AT&T BlackBerry 9100 Pearl 3G
Svelte and stylish. Lightweight. Great voice quality. Responsive interface. Excellent music playback.
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.
Updated & modern design, Nice looking display, Great battery life
Much better display and trackpad, Low price, SureType still a great solution for a small phone, Good (though not great) call quality.
Flat, responsive trackpad; small size; good social-networking apps with more available from the BlackBerry App World; integrated email inbox; high-resolution screen; decent camera; dedicated music keys.
Top of the line email, dedicated media controls, high quality apps from BlackBerry App World, integrated Facebook contacts and calendar, HSDPA and Wi-Fi in a basic-phone-sized body...
SureType keyboard isn't for everyone. OS feels old. Few third-party apps. Too expensive given the feature set.
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.
Pricey for its category, Fuzzy looking images with its camera
Some more advanced phones at its price, Disappointing camera, Slightly belowaverage battery.
BlackBerry OS is looking dated; app store is pricy and offers less choice than competitors; we miss the QWERTY keyboard; Web browser doesn't impress; small screen.
Browser doesn’t auto-fit non-mobile sites, trackpad slightly unresponsive at timesLook and Feel...

The updated looking handset is definitely a sight for sore eyes, especially when it’s more than over due at this point, but there isn’t anything too eye catching with it to catapult it over the competition.However, the biggest question mark...-

If there is one target audience that the RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G is targeting, then it's none other than entry-level users looking to move up to a smartphone. Naturally, the Pearl 3G perfectly fills the gap in making the transition smooth and...70

I’ve been a BlackBerry Pearl user for some years now, having had the 8110 since it was launched. Admittedly, even then its lack of 3G was a bit naff (BlackBerry was very slow to come to the 3G party) but I really liked the pocket-friendly form...80

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...-

For a brand which has suddenly found itself violently thrust into the consumer spotlight, somewhat bleary eyed from the enterprise and business world it previously inhabited, the Pearl 3G is a fantastic move.The device invites a whole other segment of...-

There's no doubt that the new BlackBerry Pearl is a meaningful upgrade. It feels and acts much more like a quality device than its predecessors, and it finally doesn't have to give up important hardware features to get to its undoubtedly good...70

The 9105 is a nice little addition to Blackberry's consumer-friendly Pearl range. But while I'm happy to see the trackpad replace the trackball, the improved camera and processor, and pleased that the addition of 3G connectivity hasn't...75

The BlackBerry Pearl has finally gone 3G! We all know and love the Pearl as RIM's first true foray into the "consumer" market after years of carrying the torch as the "business" brand. And now the tiny smartphone (indeed, this one is the tiniest in...-
