    I just put together a comparison chart between the Sidekick 3 vs Blackberry 8100. If I made any mistakes and/or want to add something to my chart than please let me know. Thanks.

    Re: Comparison Chart: SK3 vs BB 8100

    Ever since the Blackberry 8100 came out, I love it! In fact, it's better and can do more things than Sidekick 3. It also cost little bit cheaper. To proof it, I decided to make a chart of what the Sidekick 3 and Blackberry 8100 have and don't have. I hope this will be useful when deciding which one to get. You will thank me later. If I made any mistakes on my chart or want to add something to my chart, please let me know. (AOLIM: Satelliterocks2)

    Display Size (pixals)
    240 x 160
    240 x 260
    In terms of content issues, I found a few:
    • The SK3 can only do 3 e-mail accounts, not 8.
    • When you mean "can be charged up using USB", do you mean charging the battery or hook up to the computer using USB? If it's the latter, then you have an error there.
    • To my understanding, the Pearl does not have flight mode.
    • According to phone scoop, the SK3 doesn't have a calc.


    Otherwise, very helpful!

    I found the keyboard of the Pearl to be very bothersome, but that's just first impression from a dummy model at the mall.

    I didn't realized you reply to me until now.

    I go and double check.

    If you got this information from Phonescoop, they are not very accurate. They made a few mistakes there.

    Well, I know that the Sidekick can only do 3 e-mail accounts (it says so in the cartoon on sidekick.com), but the rest I got from PhoneScoop. They aren't completely accurate, but I thought I'd throw it out.

    By the way, does the SK3 have a calc?

    ok... I still checking on "2" and "3"... but for the "1", it's correct, it does have 8 accounts, not 3. The calculator have been fix from previous corrections I made. It says that it does have it but you have to download it first.

    Are you sure about that? Everything on T-Mobile.com and Sidekick.com says three.

    Like I said in the chart on the footnote on the bottom of the page, you have to download it to your Sidekick 3. It's available for free.
