Summary: The Pearl 3G 9105 does exactly what it promises, offering all the features of a top-of-the-line BlackBerry in a small, candybar case. But BlackBerry devices are all about email and messaging, so we missed the full Qwerty keyboard of the Pearl 3G's siblings
Cons: BlackBerry OS is looking dated; app store is pricy and offers less choice than competitors; we miss the Qwerty keyboard; Web browser doesn't impress; small screen.
Summary: Although it’s definitely a refreshing look for the Pearl series, the design of the BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100 is nothing out of the ordinary since it borrows heavily from previous handsets. It builds upon RIM’s older Pearl family with an upgraded HVGA display, optical trackpad to replace the now-defunct trackball, a new 3.2 megapixel camera with flash, and is the first BlackBerry to host Wi-Fi 802.11n.As its name implies, this handset is the latest modernized version...
Summary: 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.
Excerpt: The latest addition to RIM’s popular smartphone Pearl line is the BlackBerry Pearl 3G and its two models the 9100 and the 9105. After a year of no new releases, the BlackBerry Pearl 3G was welcomed by the masses with open arms.
Conclusion: As the device is not yet released as I write this I will be guessing at the price per month on a contract but I would imagine it will be available from £20 per month. Sounds a pretty good deal if you ask me.
