Christmas Phone Review Blackberry PearlDecember 10, 2010 # 7:10 pm # Uncategorized # 2 Comments
Although the current Blackberry pearl is an update to a previously released phone, it is still competing for attention in the market of iPhone 4 and HTC Desire. And for good reason, the price and extras included in what appears to be an outdated phone.
With the Blackberry pearl you are not going to get the Glamorous looks of the iPhone, or the blistering speed and tech of the HTC Desire. Then again you are paying a fraction of the price. And for that you will be using a fantastic crossover phone for exploring the world of Smartphone’s.
For your money you will get a 3.2MP camera, 64Mb of internal memory and now there is an expandable slot for an SD memory card for storing your pictures, music and videos. A lot of offers now come with a free 1GB SD card with them, which is excellent value for money.
The OS looks old and hasn’t changed much from its original Blackberry inception, it is not flashy or jaw drop beautiful. But, it is functional and will get you to everything you need quickly and efficiently. The Pearl isn’t capable of a lot of the new functions of the current generation Smartphone’s, though a lot of standard functions are lurking in there.
There is a standard telephone keypad, which by Smartphone standards is incredibly outdated. And there is no touch screen either which is becoming something of a standard now. Yet again it just works, no frills, no special ability’s. Just a good no nonsense handset with albeit limited Smartphone capability.
If you are looking for a very reasonably priced upgrade phone to check out the basics of the Smartphone revolution you can’t go wrong with the pearl. In fact, if you’re just looking for a decent phone, take a look at this one.
