T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8120 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
15 April 2008
  • Summary: The BlackBerry Pearl 8120 is a welcome addition to T-Mobile's HotSpot @Home lineup of phones. We appreciated its clear quality and speedy surfing over Wi-Fi networks, improved user interface, and the higher-resolution camera. In general, we prefer the BlackBerry Curve from T-Mobile because it offers Wi-Fi calling plus a full-size keyboard, but that also costs $100 more.

  • Excerpt: The Pearl has a display of 65,000 colours at a resolution of 240 x 260 pixels. But such a small screen could give you eyestrain while viewing PDFs, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations.

  • Conclusion: A nice update to the wildly popular Pearl that should extend the line's life another year. RIM fixed the niggles we had with the first version-- namely moving the microSD card slot out from under the battery, tweaking SureType prediction, enhancing the web browser and adding WiFi. We'd have loved a GPS inside but given the Pearl's very small size, there may well be a limit to how many features RIM can squeeze in.
  • Pros: Great looks, incredibly light and quite small. Responsive and stable. The usual excellent push email is compelling if you're an email addict or messaging type. Bright and sharp display, excellent sound quality in call and for music playback through wired and Bluetooth stereo headphones. Has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack for music playback and the included headset is quite good too. Has WiFi, though the web browser isn't hugely faster when using WiFi (it probably hel...
  • Cons: Battery life could be better. Media player doesn't handle higher quality encoded video easily. Still no 3G. SureType may be hard to adjust to if you've been a full-QWERTY keyboard phone user.

PDA Reviews
30 April 2009
  • Excerpt: There was a time when RIM had to take in lot of criticisms on the looks and the other functionalities of the original version of BlackBerry pearl. The only application that its users were satisfied was with the email application. The device was fairly large and style conscious consumers would surely hesitate to buy one. [...
