-I'm Nicole Lee, Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at the RIM BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100 for AT&T.
This is the first BlackBerry Pearl we've seen for almost 2 years, and as you can see, the form factor has not changed a lot.
On the front, there is a nice and colorful 2.2-inch display.
Underneath that, you do get the SureType keyboard which consists of 2
characters per key.
This might feel a little awkward for some people, but I personally found it quite easy to use.
This is because of BlackBerry's SureType software that automatically completes words for you.
The navigation array, as you can see here, mimics that of the bigger Curve 3Gs.
It has an optical touch pad instead of the traditional roller ball Pearl.
On the back is the 3.2 megapixel camera and LED flash.
The BlackBerry Pearl
3G comes with OS 5, but it is upgradable to OS 6.
Of course, as the BlackBerry Pearl is a BlackBerry, it gets access to all of traditional BlackBerry features.
That includes access to BlackBerry corporate e-mail support, Microsoft Exchange, as well as your own personal e-mail.
You also get support for BlackBerry Messenger and other IM services.
The Pearl 3G comes with other apps as well.
That includes Facebook, Twitter, and AT&T apps like
Mobile Video and Mobile Music.
The BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100 is available for $150 with a new 2-year service agreement with AT&T.
