  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: The first thing you notice about the BlackBerry Pearl 3G is that it's incredibly svelte and slim, with a respectable 3.2 megapixel camera with flash, delightfully responsive buttons, and a solid back panel. The 2.25-inch screen is also incredibly sharp for its size at 360×400, with great viewing angles. The Pearl 3G’s performance also matches the Bold 9700. It uses the same processor, has 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS, and is surprisingly speedy for its size and loads pages snapp...
  • Cons: The battery life is shorter on the BlackBerry Pearl 3G: you’ll only get a day’s use out of it rather than a whole weekend. And not every app runs on it yet due to the unusual screen ratio: useful tools like Google Maps and Sync, Facebook and Foursquare all run fine, but Evernote and PayPal do not. There’s one other big change – the fiddly 0-9 keyboard. Existing Pearl owners will be surprised and possibly annoyed by this, having been used to two letters per key.

  • Summary: The beautifully built BlackBerry Pearl 3G smartphone could be a valiant attempt to attract buyers more accustomed to old-school texting via an alpha-numeric keypad.

  • Excerpt: This is the smallest BlackBerry device yet, largely thanks to the SureType keyboard, and it looks great.

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 review

Pocket Lint
24 May 2010
  • Conclusion: 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 slim and elegant device that will be as at home in the hands of a texting teenager as it will in the pocket of your finest business suit. It comes in a range of colours too, as recent handsets have.
  • Pros: Compact, all the connectivity you'd want, keyboard works well, excellent email service
  • Cons: Media keys sort of miss the point, screen a little small for the complete smartphone experience, browser a little slow, creaky backplate

Test: RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G (Handy)

CHIP Online
6 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Das Pearl 3G punktet im Test mit kompakten Abmessungen, einer ordentlichen Ausstattung und guter Verarbeitung. Performance und multimediale Leistungen können sich sehen lassen, liegen aber nicht auf dem Niveau anderer Handys dieser Preisklasse. Weniger gefielen uns der trotz WLAN-n und HSDPA lahme Browser, die seitlich liegende Klinkenbuchse und der Verzicht auf QWERTZ-Tasten. Auch die Sprechzeit verdient wenig Lob.
  • Pros: Platzsparende Ausmaße, Alle aktuelle Datenraten, Gute Verarbeitung
  • Cons: Hoher Preis, Surfen nur mit Handbremse, Mäßige Akku-Laufzeit

Schon getestet: Blackberry Pearl 3G

CNET
14 June 2010
  • Summary: Mit dem Pearl 3G 9105 bringt Research in Motion die kleine Blackberry-Reihe auf den Stand der Technik. An Bord sind UMTS mit HSPA, WLAN nach dem neuen n-Standard und ein hochauflösendes 2,2-Zoll-Display. Wir haben getestet, ob sich das Gerät trotz kleiner Tastatur als Mini-Messenger eignet.
  • Pros: flaches, gut reagierendes Touchpad, attraktiv und klein, hervorragende Anbindung an E-Mails und Social Networks, hochauflösendes Display, gute Kamera, dedizierte Tasten für den MP3-Player
  • Cons: Betriebssystem und Oberfläche wirken veraltet, App Store ist teuer und hat weniger Auswahl als Android & iPhone, keine echte QWERTZ-Tastatur, mäßiger Webbrowser, kleines Display
