  • Advantages:-The BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8100™ smartphone is one of the world’s smallest smartphones and packs all of the power of BlackBerry. It comes complete with digital camera, multimedia capabilities and expandable memory. And it offers users everything else they would expect from a BlackBerry device – including phone, email, web browser, text messaging (SMS and MMS), instant messaging, organizer applications and more. The BlackBerry Pearl is small enough to take anywhere. It’s the ultimate combination of brains and beauty. Small. Smart and Stylish. So you can live large.The BlackBerry Pearl is rated for 3.5 hours of talk time and up to 15 days of standby time. In our tests, we were able to get 5.8 hours of talk time. RIM also says the Pearl’s battery can last up to 21 hours with just music playback and 6 hours for video playback.
  • Performance:-Music playback was OK. The Pearl’s speakers weren’t the best for listening to songs, as it produced some background hiss when we cranked up the volume. Plugging in the included earbuds helped the situation a bit. Also, be aware that the headset jack doesn’t accept Walkman-style headphones. We were blown away by the video performance of the Pearl. We watched a number of clips and never got that pixelated, blurry effect that often plagues the video performance on mobile devices. Overall, the device was pretty responsive. We didn’t experience too much lag time when launching programs or switching between apps. We did notice, however, that the Pearl didn’t have sufficient memory to activate the camera while we still had the video player open.
