    Re: Blackberry Pearl

    I am a newbie to this forum, and I REALLY need help on the pros and cons for buying a Blackberry Pearl, the 8120.
    I will be using it for my own personal use, but kind of want to have more features (like web browsing, emails, etc.).

    I currently have a sony ericsson w810i, and it has been a year now. And I kind of wanting to switch to a smart phone, which I will hopefully keep for a long time.

    And besides Blackberries, which other cellphones out there that's on the same level as the Blackberries? Like Samsung F700 or LG enV2????

    So, can everyone help me with this? I've read on a couple of other websites online, and there are mixed opinions. And since this is a forum dedicated to cellphones, so it will definitely be help and beneficial.

    Thanks so much!

The only one I've seen that should definitely be coming out very soon is the Storm, and I'm not sure how I feel about a touch screen (never had one) for a Blackberry. The Bold looks really nice but I have no idea when that will be released for Verizon if at all, and I don't even know the name of the flip phone Blackberry, assuming that one is also expected out for the holidays.
    The Blackberry Storm will basically get more attention than the other smartphones that are trying to "uncrown" the iphone like models... besides with all the applications and software that are out there, the Storm seems to be heading in the right direction.

    Touch screen is a nice feature, but I liked it only when I had my Palm treo... I'd never felt the pro's and con's of owning one similar to an iphone w/o a Qwerty.
    But if you're company is getting them or giving discount incentives... I will get "the storm" myself.

    I had a pearl but lost it due to water damage, the benefits of a half qwerty is simply a smaller phone and smaller area for the fingers to move along when typing. Right now I have a Samsung SGH-i616 which is full QWERTY . In comparison I was able to message and type faster with the half QWERTY. The pearl is a good phone to have, it small and sleek with many useful features.


    Hope that Helps
    Peace

    drawbacks? you cant type as fast. predictive text is often wrong and gets annoying.
    I've had a Pearl since it first came out, and just picked up the new flip version as well. I've also used the Curve and other full size BBs extensively.

    Personally I prefer the SureType (i.e., "half) keyboard. The reason is that because each key has two letters, each key is larger and therefore typing is more accuracy. The full QWERTY keyboard means smaller keys, a larger buklier phone and to a degree (although some disagree) slightly worse typing accuracy (i.e., you're more likely to hit the wrong key). SureType makes errors once in a while, but its so rare that its not a problem, particularly if you're just sending brief emails and text messages. And of course, for me, the smaller phone is a huge advantage.

    Incidentally the new Storm also uses a SureType half-size keyboard, which is a good idea IMO. The "full size" keyboard on the iPhone is part of the problem -- too hard to consistently and quickly hit a tiny little square on the screen with no tactile feedback.
