I don’t think that I am going out on a limb when I say that there is as much if not more buzz around the BlackBerry Pearl as than any other BlackBerry to date, including the BlackBerry 8700. Therefore, I don’t think that it is too much of a stretch to say that the BlackBerry Pearl will become the best selling BlackBerry yet.

To be totally honest, however, it won’t be the low $199 price or the fact that the Pearl’s target demographic is the biggest to date for RIM alone that will take sales of the first CameraBerry to record highs. RIM has decided to give their next generation devices names and they will be the same regardless of the carrier, unlike there current practice of specific letter designations for certain carriers. Unless the hardware on the BlackBerry Pearl has more bugs than a Treo and the software is less reliable than Windows Mobile, RIM can’t help but make a killing off of this device.

Does anyone care to bet against me?
