    joe, I don't suppose you read the camera specs before you purchased your pearl, but with a 1.3 Megapixel camera you can't really expect high res photos from it. But most of the pictures I have seen taken with it are surprisingly good for such a low end camera.

    You have to keep your hand steady. I've taken some pretty nice pics with it. Pics at night suck, but most cameras do. When my Nikon 5mega pixel camera does email I'll switch lol.

    Re: Sorry but...

    ...this thread just proves my point about devices with cameras. If you want/need a camera, I say buy one, a camera that it. I just don't believe that BlackBerry's (or other mobile devices for that matter) 'need' to have a camera...

    Just my opinion, of course...

    Its a gud feature but so unfortunate they cudnt drop a 3.0 pxl chip in it.

    No big deal, The 1.3 is garbage tho.

    Well, Samsung did just release a 10 megapixel camera phone overseas so I guess its just a matter of time.

    If you want a real camera, it will not likely be embedded as a frill on a mobile phone!

    Take it for what it is, and don't be disappointed in it. The Pearl camera stands up to every other similar camera in a phone that I've ever seen or used.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I just don't get it when people are genuinely disappointed with a camera(be it 1.3 MP or less) that is built in to a cell phone. If a camera is an important thing to you, or if you take that many pictures, wouldn't it make sense to buy or already own a high-quality digital camera. They have come down so much in price and gone up so much in resolution. Plus, having a camera built-in a cell phone is more of a convenience or spontaneous feature, not intended for professional or art photography.

    And how much more would have paid to get a 3.0 mp chip in you Pearl. You do understand the concept of Capability VS Cost don't you.

    Relax yo. I do have a real camera. My point is it woulda been that much cooler if the pearl coulda replaced one more device in my consumer slothy arsenal of toyz.

    I am disappointed that they did not install Dolby surround sound speakers on the unit so I could use the Pearl as a home theater.

    I have a 1.3mp camera phone and it takes great pictures. I will take the picture at the largest setting, then reduce the size and it is crystal clear. Make sure you always clean the lens, keep your hands steady, and you are in the right lighting.

    Re: Sorry but...

    I think its a valid point. Im not looking to replace my Nikon SLR with a phone but with whats coming out of the Nokia stable, you would think BB could do more than a 1.3 mp in their first camera phone. Ive had a 1.3mp camera on a Nokia phone for over a yr now (6682 which I also do email on). Current Nokia N series have 3 and the newest N have 5mp. If youre a company coming out with a superstar model (pearl) at least give it more oomph in that regard.
