Rogers Launches BlackBerry Pearl 3G, Stores Still Awaiting Shipments

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G has finally been "officially" released by Rogers. Despite having been up on the Best Buy website for little over a week now, Rogers has sent off the information to employees and retailers letting them know they can start filling channels with the device. So basically, yes it's on the way but as of yet stores do not have the device to hand out to those waiting. Pricing rolls in as expected $49.99 on a 3-year contract with voice and data or $449.99 sans contract. It'll likely take a few days before stores get the devices but it's great to finally hear something definitive come from somewhere. Anyone gonna be grabbing one?
