Getting a BlackBerry 8900 is probably right now the next best thing to getting a BlackBerry Storm, so we’ll have to do with this device, just launched in Germany. Its most impressive feature is the brand new trackball, one step up comparing to the ones on previous Pearl units. The handset has some impressive specs, like the 480 x 360 display, Wi-Fi, GPS or the 3.2 megapixel camera.
Before you get too excited, remember that this phone comes without 3G connectivity, but it has just about everything else, DivX, XviD, H.263, WMV3 video format support, great email integration, sleep mode, password protection plus support for GSM/GPRS (900/1800 MHz) and EDGE networks. Expect to use tons of third party apps, a hot browser and multimedia features.
T-Mobile’s online store will start selling the BlackBerry 8900 over the next days for 4.95 EUR (is this a type-o?) on a two year contract or 359.90 EUR with no commitment. The contract also includes a free push webmail service that last about 6 months.
