    Yep, if it wasn't for the pearl I wouldn't own a BB. I like the candybar style form factor and the smaller size. I just couldn't carry around a bigger BB. It's because I keep my phone in my pocket all the time. I think the pearl attracted everyday users to blackberrys unstead of just focusing on corporate side of things. I think it's a great decision on RIMs part. Impulse buy and still no regrets.

    My first Crackberry, was a 7105t and an impulse buy. When the contract was finished I got the Pearl. I discovered Pinstack a couple of weeks ago.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I am the last of my family to go BB. So yes this is my first BB.

    Although, I think I will be giving my Pearl to my younger brother and getting the 8800 Crimson when it is released.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I never really thought about BB until a buddy got the pearl. I liked his so much I got one. The 8700 never made me look twice, but for some reason the pearl did. I am sorry I did not get one sooner. This thing is awesome, and the third party apps make it much better! This is also my first push email device.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I got the Pearl yetserday as BB is the only push-e-mail service supported by our company. From the little experience, I absolutely love the phone. I did have three BB prior. Then switched for almost 2 years to the Treo 650. Loved it as well, but got pretty frustrated with it over the time. Unreliable OS. So now I am back the BB. Cheers.

    The Pearl is my first bb and I'm very happy with it. What won me over b4 buying was the reputation of the bb OS and hearing all the problems folks had with the Windows-based handhelds.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    I can understand why there are so many new users like myself, I wouldn't have considered a BB before the Pearl becuase they were in comparison large beasts and I like something to fit nicely into my jeans so I know it's not there (the constant ringing is enough of a reminder!).

    I think it's a great addition and so far very pleased.

    My 2p.

    Re: new BB users because of Pearl?

    This is my first BB. Needed a new phone and my company is picking up the tab for the plan so I figured I would be nuts not to have the ability to get e-mail, etc. The decision for the Pearl was made by Cingular who said that the 7130, which I really wanted first, was being discontinued, and I can not stand the size of the 8700.

    I got mine last week, but have been unable to use it as it is defective and I'm awaiting it's replacement. It looks like I've picked the right one and hope to learn a lot here.

    First-time BB owner. More of a gadget hound than power user but I love it.
