As seen in the images below, the Pearl 9100 supports WCDMA bands I, IV and VIII – meaning 2100MHz, 1700MHz (AWS) and 900MHz.
Since T-Mobile and Wind are the only North American carriers that use the 1700MHz spectrum, they’re almost certainly among the ones to offer the 9100.

Apart from 3G, the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 (also known as BlackBerry Stratus or BlackBerry Striker) features a SureType QWERTY keypad, Wi-Fi, an optical trackpad and a camera with LED flash. We don’t know when RIM will announce the Pearl 9100, but it should happen soon.
