Rogers BlackBerry 9100 gets unboxed, comes with OS 5.0.0.629

Looks like our friends over at The Cellular Guru have got their hands on the upcoming Rogers BlackBerry Pearl 9100. You’ll see in the pics below they did a quick unboxing and discovered it comes with OS 5.0.0.629. We’re still waiting to see what’s different about this version but honestly we just want to see this new Pearl released.

A couple days ago Future Shop put the Rogers Pearl on their site for the following prices: $79.99 on a 3-year and the no contract price of $449.99.

    this phone sould go for 9.99 on 3 year and 79.99 on 2 year.. i mean 79.99 is a lot of money when u are forced to sign a 3 year both voice and data contract.. average voice plan is 40 bucks plus the 2.58 SAF (now called GRRF) and another 40 bucks for data value pack.. thats 82.58/month times 36 month = 2879.88 (3 grand).. and thats 3 grand only if the customer never goes over their day time limites or does any extra pay on their phone like ring tone etc.. so in return for a guaranteed 3 grand.. the canadian telcos should offer high end phones at 0 – 50 bucks the most. if you log into the orange uk website.. they give the iphone 3gs 32gb free.. on 18 month contract… there has to be a middle gound here.. 1st they get u with the 3 year deal then they force u to also sign a data contract and they still charge steeply for the hardware.. i net anything that rogers is not paying more than $150 per unit for this new pearl.. ;)

    That is why Rogers is called Robbers.

    The only way to get a fair deal in Canada (on a phone of any description) is to buy an unlocked phone online, or to purchase a locked phone in Europe and then pay the unlocking fee. Cheap Smartphones (new and refubrished)are available at EBay as well (from reliable sellers)
