"With new, enhanced features including support for our Hotspot @Home mobile service, Wi-Fi browsing and a two-megapixel camera, we expect the popularity of the BlackBerry Pearl to soar."

Looks like it supports the 8gig micro sd! Does this mean its coming with 4.5 loaded already! Would most. def be nice.

I'm thinking of buying the Pearl 8120 for Tmobile. Does it take Micro SDHC??? If so how much is it expandable to??

I called Tmobile and ofcourse they know nothing of the phone other than reading of the scripts that they have (i can do i myself)

I want to know if this phone takes Micro SDHC and how big of a card (of SDHC). Anyone thanks :)

yes BlackBerry Pearl 8120 takes Micro SDHC cards (Micro MiniSDHC), and if you still dont know what i'm talking about then just go to this link and you'll can see it for your-self, and amount of memory is up how to much you want. This SDHC card has 6GB memory for $80 as of June 4, 2008.
