    the 20 and 30 have a few minor changes to the exterior of the phone, revised keypad, exterior Micro SD slot, etc. They also have 2.0 MP camera vs. the 1.3 MP for the 8100.

    The 20 has WiFi and the 30 has GPS (I might have gotten those two backwards).

    Hope that helps a little.

    The XX30 models are CDMA phones.

    I didn't notice any difference in the keypad other than the 8130 now has a vibrate icon on the shift/# key (bottom 2nd from right) where my 8100 did not. But yeah that's about it.

    The way I remember it, and it's silly, is 8120 - 2 for 2 internet networks (carrier and WIFI), and the 8130 - 3 G (for GPS, even though Verizon cripples it like everything else they touch haha). Not sure if it will help you lol

    Re: pearl 8100 vs 8120 vs 8130

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the 8120 is a lot better than the 8100. Used an 8100 today and felt so much better to go back to it. The feel of the new firmer keypad is so much nicer.
    The general feel is of a much higher quality than the 8100. Definately the best BB they've made so far, and I thought that of the 8310. This beats it because the build quality is awesome!

    Which is better between the 8120 and the 8130 then? ...and why? Oh and I can care less about Sprint TV.

    I thought the 8120 was going to have both Wi-Fi and GPS, am I wrong?

    Yes, you are wrong unfortunately. That would be wonderful, but the gsm 8120 will only have Wi-Fi, while the cdma 8130 only has GPS

    When is the GSM Pearl 2 coming out? I haven't seen that one. I thought it was only in CDMA right now.

    Re: pearl 8100 vs 8120 vs 8130

    I've never thought of that, as I am a CDMA user, but I'm sure there is some restriction on the device.

    It might work though.
