BlackBerry Pearl 8110 (Vodafone Italy)The BlackBerry Pearl 8110 is officially here. RIM today has announced the coming of the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 to Vodafone in Spain. Furthermore, our friend Stefano over at BB World sent word he received the an official invite to RIM/Vodafone's Milan launch party for the 8110 coming on January 30th.

And just today, I received word from one of my trusted Rogers guys that corporate store reps are going to be receiving their 8110 Pearl demos this week. Not hard to believe considering we have already had BlackBerry Pearl 8110 in the wild sightings. It looks like Canadians will have to continue to wait to see a WiFi enabled BlackBerry hit Canada - it seems Rogers will introduce an 8110 before an 8120 or 8320. It raises a good question...if you have to choose between having GPS and WiFi on a device (all other things equal), which would you go for?

Not Pearl 8110 related, but potentially of even greater importance, BlackBerrySync is stating that a CDMA version of the Curve, the 8330, is on its way (apparently fact, not just hope) and that we may even see it before WES in May!

WiFi is the key for Canada anyways, Rogers appears to be comfortable with WiFi devices in their line up at this point and GPS is not what I would consider to be a "money saver" and that's really what canadian users need at this point with data prices being what they are...so if I had a choice i'd be going for the WiFi over the GPS..if even just to save a few bucks..and I've already had the 8110 in my hands ;) in Canada lol..the GPS was cool, but it ain't gonna save me $$

If CDMA will be available then wouldn't that mean Telus Mobility would carry this 8330 Curve? If so, I'm Stoked!!!
