Research In Motion on Thursday introduced its latest BlackBerry phone called “Pearl,” which takes a more stylish approach to handset design in attempt to appeal to both business users and consumers alike. Not much bigger than Motorola’s iconic RAZR, the Pearl is BlackBerry’s smallest phone to date.

In order to cut down on size, the handset’s keyboard has been shrunk in half by assigning two letters to each button. The Pearl is also much slimmer than its predecessors, taking a key from Motorola’s playbook and resulting in a phone that is only 0.57 inches thick and weighs just 3.1 ounces.
