Vodafone UK and RIM Introduce the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 in the UK

Vodafone UK and Research In Motion (RIM) have introduced the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 in the UK with integrated GPS and a 2 megapixel camera. This business smartphone now includes the latest release of Vodafone Sat Nav, a powerful and user friendly navigation application, which now offers 3D mapping as standard.

The sleek, small and elegant BlackBerry Pearl 8110 smartphone integrates GPS along with powerful communications and multimedia capabilities. It is one of the smallest and lightest smartphones available and designed for people who want to make the most of their work and personal lives.

When combined with Vodafone Sat Nav powered by Telmap, the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 can help customers avoid getting stuck in traffic jams with instant access to live traffic alerts, and includes information to millions of points-of-interest such as hotels, restaurants, shopping and attractions. Customers also get up-to-date maps and directions, as the information is quickly retrieved over the Vodafone network as needed.

The BlackBerry Pearl 8110 is an essential lifestyle tool that offers all the advanced functionality and the intuitive user experience one expects from a BlackBerry smartphone. Customers can make calls, email, surf the net, take and send photographs, listen to music, watch and record videos, as well as access their organiser and a wide range of mobile applications.

The BlackBerry Pearl 8110 builds upon the original model with both hardware and software enhancements. The smartphone now features a 2 megapixel camera, with 5x digital zoom, enhanced flash and the capability to capture video in two resolutions: 240x180 or 176x144 for sharing via MMS. The expansion memory slot supports microSD/SDHC cards (8GB cards currently available on the market) for storing pictures, music and video, and is conveniently accessible from a side door. Customers can also plug in their favourite headphones or speakers through the 3.5mm jack. SureType keyboard system now features word completion, easier editing of misspelled words and a built-in spell checker, while the visual interface has been improved to make viewing messages and web pages more visually appealing.
