BlackBerry Pearl (T-Mobile)

 

Research In Motion (RIM) throws away its suits and ties with the Pearl, a delicious little multimedia smartphone that—surprise!—just happens to be a BlackBerry. Slimmer than a closed RAZR, it is the first BlackBerry to ship with a camera and...

First BlackBerry with camera, music and video player. Sharp screen. Very pretty

Tiny keys. Music and video players lack navigation and good PC sync options ; Watch the RIM BlackBerry Pearl Video Review

The first multimedia BlackBerry plays music, takes photos, and still handles e-mail with aplomb.

That is quite a bold statement. I have used pretty much every Palm OS and Windows Mobile Smartphone out there over the past few years. If I haven't tested and reviewed them, I have played with them in the stores. There are some SmartPhones I have loved...

The White Blackberry Pearl is available only from T-Mobile for US$149.00 after rebates and with activation at www.tmobile.com. I did find it for cheaper on Amazon and at Wirefly.

Full Blackberry functionality in a stylishly compact smartphone package

Size, easy to use and set up, trackball navigation, excellent Blackberry interface

Lacks 3G, Screen not ideal for larger web page/email viewing/reading, SureType keypad function takes some getting used to

Compact and stylish, the Pearl puts full Blackberry functionality in your shirt pocket. And yet the compromises forced upon it may not be to your liking. That said, it works well enough, and it's sure to be high on the wants list of those who...

Mass market users may not like the lacklustre camera and media player, but for a business user wanting the power of BlackBerry in a lightweight phone form factor, the Pearl is a little gem.

Verizon Wireless Blackberry Pearl

 

I got my Blackberry Pearl at a Verizon Wireless store about eight months ago. I was attracted to the phone because it was cute, slender, pink, and was able to access the internet on it. The phone makes calls just about as
