Quick Look: BlackBerry Pearl 9100 & 9105

By Adam Zeis on 26 Apr 2010 11:53 am EDT

I was super excited to get to WES here in Orlando in hopes of getting some news on the Bold 9650. I've been dying to head back to Verizon (for the service) and will definitely get my hands on one as soon as I can. What I didn't expect however was to become such a fan of the new Pearl series (the 9105 in particular). The device feels amazing, and although the keyboard may be a bit of an adjustment for some, I think that most will get the hang of it in no time. Its action-packed (although its has no OpenGL support) and I would honestly consider passing up on the 9650 for a chance to rock the 9105 (yes ... seriously). We had a walkthrough of the Pearl earlier, and Kevin has been swayed as well and is all about the "pocketability". Check out the video above for a quick look at the two devices and what they have to offer.



"Wow...another...what is this?"



The compressed full qwert version would be great for my sister. The big question...wil VZW get it?


Kevin or team or anybody else, as this will be running 256 of memory, does this mean that it will not be able to run os 6 or webkit.


do we think itll come to verizon?


HAHAHA 1:11 - 1:18!

"Showing like this?"

"You want a 9700 in there?"



but i'm wondering how difficult it would be to pound out an email on that t9 keyboard, even with sure type. no thanks.


I'll say it'll be worth trading Full QWERTY for pocketability and compactness.


Its probably the new "mini" SIM card slot...


love love love that phone! i want verizon to get it so bad so i can dump cincinnati bell. i have the pearl 9100 with them right now.
