BlackBerry Pearl 8130 (Sprint)

LAPTOP Magazine
15 July 2008
  • Summary: Despite the lack of Wi-Fi capability, we highly recommend the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 for Sprint. This slim smart phone juggles multimedia and push e-mail well, and unlike the Verizon Wireless version of this handset, you can watch TV and download tunes on the go. If you want the same features but a full keyboard—and you don’t mind a little extra bulk—spend the extra $20 for Sprint’s BlackBerry Curve 8330.
  • Pros: Speedy data, Good call quality, Supports Sprint TV and Music store, Integrated GPS,
  • Cons: SureType takes getting used to, Video quality is pixelated and blurry, Cant listen to Sprint Music tunes while multitasking,

RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8130

PC Magazine
7 February 2008
  • Conclusion: RIM upgrades its successful Pearl for Sprint and Verizon customers. The 8130 gets some of the latest technology, including a 2-megapixel camera, GPS, and 3G data speeds, while keeping all of the original Pearl's virtues intact.
  • Pros: 3G data speeds. Enhanced media features and Web browser. Optional GPS. Capable camera.
  • Cons: SureType keyboard is largely a personal preference. No document editing. Verizon version lacks V Cast music and video support.
