For those in the office who persevered with the BlackBerry Pearl's innovative/annoying (delete as applicable) two-keys-on-one SureType thing, the reward might be just around the corner.Rumours have surfaced on the BlackBerry,er, grapevine that the first Wi-Fi RIM emailer will be an updated Pearl, due out this Autumn.
