We still don’t have a definitive date on when the Cingular BlackBerry Pearl will be released, we believe just after Thanksgiving, however, Steve from BlackBerry Cool says his Cingular rep has at least confirmed that it will have Push-to-Talk.

PTT is the walkie-talkie like feature made famous by Nextel.

I like the idea of PTT on a cell phone, but, I have some reservations about it showing up on my BlackBerry. Have you ever worked with someone who had the annoying habit of sending you an email and showing up to your desk to ask you if you’ve read before it even gets delivered to your inbox?

This behaviour may make me disable the PTT on my BlackBerry. That is of course, if I had PTT.
