BlackBerry Pearl Review

Digitaltrends
5 December 2007
  • Conclusion: While it looks sleek and fancy, there is no reason for a shrunken BlackBerry if it means shrunken text-input functionality. Still, if you don’t plan to compose long responses, but rather seek a little entertainment and have a desire to snap a candid picture to accompany your e-mail without looking...

  • Conclusion: We can certify that Blackberry Pearl 8100 is indeed revolutionary for its make – it has acquired a camera, a memory slot and a multimedia player. But what is equally revolutionary about it is the design – it is very small and thin for a smartphone, especially for one with a non-standard keyboard.
  • Pros: Small dimensions, slim profile, and stylish glossy black surface, microSD slot for memory, SureType keyboard, 2.5mm stereo jack, and miniUSB port
  • Cons: Ugly interface, Mediocre multimedia player and camera, The slot for memory is under the battery cover, Small service keys, Poor support for Bluetooth profiles

  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Pearl is RIM’s ideal device to bring fresh recruits to the “CrackBerry” camp with its sleek style and new-user friendly features. In this fashion conscious mobile market, looks alone will sell quite a few Pearls.
  • Pros: Great looking device that’s not just flashy by BlackBerry standards but good looking compared to any other phone on the market. The bright display is impressive. The email setup wizard enhances the tried and true BlackBerry push email experience, especially for new users and those whose devices a...
  • Cons: MicroSD slot is under the battery. Camera can’t shoot video. Bluetooth profiles are limited. The video player supports a small set of formats.

RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

CNET
23 October 2006
  • Summary: The Pearl is the first consumer-grade BlackBerry and it certainly looks the part. You should steer clear if you want a smart phone with every flashy feature, but if you've been tempted by a BlackBerry before and felt the devices were too chunky, staid or geeky looking, the Pearl might be ideal
  • Pros: Tidy design; memory expansion; music playback; easy mobile email.
  • Cons: No Wi-Fi; 2.5mm headset jack; smallish screen; average camera; memory expansion slot under battery.

  • Pros: The Pearl is slim, lightweight and beautifully designed and we love the eponymous trackball.
  • Cons: If fast internet browsing and receiving email with large attachments is crucial, the lack of Wi-Fi and 3G might alienate some business types.

BlackBerry Pearl 8100

2 January 2008
  • Excerpt: The Blackberry Pearl, also known as the 8100, is the first BlackBerry aimed squarely at consumers. The phone sports a built-in camera, music/video players and a bright 240-by-260 color screen. Unlike its suit and tie predecessors, the Pearl is very thin and fits nicely into a pocket.
