We first told you that Research In Motion was working on a low-grade Pearl. At first we didn’t have many details other than the fact that the device would only have 12 keys. Then we supplied a patent we found, which showed the ornamental design of a pearl with a small traditional keypad like we previously described.

Now, for even more proof, we’ve found another patent to describe the design of the traditional keypad. We have also heard that this device isn’t too far away and there are many prototypes and even “clear bin” editions floating around.
