Two new BlackBerry smartphones are coming right next month. The candybar duo Bold 9650 and Pearl 3G leaves the old-fashioned trackball in favor of the fancy trackpad.

BlackBerry Bold 9650 and Pearl 3G share common specs - hi-res screen, 3.2 megapixel camera, microSD card slot and the full connectivity package - Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G and Bluetooth.

The Pearl 3G supports the latest Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n standard, while the Bold 9650 relies on the previous b/g one. Still, the new Bold will be released in both GSM and CDMA versions, but the Pearl 3G won't be available for the CDMA users.

BlackBerry Bold 9650 (in CDMA obviously) will be available from Sprint USA starting next month. The Pearl 3G will hit Canada through Bell, TELUS and Rogers most probably the same time. Other market availability and pricing are yet to be announced.

As of now, RIM still don't have any official press info on both devices. Looking forward to it, we hope it's not some leak.

Yawn, Boring! Can you imagine a world where you just keep replicating yourself. Every where you turn it's you, but in another location.
