BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 video review

Read the full BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 review

As you would expect, the lack of a QWERTY keyboard means the Pearl 3G is not exactly an ideal phone to use for tapping out longer emails, so if you’re used to the keyboard on your current BlackBerry then this isn’t the handset to upgrade to. However, the phone is obviously targeted at those who want a smartphone that doesn’t look like a smartphone, but still retains all the same functionality. If you fall into this category then we’re sure you’ll love the Pearl 3G as it looks quite stylish, has superb email features and great connectivity.

Our end users would absolutely love this if it came with the "standard" Blackberry Pearl keypad.

Looking at the RIM website the Pearl 3G 9100 comes with a qwerty SureType keypad.

Whilst I appreciate there might be someone who likes the 14 key keypad (as seen on the 9105 above), RIM are utter morons for not releasing the 9100 (which has the standard 20 key keypad) in the UK.

I wouldn't touch the 9105 with my foot to kick it away, if I want to send emails ona 14 key keypad, I can use my phone which already has that and not bother buying a BlackBerry.

A couple of seemingly trivial but irritating regressions from the previous Pearl. The 9105 cannot be used with a charging pod; it does not have the contacts on either side of the handset. The 9105 is supplied without the usual BB leather case; the reason being that pulling the handset in and out of a case does not send to standby or out of standby - a staple of almost all other BlackBerry's. If you are upgrading from an old Pearl you will find these two omissions irritating, and makes you wonder what RIM saves by cutting corners on otherwise high end handset.
