Advantages: new features, capable to handle new BB OS, Small
Disadvantages: Screen a bit small for my taste
Ok since I was in Panama, as other reviews also bought this phone over there for my wife.. and lets talk a bit about the phone and its features...
in addition to its new cool impressive design, compact and elegant, this new smartphone is a powerful BlackBerry 3G with high-performance features and capabilities including high-class messaging and social networks like other Smartphones of course... and the BlackBerry email solution for an industry leader that people love BB messaging.
It is as powerful and compact. With less than two inches wide (50 mm) and weighing only 3.3 ounces (93grams) it has access to high speed 3G networks (UMTS / HSDPA), Wi-Fi (b / g / n) and GPS, along with a powerful processor which shows impressive images on a clear high resolution not so big screen anyway... also incorporates an optical track pad (this is the best feature IMO, Im so jealous that this phone is been used by my wife .. Im still using my Bold9000 which its trackball is already Foxed! it needs to be replaced) anyway... lets keep talking about the Pearl so with its track pad is excellent and convenient for navigation, also has dedicated keys for volume and media, it comes with a 3.2 MP camera with flash to improve image quality, and supports up to 32 GB of personal content so you can can your mp3s or videos in it.
the smartphone also incorporates a lot of functionality and looks and feels great pretty handful...of course that with the BB messaging allows you to stay connected to all your contacts and keep in touch with them to maximize your lifestyle both at work and personal.
The main features of the new 3G smartphone BlackBerry Pearl includes:
Sleek candybar that measures 4.25 "x 1.96" x 0.52 "(108mm x 50 mm x 13.3 mm) and weighs 3.3 oz (93 grams), 624 Mhz processor with 256 MB of Memory, High resolution screen of 360x400 (238 ppi), Optical trackpad that makes it fast and smooth navigation, and a comfortable keyboard that lets you write fast and accurate. Mediaplayer for video, pictures and music (playing music lasts up to 30 hours), and dedicated media keys built into the top of the smartphone- 3.2 MP camera with zoom, autofocus, flash and video recording, Built-in GPS for location based applications and geo-positioning of photos also has Wi-Fi (802.11 b / g / n) - is the First BlackBerry smartphone to support 'n ' networks it also comes with Card slot microSD / SDHD memory card supporting up to 32 GB of memory... a lot for my wife.. she doesnīt use at all lol
The phone also features including voice activated dialing, speakerphone, and Bluetooth (2.1) with support for hands-free headsets, stereo headsets, car kits, including systems that support the Bluetooth standard MAP (Message Access Profile) and other Bluetooth Accessories
also noticed that with smartphone comes with the software - BlackBerry App World Access, which provides a broad and growing catalog of mobile applications designed specifically for BB then we have the BBerry Media Sync to synchronize photos and music from iTunes and Windows Media Player from smartphone in your PC / MAC.
the Network Support tri-band UMTS / HSDPA and quad-band EDGE / GPRS / GSM depending on your carrier of course... my wife is using with Orange and since I got it Unlocked so It could be wearing any sim card we are both using Orange now...
Also has a removable and rechargeable battery mAhr 1150 that gives approximately "5 taking hours on 3G" networks but! if you are a Twitter facebook and other Social network nuts like my wife you can drain the battery in less time than that!!! is the only thing I dont like about these smartphones all drain your battery pretty quickly...
now talking a bit about the OS this Pearl 3G comes with the BlackBerry OS 5 installed and you are ready to be upgraded to the BlackBerry operating system 6! but my wife havenīt let me do this to her phone yet!.
The (OS) BlackBerry 6 is the new operating system for BlackBerry seems its not out officially yet but you can find on the net the beta versions... which Iīd really like to try out.
This smartphone is available in two models and several bright colors. The Model 9100 has QWERTY keyboard with 20 keys and the 9105 model has a traditional phone keypad 14 keys which is the one we got.
Both models have the SureType software that auto complete words, allowing you to send text messages faster... personally I dont use this option because always messes up what you really want to write.. .
now an important thing to recall video recording needs a microSD card, which can be sold separately
also the synchronization of your pics is currently available only for Windows-based PCs kinda sucky for MAc users
the smartphone is awesome the OS is really fast, connection is good also the signal and Internet Speed is pretty fast... faster than my old bold 9000, the audio is clean also speakers sound pretty good and loud
the screen size and keys are smaller of what Im used to but well my wife says its great so be it!... also the Camera is better than my Bold9000 which is outdated and with 2MP ... the Camera takes really cool pictures and with great quality,,, Id say like reaaaally great quality compared to my phone :S
so my final score would be 4.5/5 (Im giving 5 stars )
If you planning to buy latest BB and dont want to have a Big phone like Iphone for example... and need to stay connected with all your BB contacts this phone is for you ;)
Summary: Great smartphone with all excellent Blackberry features and APPS
