BlackBerry Pearl 8100

 

With racks and racks of iPhone boxes sitting on the shelves of our local Carphone Warehouse, casting "come hither" looks in our general direction, we thought we'd be wise to check out the competition first

Small and light, Great email handling, Free PocketMac software

Clumsy menus, Slow web browsing, Poor storage capacity

Nice, but the iPhone would eat it for breakfast

BlackBerry Pearl 8100 review

 

Having second thoughts before you shell out for an iPhone?

Small and light ; Great email handling ; Free PocketMac software

Clumsy menus ; Slow web browsing ; Poor storage capacity

Nice, but the iPhone would eat it for breakfast

BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone - Pocket-lint

 

Where the phone will succeed is those looking for more messaging, but not prepared to go for the rather large full Qwerty keyboard option already offered

Size, camera, BlackBerry interface

Screen a tad too small to read big emails on, keypad takes a little getting use to, no 3G

The BlackBerry Pearl is the company's most consumer-focused model yet, showing that the company is keen to take operations like Nokia and Sony Ericsson head on.

Blackberry 8100 Pearl review

 

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

The BlackBerry clan finally sheds its business straightjacket and brings a dash of style and fun to the staid world of mobile messaging

Blackberry Pearl 8100g Review

 

We have a couple of Blackberry devices to review this month, namely the Curve and the Pearl. To start with we take a look at the Blackberry Pearl which is ...

The Blackberry Pearl is an attractive device that essentialy puts it in league with designs from Nokia and Motorola. What it lacks in features it makes up for with its brilliant email technology - which is one of the best in the market.

BlackBerry 8100 Pearl

 

The classic design of BlackBerry handhelds is unmistakable.

Fantastic svelte design, scroll ball is an improvement over the wheel, built-in camera, plus email and internet access

PocketMac doesn’t currently work with it so there’s no syncing, scroll ball takes some getting used to

This is undoubtedly the jewel of the BlackBerry range. The candybar design has come a long way since RIM’s original device, which was far broader and took up the whole width of your palm. This sleek black number weighs just 89g and can properly be...
