Diamonds and Pearls

As Fashion Week descends upon us even our gadgets are going fabu.

That’s right, RIM, the crew behind Blackberry mobile devices (not to be confused with The Blackberrie, obvi) will debut the Blackberry Pearl this week.

The Pearl, as slim and sleek as the Motorola RAZR, has all the original Blackberry capabilities. New features include a 1.3 mega pixel camera, downloadable MP3 ringtones, 64MB flash, and Bluetooth 2.0, just to name a few.

So for those of you who are still lugging around the cobalt blue laptop-like version (that would be me) and then carry a cell phone because the archaic one can’t possibly double (me again), it’s time for a serious upgrade.

And since these things are constantly attached to our heads and our hands, they need to be a lot more goddess and far less geek. The Pearl is on the right track.

Final Word: The Pearl rolls into T-Mobile stores Tuesday, September 12th; $199 with service agreement.
