    The web isn't slow...but flash isn't supported yet. So it's half true.

    Everyone on here has a bias opinion, they will tell you to buy one, because we all have one.

    I think that a forum with over 100,000 members can't be wrong.

    welcome to the satcks truck22.
    you heard incorrect on the web being slow. I have one bar and it's still fast. ten times faster than my rzr with full bars.

    for youtube that is correct the BB will not support flash.
    The BB will do so much more than that it is really overriding that small drawback.
    I am biased as I love the BB

    reasons:
    functionality, being able to multitask, web then phone, right back to the page I had
    speed, the best I have ever seen
    durability, dropped it down 2 flights of stairs yesterday still tickin.
    email, real time pushed email, max 2 min delay, no polling every few minutes.
    ability to use it as a modem when i'm out.

    take this as you will.

    If youtube is the most important thing to you I will say do not get the BB, if you really need the ability to recieve email and use a true mobile organizer, email, calendar, messaging, and such. The BB is right for you.
    Been a long while since last login. Sorry all, adjusting to a new life is great and hell at the same time!!

    Few more months? It's not even due till like late September...and that's just rumors. I'm think it will be quite a while until the 2 comes.

    I'm betting on the holiday season...just my guess though.

    You should list ALL of the bad things you think the pearl may have. I'm sure all of us here will help you determine what is true or not.

    yeah there is another thread saying 4th quarter for Pearl 2

    As for the bad things... let us know what you heard or think might be a problem and we will try to help you figure it out. I think it is a nice device and never had any phone issues.

    $325? that means you are getting the phone without a contract. yeah you cant stream vids from youtube...yet. but on the other hand you never get lost with BB maps, you can look up your email, load applications that make life easier, hook it up to a laptop and have internet anywhere you go etc. plus the size of the pearl is a big plus imo very compact. It is worth getting this phone. you can still watch videos on the phone just need to preload them on a comp. ; )
