BlackBerry 8130 at Sprint

Sprint today announced its anticipated launch of the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 in the US, becoming the second carrier in the country to offer the compact smartphone after Verizon. Like the reference version, Sprint's version offers true GPS and is tightly connected to the provider's Navigation service for automatic routing, voice directions, and location searches. The Pearl also takes advantage of its 3G access for music downloads and video streams from the Sprint Music Store and Sprint TV respectively, and provides on-demand news updates through customized feeds.

The core design is otherwise the same as the upgraded stock Pearl and brings a 2-megapixel camera, an externally accessible microSD slot, and a native 3.5mm headphone jack to the design which had originally shipped as GSM-only last year. Sprint declines to provide an exact release date or price and says only that the 8130 will be available online and in shops sometime next month.
