T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8120

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.
  • Pros: Wi-Ficalling capability, Superior battery life, 3.5mm stereo jack, Includes instant messaging clients, ,
  • Cons: Some calls didnt connect, Browser doesnt automatically switch between EDGE and Wi-Fi, Mediocre camcorder, No GPS,

BlackBerry Pearl 8120

28 March 2008
  • 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.

Noah's BlackBerry Pearl-8120 Titanium review

2 January 2008
  • Summary: This latest wave of Pearls improves upon the originals in small but meaningful ways, and T-Mobile’s 8120 might be the most appealing of the bunch to mainstream consumers.  Beyond the improved keyboard, camera, and headphone jack, T-Mob added WiFi support for data services and HotSpot@Home calling, and made the Pearl perhaps the best H@H handset in their current lineup.
  • Pros: Integrated WiFi for Web, Email, and HotSpot@Home UMA Calling; Trackball is easy to use; Integrated IM Clients; Second-to-None Push Email; 2MP Camera with Flash; 3.5 mm Headphone Jack; Compact Size

  • 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. [...

13 August 2008
  • Excerpt: The Blackberry 8120 is a stylish smartphone that scores in many aspects. Be it the functional design, the business functionality or the multimedia features, Blackberry Pearl 8120 is definitely a good phone. Every feature as well as every part of the design of the phone has been well-thought of before assimilating the final product. For a great phone like this, things could have definitely been better with 3G connectivity.
