I have been saying for week or so that I thought the BlackBerry Pearl would be available from Cingular by the Day after Thanksgiving. It looks like a couple of other bloggers are jumping on the bandwagon.

The folks over at Gizmodo say that November 17th is the date based on a comment by Cingular’s customer support. Russell Shaw from BBHub says he is absolutely convinced that Cingular’s BlackBerry Pearl will be in stores by next Friday.

I don’t have any insiders feeding me info, however, next Friday November 17th makes sense. It gives a full week before Black Friday for the Pearl to hit the shelves and let consumers know that the device is out. It gives Cingular a full week to market the heck out of the Pearl and get ready to offer that $50 rebate just in time for the biggest shopping day of the year.
