T-Mobile intros BlackBerry 8120 with HotSpot@Home

BBerry 8120 at T-Mobile

T-Mobile on Tuesday morning became the second carrier in North America after AT&T to carry the BlackBerry Pearl 8120. In its new trim, the phone's distinctive Wi-Fi is used to support T-Mobile's HotSpot@Home and potentially saves money on calling; users can place calls for free from any Wi-Fi hotspot, including any official T-Mobile location. The phone adds all the improvements that come along with the upgraded Pearl, including the 2-megapixel camera, externally accessible microSDHC card slot, a full-size headphone jack, and better construction.

This new customization of the candybar smartphone also supports T-Mobile's myFaves calling plans, but relies primarily on RIM's stock software, including BlackBerry Maps for assisted GPS and instant messaging across four major IM networks. T-Mobile will sell the phone in gray starting from April 14th and has not announced the price, though the 8120 may command a premium over the stock 8100 still on sale.
