[No Text - Click To Edit]Recently, some representatives from Verizon stopped by the TechRepublic offices to gives us a sneak peak at several new phones the company is introducing during the holiday season. One of the phones we looked at was the Blackberry Pearl. The Blackberry Pearl is familiar to many users as a cell phone / e-mail reader. We should get a good look at the Verizon Wireless version of the Blackberry Pearl before the end of the year. Until then, we snuck in a few snapshots of the this phone for a First Look Gallery.
