I love my blackberry pearl and it looks great too!

Excerpt: I was considering getting the Palm Centro vs. the Blackberry Pearl, and the Pearl caught my eye considering overall design and its function as an organizer. Since I already knew a few people with Centros, I decided to be original and get the Pearl. I've had it for a little more than a week now and I absolutely love it. I'm bad with time management, so I put all the things I need to do & it helps me get organized.
The BlackBerry Pearl 8110 is good with some maddening quirks.

Excerpt: I got a refurbished BlackBerry Pearl 8110 from AT&T Wireless a couple of months ago and overall have been very satisfied with its usefulness -- in large part because my employer runs a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, so I get all the benefits of BlackBerry's famous push email service both for work and personal email accounts (the latter via the BlackBerry Internet Service).
Excerpt: I have had a several Blackberrys and I loved that the Pearl 8110 is a quite a bit smaller than the other models. It has two letters on each key, which can be a little tricky, especially when entering passwords, and when guessing the words I was typing in a message. But I like that the numbers are centered on the keypad, whereas other Blackberrys have it on the left-hand side of the keypad.
Excerpt: I got my Blackberry Pearl 8110 about two weeks ago. So far, I really enjoy this phone. There are a few things I would change, however. I'll start with the cons: I don't like how the menu only has a few options for how it's set up. I liked having my picture of choice as my background on my last phone. On this phone, to do that, I have to have the icons in an L-shape.
Excerpt: overall i really liked this phone when i had it. i loved the fact that it was tiny and fit anywhere. only thing that wasnt so good was the internet web browser. other than that realy liked that phone.
Summary: i have been using this phone for the past 4 months in south africa, and it works perfect on our networks. the gps, graphic and internet capabilities are brilliant to say the least. the only problem is when you are changing the SIM Card, the slot tends to be too tight hence taking out your SIM Card can be a mission otherwise i give it a thumbs up!
Excerpt: I just got a Blackberry Pearl and it is by far the greatest investment I have made in any phone! Not only does this product do everything a normal cell phone is capable of, but it can do tons more. It has features like built in GPS system, task manager, calculator, application downloads, music library, video and picture capabilities, and more! This is literally like having a mini computer right at your finger tips.
Excerpt: This is the second Pearl I've had and so far no problems at all with the unit. I've found it to be easy to type on and now struggle if I'm presented with anything other than a blackberry to type on when out of the office. The only small downside relates to signal strength at times being poor but that's more the carrier than the phone. Personally I prefer the smaller pearl sized phone than the curve sized opinions.
Excerpt: Sorry Bruce but I have to disagree with you on this phone. It is a great phone and I personally found it very easy to use the keyboard. No, it is not as easy as a full qwerty keyboard but it is MUCH easier than most phones. I got used to the predictive text pretty quickly and from then on it was great. Super phone for me.
