    Question so now that you've had it for a day

    Advertisement



    Let's hear what people have to say about it now that they've had more time to play with it. What is the service like? What are some more pros and cons? Is it honestly that much better than a 71xx?


    and my final cheesy/superficial question...........

    does the trackball light up dif colors or just white?

    Re: so now that you've had it for a day

    the only complaint i have is that it took so long for blackberry to recognize the necessity for a phone with a camera.

    that seriously is the only complaint.

    the phone is amazing.
    the typing is easy.
    camera zoom is incredible.
    phone is tiny.
    buttons function extremely well.
    pearl is crazy.

    best phone ever.

    I agree with RIM waiting so long, but, they were more buisness orientated until this phone. Most companies don't want cellphones with cameras...

    Re: The Pearl - all it's cracked up to be?

    I am loving it. I had an 8700g before this and it is a big difference in size, but I am getting used to it. The new trackball does take time to get used to but you can set the speed of it to slow it down or speed it up. I love how you can navigate left right, up down with it. Also, I like how it has two convenience keys one on the left and one on the right. I was also able to load all the application that I had on my 8700g onto my 8100 (Opera, Tip Buddy, Pocket Express, Google Maps, Berry 411, Pro Football Schedule, and all the games. Overall I have no complaints.

    It is growing on me. I had the 8700g. Getting use to the small size is taking a little time. The camera is pretty nice. I really like the ball. You can change the sensitivity of it so it doesn't scroll all the way to the top of the page by just a slight move. All in all I would say if you can get past the keyboard, you should get the phone.

    It lights up green when fully charged! And its bright! Especially when in the dark by your bed. I woke up thinking the aliens were invading!

    Re: so now that you've had it for a day

    I like the pearl the keys are a bit smaller but its as easy to type as my old 7100i, navigating the menu's takes a little getting used to, some things that you used to hit the trackwheel to bring up now you hit the menu button.

    Mine doesnt light up green when fully charged. maybe my settings are different
