RIM is getting ready to launch a successor for the popular BlackBerry Pearl 8100 / 8110 / 8120: meet the BlackBerry Pearl 9100, codenamed BlackBerry Stratus or BlackBerry Striker.
Like most of RIM’s new smartphones, the Pearl 9100 comes with an optical trackpad instead of a trackball. It has an overall glossy look, and a SureType keypad that looks larger than the one the 81xx models have.
The BlackBerry Pearl 9100 also features 3G and a camera with LED flash, but other specs are not known at the moment.
There’s no word yet on when RIM intends to announce the BlackBerry Pearl 9100, but, in the meantime, here’s a short video preview of it:
