Quick Review: BlackBerry Pearl 8120
The BlackBerry Pearl 8120 is the first device we have subjected to our new ‘Quick Review’ criteria, which involves a more everyday testing procedure, and a simplified, shorter review that’s easy to understand and quick to follow.
– a stylish alternative to other BlackBerry models
– exceptional email integration
– easy to set up
– SureType keyboard is faster than many QWERTY models
– good call quality
– doing simple tasks is sometimes too hard, i.e. changing the ringtone
– some popular email formats are not supported
– no 3G or HSDPA
– subpar camera quality
– Pearl trackball not to everyone’s tastes
The BlackBerry Pearl 8120 adds WiFi to the fashion-concious Pearl line that has already flaunted its great mobile email capability and good productivity. However, the lack of HSDPA data — and the strange omission of GPS — leaves the 8120 behind many similarly-priced competitors.
