    It could be added in a future upgrade possibly, or some 3rd party could write an app for it.

    You know, I was walking down Waikiki last night and I was like, "ooo I should probably take a video of that," but alas no video on Pearl. Le sigh.

    Yeah I was kinda bumed out about no video recorder myself and wondered why they didn't make it with one.

    Re: why cant pearl make videos

    I'm not really sure, but I really have to believe that the lack of video recording capability is limited by the size of the Software Application that would be required to accomplish this. The Pearl OS is much larger than that of the other BBs and really pushes the limit of the 64Meg chip already.

    Just my thoughts on this subject.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I don't see how that would be a problem. A tiny sop that accesses an encoder library... Hmmm. That sounds more like laziness on RIM's part to me.

    Yeah, but you have to have the encoder library on the BB also, and the App to control the camera and memory transfer wouldn't be so small.

    I'm sure if we wait a while someone will write one.

    Re: why cant pearl make videos

    I knew the Pearl didnt take video before I purchased it so I dont miss it. I had it in my last phone and think out of roughly two years used it 4-5 times, mostly just to try it.

    15 second jerky choppy blurry clips dont do anything for me. Sometimes friends send me videos and I always think to myself just send a picture. The video starts, then blurry choppy when they move it then a second of decent view then blurry choppy jerky when they try to move it. Just send pics.

    I dont think its a memory issue as even with 14 additional programs loaded (Gmail, 3 IM's counting OZ, bbspell, Google Maps, RDM, bunch of games) I still have 36 megs of memory left out of 64. That should be more than enough to handle anything.

    FWIW, yes I did delete all the unneeded languages and programs (brickbreaker, password keeper,etc...) I dont use and that how I get so much free memory. I also put everything I can on the 2gig MicroSD card nothing goes on the main memory except programs.

    GET RID OF BRICKBREAKER?! YOU'RE INSANE! But thats a good idea. Deleting programs and languages. I'm going to do that once I get home.
