I walked into one of the Cingular stores in San Francisco today and it was quite busy. Obviously, the holiday season is partly the reason for this, and you might say the Treo 680, but it is also the BlackBerry Pearl.

It seems to be identical to the BlackBerry Pearl from T-mobile, of course with the branding of Cingular. In addition, it supports the Cingular Push to Talk service which pretty much transforms your Cingular cell phone into a walkie-talkie. Here are some more details about the Push To Talk service if you’re intrigued:
If you’ve been waiting for the BlackBerry Pearl from Cingular, it is here, and a great holiday present if you need a good excuse for getting it!
By the way, you can refer to the “BlackBerry Pearl in 6 minutes” video if you’re interested in seeing the BlackBerry Pearl in action (the model used in the video is the BlackBerry Pearl from T-Mobile).
