The Bottom LineThe 8120 Pearl is a tidy addition to the BlackBerry family and irons out our niggles with its predecessor. That said, if you already own an 8100 we're not sure if it's worth buying the 8120 unless you value the updated features it has to offer.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is as huge as its predecessor, but it has a brilliant screen...
The BlackBerry 8120 is very similar to its predecessor, the 8100, and overall it's not a very different phone -- but there are a few differences worth mentioning.
The most significant addition to the BlackBerry 8120 is Wi-Fi, which allows you to quickly access your emails and the Internet via Wi-Fi hotspots. We tested it out and it works well. It's particularly useful if you're indoors and can't get a good GSM signal, although we would have liked to have seen 3G too.
