While we still may not have an official answer for our trackball woes
, RIM's off to the races planning their next Pearl
release -- this time around, Vodafone gets the honors. Styling looks to be identical to its American T-Mobile cousin (save for that little Voda logo down there, of course), and the guts carry over as well, meaning our British friends will be no better off when it comes to 3G data. No word on the exact day these things will materialize on store shelves, but Vodafone is more than happy to take your pre-order now for £127.66 (about $240).
