BlackBerry Pearl 3G review


Will a QWERTY-free, slimline BlackBerry make merry in the mass market?

BlackBerry email experience in a smaller handset ; Stylish design ; Out of the box' ease of use ; Improved web browser ; Good quality images, with numerous options for sending photos

Disappointing call quality ; Below-average 3G connectivity ; Small screen ; Troublesome text inputting ; Media player hidden away

A consumer-friendly smartphone that matches any BlackBerry in terms of features,with a keypad you'll love or hate but suffers from below-average network coverage and call quality.

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

BlackBerry Pearl 3G review


The handset has a lovely tactile feel thanks to rubber-clad edges, and is less broad overall than previous modles. But the BlackBerry Pearl 3G is smarter, 3G-capable and more polished than predecessors in RIM's entry-level phone range.

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is an excellent phone with some brilliant messaging, media and connectivity features. For us, however, the keyboard is a real drawback, especially since email and web address entry meant we routinely needed the full stop and @...

RIM Blackberry Pearl 3G review


A big upgrade from previous Pearl models, the Pearl 3G has fast wireless and data connections, but a numeric keypad and small screen let it down

BlackBerry8100 Pearl


With mobile email in the bag, BlackBerry has plunged headfirst into the heady world of multimedia and style with the sleek 8100 Pearl

Attractive svelte design. Easy to use and set up mobile email. Expandable memory

Average camera. Fiddly keyboard. Lack of 3G

BlackBerry Pearl 3G


BlackBerry's Pearl 3G is essentially a Curve 8900 in prettier wrapping, needless to say we were impressed.

All the features assosciated with a BlackBerry smartphone are packed into a smaller package

Some of the features are somewhat antiquated

BlackBerry Pearl 3G


The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is a compact addition to the BlackBerry stable. In fact, it's the smallest BlackBerry to date, and it's a slimmed-down version of the BlackBerry Bold 9700, packing in many of the same features we've come to expect from the king...

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is one of the fastest, most feature-packed candybar phones we’ve ever used. It's a great introductory model for those who can’t get enough of the skinny candybar form factor and don't mind an uncommon keyboard. BlackBerry Pearl...

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 Review


The BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 Is without doubt a good little phone. If you are currently a BlackBerry user I doubt very much if you will enjoy it as much as your current phone but for people looking to take the leap from a feature phone to a SmartPhone...

BlackBerry Pearl 3G Review by


The Pearl 3G is everything we've come to expect from a BlackBerry

Still the best mobile email system anywhere, super-fast internet connectivity, A-GPS, dedicated media controls and quality apps to download, plus a range of other features packed into a compact body

There's not autofit function for full web pages and the trackpad can be stubborn

The Pearl 3G is everything we've come to expect from a BlackBerry in a smart, phone-sized form.
