  • Summary: Finally, a BlackBerry that appeals to the regular consumer. The Pearl is an excellent device that sacrifices none of RIM's famous email functionality while still managing to provide a compact and light form factor and multimedia capabilities.
  • Pros: Sleek and slim design, Multimedia features, Trackball navigation, Same email capabilities as previous BlackBerry's, Wider appeal
  • Cons: SureType can take some time to grasp, Keys quite small

BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: 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. It's certainly thin and suave getting plenty of oohs and arhhs from our collection of BlackBerry users we cobbled together to help us with this review. 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 by RIM.
  • Pros: Size, camera, BlackBerry interface
  • Cons: Screen a tad too small to read big emails on, keypad takes a little getting use to, no 3G

  • Summary: The latest BlackBerry has seen its weight slashed to 89g, as light as any standard mobile handset. Add the polished black exterior and it's bound to catch the eye.
