BB 8130 for Sprint in Nov

The enhanced, CDMA-based BlackBerry 8130 should be available from Sprint in November, Boy Genius claims while citing a photo and leaked details. The slim smartphone, nicknamed the Pearl 2, should arrive roughly in time for the American Thanksgiving holiday in November and will be fundamentally identical in hardware to the Verizon model. Its 2-megapixel camera, EVDO Internet access, and GPS (in place of AT&T's Wi-Fi) will be virtually identical. Which of Sprint's proprietary services would be available on the new Pearl is unknown.

Costs to buy and run the BlackBerry on Sprint's network are also unknown. However, the company is also primed to add a CDMA version of the BlackBerry Curve in early 2008 and will likely represent a similar upgrade, though details of precise changes will need to wait until closer to the actual release.
