    Has the Pearl been quietly fine-tuned since its release?

    Advertisement






    BBHub reader Jaron Brass is on his second BlackBerry Pearl. He bought his first one on September 12, the official release day.
    After encountering some issues with wiped data, he then secured a replacement from T-Mobile earlier this month.
    In his second model, Jaron says that he has encountered some improvements that has him wondering if some fine-tuning hasn't been done in the last several weeks.
    Jaron has at least eight reasons for suspecting this has been going on, and a sixth observation that may or may not explain the differences between his first Pearl and his new one.

    Visit BBhub to go over each one.

    Basically this is about how the pearl has only been out for a little while and they have already improved some of the capabilities.

    I don't see it.

    The fine tuning elements he mentions to support his conclusion [or question] are so subtle that it seems that he wants to see changes.

    The keys seem firmer?

    The trackball lights up brighter?

    He is not getting some error like on the old one?

    The speaker seems louder?

    Etc.

    I don't think any of those things would be items RIM would fine tune anyway. So, it appears all in his mind.

    Maybe, just maybe, some of the fine tuning can be explained by the fact that his new one was made in Mexico as opposed to his old one was made in Canada. I dunno, do the Mexicans use better/firmer glue? Brighter LED's for the trackball, etc? Don't think so.

    Just my opinion.

I have a bright flash lens , when I had T-mobile OS I only got the Java error comming out of sleep once and that was 4 days after I got it, My keys have a purple hugh to them and are very bright, but mine was made in Cananda!!!

    I dunno if it has been "Fine tuned" per say. I mean, less than a month and claiming that actual device parts have been fine tuned? Don't see that, but maybe. I dunno...It's just like a car that you buy when a model first rolls out...Obviously there are going to be issues. I have no idea what I am saying. I am tired. Don't worry about me. Blah.

    Mine is not made in Canada or Mexico, should I be concerned?
