First Look: RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8120 (T-Mobile)

1:16 /

T-Mobile customers looking to upgrade their BlackBerry Pearl or get their first smartphone will find a good choice in the RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8120.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at www.cnet.com. >> And today we're taking a first look at the Rim Blackberry Pearl 8120 for T-Mobile. So this is pretty much the same version as 18T. Your big additions are going to be the integrated Wi-Fi and a 2-megapixel camera with video capabilities. And also you get a better web browser. T-mobile also throws in a couple of their services. You've got the Myfaves plan, which gives you unlimited calling to five contacts. And you also can use the Pearl with their HotSpot at Home service, which lets you make calls over a wireless network and saves some of your cellular minutes. I tried it and the setups really easy, but the call quality was kind of [inaudible], not so great. There's some crackling, and my friend said it sounded like I was crunching a paper bag in his ear. Regular cell phone calls were great. And overall I really didn't have too many complaints about this. It's a great upgrade to original to the original Pearl if you've got that. Or if you're looking for a new Smartphone and it's your first time using a Smartphone, the Pearl's a great choice. And you can't beat it because it's fifty dollars less then AT&T's version. So it's 149.99 with a two-year contract. And that's about it. >> I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the Rim Blackberry Pearl 8120 for T-Mobile. ^M00:01:15 [ Music ]
