BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105

 

The Pearl 3G is a BlackBerry without a QWERTY keyboard, but is that a good thing?

More pocket-friendly than other BlackBerrys ; Good build quality ; BlackBerry OS 5 on-board

Lacks iOS/Android smartphone chops ; High pixel-density screen ; Keypad can't beat a Qwerty

, so we wouldn’t like to use it longer term if we frequently had to bash out longer emails.

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105

 

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G - or 9105 on trial here - is RIM's latest model to hit the streets, revising the Pearl 8100 series of devices. It's a revision that BlackBerry fans are now familiar with: whipping out the trackball - the namesake "pearl" - and...

Compact, all the connectivity you'd want, keyboard works well, excellent email service

Media keys sort of miss the point, screen a little small for the complete smartphone experience, browser a little slow, creaky backplate

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 is a great handset overall. It gives you the benefits of BlackBerry's connectivity, the great e-mail service and mainstream applications to give you a social mobile with communication at its core. This is packaged into a...

BlackBerry Pearl 3G (9105) First Look

 

BlackBerry's latest smartphone in the UK is an update to its BlackBerry Pearl range, bringing 3G connectivity and "more" computing power to the entry-level smartphone than ever before. But what is it like? We managed to get a brief hands-on with the...

Fast, great screen, optical trackpad, easy access media buttons, Wi-Fi n support

No QWERTY keyboard - but isn't that the point?

RIM - BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105

 

RIM's BlackBerry Pearl has always been a successful handset. Its candybar format appeals to those without a lot of pocket space, and to those who don't really want the bells and whistles of a large screen ...

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G is quite simply the best candybar smartphone in existence. It brings what is a very solid and functional line of devices up to date, and while we miss the quirky keyboard design we can live with the more standardised alternative.

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 Review

 

The BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 is one of a few new BlackBerry smart phones we should see this year. The 9105 is pretty unique though. As far as I am aware this is the first BlackBerry with a traditional style keypad. Yes, three letters on...

Messaging (email and IM) ; Integrated Facebook and Twitter ; Small and sleek, perfect for one handed use ; Connectivity

Screen size ; Felt a little cheap

BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 review

 

RIM has already provided us with the budget 8520 smartphone, but now the Canadian manufacturer has released the 9105 with 3G. How does it measure up? We review the BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 to find out.

The BlackBerry Pearl 9105 is a great entry level RIM device, especially when you consider it features full Wi-Fi capabilities and 3G. Alas, the way it feels and the presence of an alphanumeric keyboard are a little disappointing from such an otherwise...

RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 review

 

Aimed successfully at a younger audience, but the Pearl 3G 9105 also has strong enterprise credentials.

If RIM and its carrier partners get the price right – and we expect the 9105 to be free on a £25-per-month contract when it becomes available (hopefully) next month – then RIM is onto a winner.

Blackberry Pearl 3G

 

RESEARCH IN MOTION'S Blackberry Pearl 3G 9105 is due to show up on mobile phone networks over the next few months, and The INQUIRER recently had an exclusive hands-on briefing with the latest candy bar handset

The Blackberry Pearl 3G is RIM's most recent in its consumer range of mobiles, and it has improved network access and an updated keyboard that falls in line with the rest of the phone manufacturers

BlackBerry Pearl 9105 review -

 

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

Browser doesn?t auto-fit non-mobile sites, trackpad slightly unresponsive at times
