Today, RIM kicked off their annual WES by introducing two new Blackberrys, the Bold 9650 and the Pearl 3G.

The Bold 9650 is a device that’s been promised since last summer and though now under the Bold name, it is essentially a Blackberry Tour with an optical trackpad and Wi-Fi. Everything else is the same including Dual-Band networks for world roaming, a 3.2 megapixel camera, a 2.44 inch HVGA screen and 512MB of built in flash memory. Though not too exciting of a release, it wasn’t disappointing either, considering it was anticipated for awhile.

The Pearl 3G is a bit more exciting, considering it’s a more fresh update to the widely popular Pearl. Its design has been face-lited and looks much more modern, but still resembles previous-generation models with its very pocketable size, measuring in at only 4.25 inches tall and 1.96 inches wide. Also like previous models, the Pearl 3G comes with the SureType keyboard, but there will actually be two configurations, the 9100 will have a 20-key SureType and the 9105 will only have a 14-key SureType. Again, this device is now shipped with the optical trackpad instead of the trackball for navigation, and operates on the new 5.0 Blackberry OS, GPS and 3G (obviously). This device definitely sees a successful future when widely released.
