    That IS tiny

    Here's a comparison of the Pearl (comparing LxWxD and weight) next to the other models I've owned plus the 7130g I was considering:

    BlackBerry Pearl (8100)-4.2" x 1.97" x .57" 3.1 oz
    BlackBerry 7100T-4.7" x 2.3" x 0.8" 4.2 oz
    BlackBerry 7105T-4.7" x 2.3" x 0.7" 4.3 oz
    BlackBerry 7730-4.76" x 3.03" x 0.71" 5.0 oz
    BlackBerry 7130g-4.5" x 2.2" x 0.7" 4.2 oz

    No. The 8100 pearl can play video with OS 4.5 but will not record.
