  • Summary: RIM did a lot to bring the smartphone to a mass market with the introduction of the BlackBerry Pearl a few years ago.

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.
  • 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 sta...
  • 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.

Review: RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8120

Wired
5 March 2008
  • Excerpt: What RIM’s aversion to 3G is we’ll never figure out. With version 8120, RIM updates its beloved Pearl smartphone with Wi-Fi but still omits a 3G radio and, oddly, GPS, the latter of which can be found on both the 8110 and 8130.
  • Pros: Camera upgraded to 2-megapixels plus flash and video capability. Software is somewhat better at word detection and correction; even works well with odd, multi-word URLs. Crazy loud speakerphone. Very sensitive mic offered exceptional call quality in our tests. Very fast battery charging, and near...
  • Cons: Pearl keyboard still not for everyone. Lack of 3G is absurd. No GPS.

  • Pros: Another slinky, thin-format BlackBerry, adding Wi-Fi into the Pearl mix.
  • Cons: You may not like the quirky SureType data-entry system and there's still no 3G.
