Found 29th Jan 2009Made hot 30th Jan 2009
just went to google shopping and it came up with:-

Blackberry 8120 Pearl Smartphone Sim Free ... £249.47 - Elite Gadgets UK
Blackberry 8120 Titanium £265.19 - Tech Depot
BlackBerry Pearl 8120 £239.86 - Handtec

------------------------
Orange's business customers might be feeling the recession pinch, which might explain why the France-Telecom owned company has decided to sell its first PAYG Blackberry phone.

The smartphone on offer, an Orange Exclusive Indigo Blackberry Pearl 8120 model, is not the top of the range model but at £145, it is a rather good deal, especially as you can add email and internet browsing for only £5 a month (ed: No details about any restrictions regarding using Internet without topping up).

The device comes with a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and media player plus it offers built in access to Facebook, Flickr, Myspace and a host of online services.

The current credit crunch is definitely having an impact on the audience RIM is looking to target. The traditional more lucrative "Square Mile" business has been melting away as financial services slashed their employees (and their Blackberries).

According to Ian Fogg, principal analyst at Forrester, RIM could be looking for a younger but less cash-flushed audience, hence the PAYG offer.

Pocket-link also reports that the Carphone Warehouse will also be offering the Blackberry Pearl on a PAYG basis for £150. You will be able to choose, as from tomorrow (Friday 30th), between the Silver Blackberry Pearl 8110 or the Pink 8120 model.

(£5 for free internet access)

I'm confused - if it costs £5 then it can't be free. Ipay £40 for a free tank of petrol every couple of weeks

According to their website it is not "unlimited" :whistling:

Academic really as you need 3g signal to connect, which on orange and t-mobile is a rarity. Great price though.

Blackberry doesnt need 3G just bog standard GPRS.

The Pearl is a great phone.

its a pre-order tho, still a couple week before you actually get it.

Be advised both handsets are not 3G but don't be concerned about downloads are slower. As data downloaded will be compressed data via Blackberry BIS services or using Blackberry PAYG services through mobile network operator.

One thing to remember is that Orange network always latched their handsets to their network.

Also for those who use RIM Blackberry handsets who decide to pass on their handsets to friends & families or decide to sell on must ensure they de-register the Blackberry handsets first with the mobile network operator.
