First BlackBerry Mobile with a standard numerical keypad rather than a QWERTY keyboard. 9105 eschews RIM's proprietary keypad design for a more traditional 14 key alphanumeric layout which is satisfying to press, and they’re also nicely spaced so you’ll rarely hit the wrong button. Email is where BlackBerry handsets traditionally excel, and the Pearl 3G is no exception. setting up email accounts is super easy, and the inbox is surprisingly spacious given the fairly small screen.
It has a amalgamated inbox which can hold your emails from multiple accounts, direct messages from Twitter, Facebook and the like, as well as text- and media messages if you choose to set it to. Using the BlackBerry is also a great way of looking after your calendar and contacts. If you use the BlackBerry for business you can spend the day out and about entering contacts or appointments and then when you get home you can sync the BlackBerry with either a Windows computer or a Mac. It also works the other way round so you can work on the computer and transfer the info to the phone. Perfect.
The design is quite attractive, too, especially the wave shape used on the keypad, and ergonomically the handset feels very comfortable to hold. The side-mounted buttons are now covered with a rubberised membrane to make them more weatherproof and the handset also uses an optical trackpad.
This handset runs V5.0 of the BlackBerry OS, which has good support for multitasking and there’s a decent range of apps available in the BlackBerry App World store. The OS now also gathers emails, tweets and Facebook updates together so they appear in the same unified inbox and the handset was very stable during use. It’s speedy too, with little if any slow down in evidence even with lots of apps open.
Pearl 3G is likely to be popular among consumers as well as business types it obviously needs a decent camera. Thankfully, Research In Motion has delivered the goods as the rear of the phone is home to a 3.2-megapixel camera that has both an LED flash and auto focus. Despite the rather average resolution of the sensor, the camera actually takes quite impressive shots that capture rich-looking colors and decent amounts of detail.
The browser itself is reasonably good but its usability is compromised by the phone’s smaller screen. The Pearl 3G’s display measures just 2.5in across the diagonal and although its resolution of 360 x 400 pixels isn’t bad for a candy bar shaped handset. It has Wireless N Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, running for around four days of usage.
