Amazing improvement on BlackBerry 8120 ^^
I've had a BlackBerry 8120 for nearly 4 years and decided to upgrade to the 9100. It's a great improvement from it's predecessor. The camera is much crisper, though I noted there is still no ability to zoom while recording video (maybe I'm being too ambitious haha). The audio is magnificent. I was concerned that it was made in Mexico (my 8120 was made in Hungary) as I read reviews about bad quality control. But the device appears to be intact. The only thing I didn't like about this device was that the keypad takes some getting used to because the keys are much smoother than the previous model. For those of you wondering about user interface, BlackBerry 9100 supports foreign user interface meaning you can have your menus in Japanese, Korean, etc if you like. You just have to load the proper device software. Overall, I'm very happy with this product. I would say that if you've formerly owned a BlackBerry 8100/8120/8130 then you would be happy with this purchase. ^^Read full review

Excellent phone at an amazing size
The Pearl 3G styling is superb. The bezel around the screen looks angular and shiny, just like a cut and polished gem. The media keys are barely visible making the device look clean with a beautifully curved grid of keypad buttons, one of the best looking color schemes I have seen to date. The 3G Pearl is no longer designed to be an entry-level smartphone; it’s now a full-featured powerhouse, so streamlined it has the feel of a sports car. The device is light and curvy on the back making it a pleasure to hold and to use. I found that the somewhat stiff rubberized sides mean harder to press convenience keys and volume control buttons. The thing about the Pearl 3G that convinced me to migrate from a Bold 9000 is that it’s basically the same guts as a 9700, but in a much smaller and stylized package. I probably wouldn’t have gone with the Pearl 3G if it had compromised on the features like some previous Pearl models had done by omitting WiFi or real GPS. Migration from another BlackBerry is the way to go if you’re interested in the Pearl 3G. With the system having access to all my friends’ names in the phone book, the only time that SureType seems slower is when I’m typing a password in the mandatory multi-tap mode, or using language that I know the BlackBerry won’t recognize. The software, hardware and battery are specifically tuned to play music for extended periods of time just like the 9700. I love the dedicated media buttons; not having to switch your application in order to change the volume, pause, or fast-forward is priceless. At home I’ve been using the BlackBerry Remote Stereo Gateway and it makes the BlackBerry feel like the ultimate remote control. The media buttons are controlled by a single flexible piece of plastic on the top of the device. It works the same as all the modern optical trackpad devices: play/pause and mute are in the center, rewind is on the left and fast-forward is on the right with volume controls on the top-right side. I’ve been using much more music features how that it’s easier to access, so much so that my 9100 now has more songs than my iPod. The ease of running music on my device has often made me forget about it when I pick up my phone to make a call.Read full review

Excellent upgrade to the 81xx series. Highly recommended if you love the Pearl but want a better camera, better screen resolution, video capabilities and 3G. Retains its compact design and much more elegant than its predecessors. Recommended for those who do not require the bestest awesomest phone to date, and want something compact with great organizational PDA qualities.

Great product if you're a blackberry person.
the phone is basically a 9700 with more memory in a different casing. It has 256MB instead of the 9700's 128MB but all other hardware specs are the same; which is very good. So its very responsive even with OS6 and has gap-less audio playback. If you're new to blackberries it will take some getting use. they are as intuitive as the other phones. I bought it because: 1. its very stable 2. good battery life 3. apps run well in the background 4. encryption 5. pc support (usb drive, pim sync, media sync, offline app loading) 6. flat rate data plan 7. bbm BAD: i don't like the keyboard. keys are smooth and flush so accuracy isn't the best.

Excellent product. Recommend!
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. Remember that the tried and trusted Blackberry 8100 has been in continuous production for years. It was the first Blackberry for many and they are still happy to use this accessible smartphone. An unpretentious phone offers a stunning battery life. If you do not use the proprietary boosted battery or torture this model (which is too simple for that) you can get at least one week of true mobility. 8100 was (and still is) a beautiful model, which should definitely get into Top 100 of best gadgets of the century. A true living legend. I guess that 9100 will follow suit. I was convinced during a 1 week use. I will not touch upon software features, but will speak about what’s on the outside. For the first time I got hands on a Blackberry without a QWERTY keypad, which is not nice, but I could not find another option in Moscow at the time. It will be even more interesting.Read full review
