Mark Evans notes that the Blackberry Pearl has arrived here in Canada. $249 after rebates and signing up for a three year contract with Rogers, or $449 with a one year contract. Ouch! It seems steep when compared to the Nokia 6682, another 1.3 megapixel camera phone. RIM ought to bump up the quality of the camera on the Pearl. At 1.3 megapixels, it's pretty dated. Applications like scanr, which turns your camera phone into a digital scanner, copier and fax, would seem to be a great fit for Blackberry's business focused customer base, but require a minimum 2 megapixel camera. Nokia's latest N-Series phones, incidentally, all sport 3 and 5 megapixel cameras.
