RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
13 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Pearl 3G is a great upgrade from a texting phone, but you're paying a lot for a device with no touch screen or QWERTY keyboard, and relatively few apps.
  • Pros: Svelte and stylish. Lightweight. Great voice quality. Responsive interface. Excellent music playback.
  • Cons: SureType keyboard isn't for everyone. OS feels old. Few third-party apps. Too expensive given the feature set.

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100

28 May 2011
  • Summary: The RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G is a great little global smartphone if you can deal with the unusual keyboard.
  • Pros: The RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G is a slim and compact smartphone with features like Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G support. It has external media keys and the optical touch pad felt easy to use.
  • Cons: The SureType keyboard isn't for everyone, and we did find the media keys to be a little hard to press. Picture quality isn't as good as we hoped.

Blackberry 9100: a brief review

Mobile Review
19 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Sit down comfortably, because any discussion of a new Blackberry device is not so simple and I would not like to offer you just a dry account of specs and features. Feelings and emotions will do much better. I like that RIM can still produce unique smartphones both in terms of features (which is rather illusory) and design. As I want to share my emotions with you the manufacturer must have had an intention to put this emotion in a new Pearl too.

REVIEW: Rogers BlackBerry Pearl 9100

6 August 2010
  • Conclusion: With all the new phones being released this summer by Rogers it’s no surprise that this one attracts many teens, especially with the low price tag, it’s a steal for parents. While it may not be the hottest BlackBerry out, It does what it’s suppose to do. Messaging on a BlackBerry is a breeze, camera is superb, and the 3G speed helps out a lot. If you don’t got money for the Bold 9700 or Curve 9300 or just don’t like the size. You can be sure that you’ll enjoy this phone.

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100 has similar specifications to RIM's flagship BlackBerry Bold 9700 but in a more compact design.

  • Summary: We were impressed that RIM's BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100 offers the same capabilities and functions found on more expensive BlackBerry smartphones. The trade off comes in the form of a smaller, pocketable form factor, resulting in a cramped keyboard, small display and flimsy build quality.
  • Pros: Fast to navigate, same capabilities as more expensive BlackBerry handsets, impressive specifications, SureType software is excellent, unbeatable e-mail service, optical trackpad
  • Cons: Less sturdy than RIM's Curve and Bold series, glossy keyboard is slippery and keys are cramped, small display, awkwardly mounted media controls

BlackBerry 9100

2 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Es el teléfono ideal para quienes desean estar comunicados permanentemente de distintas maneras como el correo electrónico, mensajes de texto y mensajería instantánea, sin tener que usar un equipo robusto y serio. La cámara y el receptor completan la oferta de comunicación dejando un par de detalles por cubrir.
  • Pros: Diseño atractivo, tiene teclas de acceso rápido a la reproducción de música y es muy ligero.
  • Cons: La cámara podría tener mejor calidad y la pantalla es algo pequeña.
