MobileOffice compatible phone

Hello folks,

I know I'm not exactly in the right forum, but that was intentional. A lot more new 5 owners than 7 owners and the question relates to all new BMWs.

I just took delivery last week of a Sept 6th, 2010 built 750Li. It has the Combox controller (option 6VC) and I'm able to get most of the new features working (Bluetooth streaming, cover art, iPod controlled with a single cable (no need for Y-cable even though I have one anyhow sitting in the glove box).

What I can't seem to figure out is what model Blackberry's are compatible with MobileOffice functionality? I read originally that the Pearl 3G is and that the phone must be running 6.0 OS.

Firstly, has anyone tried this phone with the newest BMW feature and does it work as advertised?

Does anyone have any idea if other models are going to be supported? I hate the Pearl and do not want to go out and buy one. I wouldn't mind buying a Bold 9700 (I'm on AT&T) or worst case, Torch 9800, but I don't want the Pearl 3G. I currently have a Bold 9000 that is near its end of life. I tried a Bold 9700 running 6.0 (hacked) and that did not work.

Anyone have any ideas? Would be much appreciated.
