Over the passed day or so, I’ve been taking a look at various smartphones that target individual consumers across various networks and one thing that I noticed was that T-Mobile’s original BlackBerry Pearl 8100 is much less expensive than everything else out there.

The device itself, with a two year service plan, costs under a $150 bucks after a mail-in rebate which is on par with the lowest of the low on devices that can be considered smart phones. Then there is the $9.99 unlimited data plan. Well, that is just unheard of.

T-Mobile’s BlackBerry Pearl is not only a very inexpensive option for a smartphone, but, is an attractive option as a feature phone as well.

I think that the the “Old School BlackBerry Pearl” will do very well this holiday season.
