR]
