Looking for a mobile phone that combines the power of push email with the looks and lightweight usability of a standard mobile? The Blackberry Pearl 8110 could be the answer.

BlackBerry Pearl 8110 review

 

Does adding GPS to RIM's Pearl 8110 make it an iPhone killer?

Solid GPS solution ; Packed with features ; Beloved by systems admins

Software subscription needed for GPS ; No help given to Mac users ; Not a joy to use

A solid GPS solution, but that’s the only reason to pick it over Apple’s more polished iPhone.

BlackBerry Pearl 8110 smartphone - Pocket-lint

 

The BlackBerry Pearl 8110 swaps the Wi-Fi for GPS when compared to the Pearl 8120 we reviewed back in November 2007. But should you choose GPS over Wi-Fi?

GPS, simple to use, email on the move, easy to set-up and customise

Keyboard might not suit some

The real thing that sells BlackBerry to us, and this comes back to data costs again, is how easy it is to do things: whether you video something funny and email it to your friends, or take a picture of a new product at a sales conference and email it...

RIM BlackBerry 8110 review

 

BlackBerry is best known for its business email handsets, but the 8110 - also known as the Pearl - is more of an all-rounder.

Smartphones have gone from being corporate toys to office essentials for many workers, with internet access and the ability to pick up and to compose emails being critical elements. BlackBerry maker Research In Motion deserves much of the credit for...

We found the Vodafone interface slightly less straightforward than the standard BlackBerry one, mainly because we wanted to lock the keypad and prevent accidental calls. Email support is superior and the mapping capabilities are also strong. The...

BlackBerry Pearl 8110

 

The 8110 isn't so much an updated model as it's virtually identical to the previously released Pearl 8120, excluding the fact that the 8110 includes a GPS chipset, but is without Wi-Fi.

Well designed and lightweight ; SureType predictive messaging is excellent ; Integrated GPS

No 3G or HSDPA ; No widescreen for video ; Poor quality camera ; No Wi-Fi

BlackBerry 8110 Pearl

 

Introducing the BlackBerry 8110 Pearl, so called for the pearl-like trackball in the centre of the handset. Couple this with HTC's Diamond and you've got the makings of an expensive smartphone necklace!

Surfing the net wherever and whenever with that lovely trackball

It's lacking 3G, and that two-meg camera's a bit stingy

The BlackBerry Pearl puts the entire interweb in your pocket and keeps you in touch to boot.

The Pearl combines Blackberry's traditional business-centric features with a consumer-friendly mobile phone. The new Pearl has an integrated GPS system, a 2 megapixel camera, and several other small improvements from it predecessor.

Now the Pearl’s successor has arrived: the Blackberry Pearl 8110. The new Pearl has an integrated GPS system, a 2MP camera, and several other small improvements. But the cellphone industry has changed a great deal in the past two years. New-generation...

The satnav is a nice touch, but the 8110’s main selling point is still its style and email skills. Come on, it's been the main selling point for BlackBerry since its inception! BlackBerry 8110 Pearl is tagged with Blackberry, GPS device and e-mail....
