    Subtle Differences Mexico and Canada version Blackberry Pearl 8100

    Advertisement



    I actually had a chance to compare two 8100's, one made in Canada and the other in Mexico, side-by-side.
    Although, they both looked exactly the same, there were some subtle differences between the two. The Canadian one had a brighter screen display than the Mexican one, probably because of different graphics card. The Mexican 8100 screen was a bit yellowish when compared with the one made in Canada.
    Also, the assembly of the one from Mexico didn't seem that great, as when I tried to slide the sim in the metal cover lock, the whole thing got dismantled. Although no big deal, since it took only few second to put it back in its position, it gave me an impression of poor assembly of this phone or may be the entire production in Mexico, hard to say.
    The trackball on the Mexican phone felt a little different, it was a little less free to move, with your finger, than the Canadian one.

    On the other hand, I found the camera on the Mexican phone a little better than the one made in Canada.

    I just wanted to post on what I found. I've no conclusion on which one's better.

    I'm convinced the pearl is way too delicate but thats a tradeoff I can live with actually. Has anyone dropped a naked un protected pearl on the concrete?

    Writing this on the N train in NYC at the moment. My pearl is so much better than any ipod. Muah haha, backoff!

    There was that one post that said the member let a co-worker play with it and he dropped it on concrete.

    What would frost me about that is you just know the person said "Oh sorry about that" and then walked away.

    "Sorry about that?" Pay up fool.

    And that is why I don't let anyone touch my Pearl. If I want to show them something about it, I show them something about it. I don't hand it over so they can screw it up.

    Slipped out of my hand yesterday and dropped three feet onto concrete. Minor cosmetic damage to the silver edge, but the speaker for the speakerphone and ringers just stopped working. Somewhat suprising. Except for this, it is the best phone I have ever had. Mine was made in Mexico.
