Blackberry 8120 T-mobile Pearl Hotspot @home launch release 4/14/08 - RIM

April 14, 2008 Is the date of the Blackberry Pearl 2- 8120 release on T-Mobile. I'm as happy as the people in this photo, and they only have a basic hotspot@home phone - Nokia 6086. (However they received free service for a year as well)

 

I currently own the 8100 Pearl and have been anxiously awaiting a blackberry which is compliant with the UMA hotspot @home Talk Forever Service, which allows calls to be placed from a mobile phone using WIFI internet router. It cost $10/mo however minutes are not taken from your "bucket".

 

I was excited when the Curve came out, yet didn't want to upgrade to a phone that was wider and had smaller keys than my current pearl. The pearl has 2 letters on some keys, but the phone is "smart" and knows what word you are typing. It works well for me.

Has anyone gone from a pearl to a curve, or the other way around, I'd be curious as to what *you* think of the different style keyboards)

 

We'll see if I get the pearl 8120 w/ Tmobile this week. I'd love to add the hotspot @home service and try it out.

 

The photo above was taken when the hotspot @home launched earlier this summer. I covered an event for Tmobile's PR company. Below is more info from that.

Family plays with new hotspot @home phone won in a recent contest.

 

In Scottsdale, Arizona over 100 people lined up in bathrobes outside a T-Mobile store for the chance to win the new T-Mobile HotSpot @Home service, which allows unlimited calling over Wi-Fi from home. More than 20 people actually spent the night in front of the store. More info here-> tinyurl.com/3xfglj
