Cingular officially launches BlackBerry Pearl

Every day closer we get to Christmas is a day less Cingular has to push buyers to snag the sexy (yet still somehow boring and disappointing) BlackBerry Pearl. Expect to pay $400 for the phone out of contract -- way, way too much -- and as little as $200 with a two year and rebate. Frankly, for those with two Bens looking for a QWERTY device that plays media, we think you can do a lot better.
