    QVGA Pearl Please!

    Advertisement



    I would like to see a Pearl with a true QVGA (240 x 320) screen! However - RIM, if you're listening - please do NOT scrunch up the keypad to make room for a larger screen. I'd rather the Pearl get a bit longer to accommodate the larger screen.

    In fact, I find short phones annoying as they keep flopping sideways in my pocket!

    Well, like I said, I wouldn't mind if the Pearl was a little taller overall to accomodate the taller screen. My Pearl screen measures ~ 1 5/8" in height and packs 260 pixels. That means for 60 extra pixels it needs to be only 3/8" longer. I can handle that!

    I tried out the Curve, but I actually found the form factor of the Pearl to be nicer. Except for viewing web pages, I didn't find much advantage to the landscape format of the Curve.

    The whole point if the pearl is to have a small, compact blackberry.
    If you want a bigger screen, get the curve. My girlfriend has the pearl and the curve has 10x more features and a much bigger/better screen. I am a proud owner of an 8320, and every mobile store I go to, they tell me I can't get any better than this.

    I agree that the Pearl was designed as a compact Blackberry. But there are other phones on the market that are compact and have QVGA (portrait) screens. So I think it would be nice for the Pearl too.
