    How Many People Dont Use Their Pearls For Media?

    Advertisement



    Im curious. I actually think Im the only one. I dont use my Pearl for videos or music at all. I have a MP3/Video player for that. So I decided not to even buy a microSD card at all. So am I the only one that doesnt use their Pearl for media purposes?

    Really I dont use my card for anything except pics...I have an ipod for my music and videos...sometimes I think I wasted my money on the microSD card cause I'm the kinda girl that 'needs' to have everything...

    i don't use my pearl for the music/videos either. i have a video ipod for that, which is with me almost as much as my pearl. i do have a microsd card though, and do have songs on it - just in case i don't have my ipod and want to listen to music. for "just in case".

    I used my Treo quite a bit for video (especially if I had a cross country flight). I haven't had much success converting video to my Pearl, and, to be honest, the lack of full screen viewing is a little annoying. Time to remember to bring those silly earbuds with me next time I fly USAir

    My iPod went throught the washer and wont hold a charge(will only work on the base or via computer) so I threw a few of the songs from my playlist on there so I could listen.

    I also put a few videos to show off to the guys.

    I don't use Pearl for videos, and very rarely for audio (except ringtones).
    I do click a photo now and then with Pearl...

    Yea really don't use it for media. Although the new Roxio Media Manager makes it a lot easier. I know it converts video which is super cool! I have pics, some mp3 and a couple movies. I never really use any of it though. Most of the time I'm surfing the net. I have a PSP and iPod to do all the multi-media stuff I really want.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the question should be this.If pearl users could get a firmware update either from BES or Internet servive that incorporates a media player like the 8800 or Curve maybe we all would use our Pearls for media. The whole point of me owning a BB Pearl is so I don't have to sit at a PC for hours sync-ing!

    Re: How Many People Dont Use Their Pearls For Media?

    I have a whole bunch of songs and videos on both my Pearls but I seldom ever get a chance to listen to them or watch the videos. I guess I'm waiting for the right time...lol....like when I'm ona long flight or when I'm stuck at the doctors office. The lack of my ability to watch videos in full screen mode is a major irritant for me and whenever i start watching videos I get turned off by the fact that som much of the real estate is wasted in the Pearl.

    Re: How Many People Dont Use Their Pearls For Media?

    When I first got my Pearl I converted a lot of videos, some home stuff, porn and a few shows from my DVR. Then the novelty wore off and I decided, not knocking the Pearl, it is just to small. Its great in a pinch as its easy to carry but I just use my laptop for these things anymore. Dont have to convert, worry about supported formats, space issues or fool with anything.

    The camera is not that bad but I rarely even use it unless I dont have a real digital with me. The quality is soso unless your in bright light with a non moving object and they cant be blown up good enough for quality printing IMO.

    I use it for Music ALL the time when i am bored or waiting around. I have a few videos from when this person let you upload them in the .avi format for free and put those on my pearl I don't watch the movies a lot but they are ok quality just wish there was a full screen option like everyone else.
