BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 review: Back in style

 

Berries have been changing – in small steps, and big leaps. Sometimes stumbling, other times graceful and assertive. It seems the time was finally right for the Pearls' makeover too.

Quad-band GSM support ; Tri-band UMTS support with HSDPA (3.6Mbps) ; 2.25" 256K-color TFT display of 360x400 pixel resolution ; 624MHz CPU ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; Built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support ; 3.15 megapixel auto-focus camera with...

No email support or BlackBerry maps without a BlackBerry Internet Service account (plan) ; BlackBerry OS v 5.0 offers basic text-only submenus ; No FM radio ; No front facing video-call camera ; Glossy front is a fingerprint magnet

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 - Pocket-lint

 

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G - or 9105 on trial here - is RIM's latest model to hit the streets, revising the Pearl 8100 series of devices. It's a revision

Compact, all the connectivity you'd want, keyboard works well, excellent email service

Media keys sort of miss the point, screen a little small for the complete smartphone experience, browser a little slow, creaky backplate

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 is a great handset overall. It gives you the benefits of BlackBerry's connectivity, the great e-mail service and mainstream applications to give you a social mobile with communication at its core. This is packaged into a...

BlackBerry Pearl 3G (9105) First Look - Pocket-lint

 

BlackBerry's latest smartphone in the UK is an update to its BlackBerry Pearl range, bringing 3G connectivity and "more" computing power to the entry-level

Fast, great screen, optical trackpad, easy access media buttons, Wi-Fi n support

No QWERTY keyboard - but isn't that the point?

The decision to make this predictive only rather than yet another QWERTY smartphone is an interesting move. It one that clearly shows they are hoping will entice non-smartphone users, perhaps upgrading from Nokia or Sony Ericsson into the BlackBerry...

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105

 

The Pearl 3G is a BlackBerry without a QWERTY keyboard, but is that a good thing?

More pocket-friendly than other BlackBerrys ; Good build quality ; BlackBerry OS 5 on-board

Lacks iOS/Android smartphone chops ; High pixel-density screen ; Keypad can't beat a Qwerty

, so we wouldn’t like to use it longer term if we frequently had to bash out longer emails.

RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105, super-slim smartphone

 

Aimed successfully at a younger audience, but also with strong enterprise credentials.

On speedy Telstra NextG for $59 per month, it will be a winner.

RIM - BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105

 

RIM's BlackBerry Pearl has always been a successful handset. Its candybar format appeals to those without a lot of pocket space, and to those who don't really want the bells and whistles of a large screen ...

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is quite simply the best candybar smartphone in existence. It brings what is a very solid and functional line of devices up to date, and while we miss the quirky keyboard design we can live with the more standardised alternative.

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 Review

 

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 is one of a few new BlackBerry smart phones we should see this year. The 9105 is pretty unique though. As far as I am aware this is the first BlackBerry with a traditional style keypad. Yes, three letters on...
